I thought I'd start a thread on our favorite books. Of course, everyone knows about the 'usual suspects' - Brennan, Mike Yaconelli, etc... But here's an author you may not be familiar with, but absolutely should be, as he takes grace deadly seriously and helps you laugh all the way through to tears and beauty:
Robert Farrar Capon!
He's a chef, he's an Episcopal priest with a Lutheran heart, and sadly, he's dying of Alzeimer's these days...but damn, can he preach. Check him out.
