God Laughs and PlaysI recently read David James Duncan’s God Laughs and Plays: Churchless Sermons in Response to the Preachments of the Fundamentalist Right. Great book, not without problems, but a nice way to wind up a day. The Century has a very enthusiastic review of it here. Jay Stevens of 4&20 Blackbirds also has a good summary of the book’s contents on his blog that is worth taking a look at.

This continues the discussion I brought up earlier in the week with the Oren Lyons piece, and Duncan gives an answer to the question I raised about whether Christians can bring anything to the table other than the 1492 Law of Discovery. Now, whether it’s a good answer, that’s the part worth discussing.
