Two Book Recommendations

I've stayed up way too late reading Wicked, by Gregory Maguire. I'm sure many of you have read it. If you haven't I highly recommend it. I'm only about half way through, and it's already changing the way I view The Wizard of Oz. Of course, it's already been made into a musical, but I'm not sure the musical can hold a candle to the original book. Read the book, even if you have already seen the musical.

The other book is non-fiction. For all of you looking for a more positive look at GLBT life in the church, I point you toward James Alison and his book Faith Beyond Resentment. I think it matches the way I view the church right now. Now, all we need is a Lutheran to write something similar.

I'll unpack that last comment in a later post. For now, it's late, and I must sleep.
