This morning I finished Peter Leithart’s illuminating work Deep Comedy. I say “illuminating” because never before have I seen Solomon, Derrida, Homer, Shakespeare, & Jesus compared & contrasted in such a way as Liethart does in this book! A wonderful amalgamation of philosophy, poetry, literature, & theology, Deep Comedy explains just why all of these categories ultimate play off one another.
Earlier this week I finished reading Marilynne Robinson’s novel Gileadwith my wife. We have read through three books together so far this year and we have both really enjoyed the process! Reading out loud before bed has become our daily routine and I highly recommend it.
