    I’ve already committed myself to the Kirekegaard biography, but I’m happy to go along with anything else for the Klub. I like the idea of Violence and the Sacred, though, I have to say.

    Looking over my copy last night, I saw that I already had quite a few questions penciled in the margins. Maybe someone could answer them.

  2. I would read “Message in a Bottle”.

    And, BTW, I hate to do this to you (especially when you are currently mad at me), but you have been tagged.

    It’s kinda silly, but I don’t have a ton of blogging buddies so it’s your spousal duty to participate.


  3. Matthew Lickona says

    Guardini. And for pity’s sake, not Lickona.

  4. Rufus McCain says

    I’m glad Guardini got a vote. But let’s not be too quick to dismiss this upstart Lickona.

  5. Cubeland Mystic says

    I once saw a photo of Lickona pitching a tent above the tan cliffs of Carlsbad. Just sayin.

    Have you all read, The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov, or Silence by Endo? The later a film is being made, and I’ve always wanted to discuss it.

  6. Rufus McCain says

    I picked up Silence about ten years ago, maybe, but I don’t think I ever finished it. Maybe I will before the movie comes out.

    Not familiar with The Master and Margarita. Looks interesting.

  7. C.S. Lewis says

    I’ve read M&M at least three times. Obviously, I think it’s a great book, and would love to take it up for the summer. A film has been made of it as well, a couple actually, including a Polish mini-series. The first episode of which wasn’t bad. And Silence is also great, as are a number of other things Endo wrote. I’d love to read that one again too.

    I’d be up for the Aeneid. I think it would be interesting to read that along with Girard. In fact, I just had a mind-boggling insight for a dissertation idea: Rome according to Vergil as civilization founded on the violence of men, and Rome according to Augustine as civilization founded on the peace of Christ.
