  5. The Road to Serfdom, by F. A. Hayek.
    I’ve also been reading through McLaren’s A Generous Orthodoxy. I like it, but honestly I’m a little cautious about it. Coming from a similar background, (ie, LWCC, Brooklyn Park, MN) you can probably imagine why some of McLaren’s thoughts seem quite… different. ;-)
    I’ve had my eye on the Jesus of Suburbia that Chris mentioned in the first post, also. It’s going into the queue.
    Technically I’m also reading Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development by Craig Larman… but I don’t think that’s really the sort of thing you were asking about.
