(Title taken from the ever-popular not-very diplomatic sticker: )
I haven't written for a while. Everything's fine, but nothing much has been going on. Maybe a quick bullet list:
How Starbucks Saved My Life What The Buddha Never Taught The Lotus Sutra (half of it, anyway) Cave In the Snow The Crusades, Christianity, and Islam All Is Change: The Two-Thousand Year Journey of Buddhism to the West Warm Smiles From Cold Mountains The Lost Gospel: The Book of Q and Christian Origins In Search of Zarathustra The Catholic Imagination Papal Sin: Structures of Deceit Hardcore Zen Why I Am A Catholic Destiny Disrupted: A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes Don't Sleep, There Are Snakes The Food of A Younger Land Children Who See Too Much Matter Consider Phlebas Use of Weapons Meetings With Remarkable Women : Buddhist teachers in America Ad Infinitum: a biography of Latin Born to Run Sitting Still (interesting book about a Zen-Catholic intersection) caught up on Fables The Steel Remains Fight: or, everything you ever wanted to know about ass-kicking but were afraid you'd get your ass kicked for asking Waking Up: A Week Inside A Zen Monastery One Dharma: The Emerging Western Buddhism Teaching English As A Foreign Or Second Language Buddha Or Bust The Night Of The Gun The Power of BabelThey're all pretty good, but the top three I'm recommending to people are Born to Run, Don't Sleep, There Are Snakes, and Destiny Disrupted.
