Stuff I'm Into Lately

Books I'm Reading:

coverThe Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell

It's a clever sci-fi story set in the 21st century. The premise is that intelligent life is discovered in a nearby galaxy and the Jesuits send a mission. She's a good writer and it deals with some serious theological and ethical questions.

cover
Life of Pi by Yann Martel

A fun read about a boy from India, the son of a zookeeper, who decides to adopt every major world religion for himself. Lots of perceptive nuggets about God and zoology.


Movies I'm Watching:
coverThe Butterfly Effect

Much better film than I expected. Deals with the quandry of time travel. What would you change if you could go back? And the unintended consequences. Has interesting implications from chaos theory. The idea that even the smallest action can, over time, have huge and unpredictable ramifications.

Here's a book that might be very
informative, especially in regards to "peaceful" Islam!

There is a movie in the works based on The Sparrow with Brad Pitt attached. I've never read it, though. I should check it out.
