Did you get a chance to read "Come To The Table" yet?
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco (the movie is good too).Foucault's Pendulum also by Umberto Eco if you want a truly elegant perspective into the damage that the conspiracy-minded and seekers of occult knowledge (and this not only a reference to "magic" or any silly thing like that but to any "secret" knowledge) do to others and, even more damningly, to themselves. Also, only read it if you are really, really, REALLY bored (it's like a really good and useful textbook: instructive but somewhat painful to read).
Oh. I've already recommended this one, but F. A. Hayek's The Errors of Socialism is also good. It is not a polemic, but I guess you could think of it as--using the terminology that seems to be in vogue here--a modernist deconstruction of the modernist ideologies and systems (derived largely from the Enlightenment and Romantic movements) that culminated in centrally planned economies/states (socialist and fascist political/economic systems). It's a critique of the modernist system by one of its insiders. I thought it was a fascinating read; although, I am very easily entertained. The main drawback to the book is that it was written by an 80 year-old, horribly pedantic intellectual.I'll try to remember and throw it in the trunk and loan it to you after the service. If nothing else it ought to encourage you to finding something less tedious to read. Mwa-hahahahaa! ;-)
The Secret Message of Jesus: Uncovering the Truth that Could Change Everything (Hardcover)- Brian Maclaren - Anything Maclaren is good stuff.
I've read McLaren's book. It is a good one. I always find his stuff very thought-provoking and interesting.
