Yes, I’m going to say what many of you probably could have predicted. My philosopher had a book recommendation to make.
Is there a deconvert from conservative Christianity that hasn’t been peppered with book recommendations from concerned friends, family, and acquaintances?
Yes, it is predictable, and predictably unsolicited. But it isn’t necessarily ill-intended, and the recommendation may not be badly done. Experiences vary. I try to keep an open mind, prior episodes notwithstanding.
For a dab of humor, I’ll venture to co-opt a bit of Fitzgerald here:
I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious book suggestions to me and also made me the victim of not a few tedious tomes.
