bassmike has imperially declared Thursday to be Tag Day. The instructions follow. I confess that I hate any email that purports to put me under an obligation, and trash almost all of them, especially if they involved presuming on God to bless me or not based upon my obedience. Irritated theological instruction might follow to the sender, if I suspect they are not immune to it. So I apologize to those I name if they feel the same about such things. But I proceed because: 1) This is not an email; 2) This is from bassmike; and 3) The topic is kind of cool in seeing what people are up to.
List five things you've read or been reading lately.
Then tag five other LJ users so they can do the same.
And so on.

1. Under God? : Religious Faith and Liberal Democracy by Michael J. Perry
2. Religion in the Public Square: The Place of Religious Convictions in Political Debate by Robert Audi and Nicholas Wolterstorff (A "Point/Counterpoint" book)
3. The Dying of the Light: The Disengagement of Colleges and Universities from Their Christian Churches by James Tunstead Burtchaell, CSC. Fr. Burtchaell actually surprised me last week by writing me out of the blue after being told by Joe O'Donnell (see #5) that I was studying this. That was a real treat--to have a scholar of his statue make himself available for some follow-up questions and discussion.
4. Quality with Soul: How Six Premier Colleges and Universities Keep Faith with Their Religious Traditions by Robert Benne. I wanted to see if a "post-Burtchaell" study seemed to muster sufficient evidence to show the process as arrested or not in progress at some schools.
5. The Sword of the Lord : Military Chaplains from the First to the Twenty-First Century (Critical Problems in History) by Doris L. Bergen (Editor) My friend Joseph F. O'Donnell, CSC has a chapter in here on his experiences in Vietnam and afterward.
