3 Things

"Roomy Hearts" in a "More Spacious World" is about the Song of Songs. It's fashionable these days to say the Song is all about carnal love. And if you think otherwise, well you're probably some sort of sexually repressed type or something (so the thinking goes). It's seen as a great breakthrough to deny the allegorical aspect of the Song, but this author takes the more traditional stance -- the Song is about God's love for his people -- and makes a good case.

This looks interesting. Practicing the Way of Jesus: Life Together in the Kingdom of Love

And this: Alan Jacobs argues in The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction that we need to cultivate the practice of reading for pleasure. I couldn't agree more. Scot McKnight seems to agree, too.
