Trying to work through a few different books right now. I normally don’t read 3 books at once because I’m not smart enough to do that. I keep bouncing from book to book lately. I think I probably ought to focus on just one, but I thought I’d share and see if you guys knew anything about these books or had thoughts about them.
Flickering Pixels (Shane Hipps)
I had read a few ads for this, then caught an article written by this guy in a magazine, so I figured I’d pick it up. So far, I’ve liked it, but it’s a slow read. A friend who read it tried to wave me off on it, but I’m trying to finish it and make my own judgment about it. It does look like Hipps is arguing for a medium-is-the-message idea h ere, which I personally don’t agree with. However, it’s too early to tell.
One cool thing about this book is the use of imagery. As Hipps takes us through different modes of media/communication, he often will include pictures/diagrams to support what he’s saying. It helps a pretty thick text come alive.
My feelings on this book remain to be seen. Anybody else read it?
As a worship leader, I’m always interested in seeing what scripture says about the Holy Spirit. In the worship world, I think God’s Spirit has been really misunderstood, abused, denied, etc. I’m hoping this book will help me be clear on what God’s Word has to say.
This one started slow for me, but I’m digging into now.
Who’s reading this one?
Dan doesn’t know me very well.
I love reading weird things.
So, I’m guessing I’m going to love an entire book about how cod changed the world.
This one will definitely warrant a blog review, huh?
