“Social Distancing, Reading, and Intellectual Growth In the time of Coronavirus”

While I am self-quarantining at home or practicing physical distancing, I plan to order first the new books that I do not own and second to read (them) voraciously –throughout the summer:

  1. “The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.” by Peniel E. Joseph
  2. “Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own” by Eddie S. Glaude
  3. “Capital and Ideology” by Thomas Piketty
  4. “Autochtonomies: Transnationalism, Testimony, and Transmission in the African Diaspora” by Myriam J. A. Chancy
  5. “In a Post-Hegelian Spirit: Philosophical Theology as Idealistic Discontent” by Gary Dorrien
  6. “The Enlightenment that Failed: Ideas, Revolution, and Democratic Defeat, 1748-1830” by Jonathan I. Israel
  7. “Christ and the Common Life: Political Theology and the Case for Democracy” by Luke Bretherton
  8. “Paul and the Language of Faith” by Nijay K Gupta
  9. “Pauline Dogmatics: The Triumph of God’s Love” by Douglas Campbell
  10. “The Haitian Revolution: Capitalism, Slavery and Counter-Modernity” by Eduardo Grüner

***What are you reading while you are self-quarantining at home?

*** So far, in the past two weeks while practicing social distancing, I already devoured four novels.
