What book are you planning to read next?

I’m going to reread Desmond Tutu’s book, God is not a Christian, as I continue on my current project.

Who are your favorite writers?

In fiction I love Louise Penny because of the beautiful books she had written about a small Canadian town near the U.S. border.

I mostly read Christian and other spiritual writers as research for my books. I love Brian McLaren, and Jim Wallis. For my current book I’ve read some very good Native American writers: Robin Wall Kimmerer, Joseph M. Marshall III, and Wahinkpe Topa and Dacia Narvaez, Asian-American writer Soong-Chan Rah and several African American authors: Howard Thurman, Ibram X. Kendi, Barbara A. Holmes, and Jemar Tisby.

What do I read when I’m working on a book?

The Bible is my main source, but for my current project, I have read more than thirty different authors as I researched how the American churches are doing and what they could improve.

What genres do I especially enjoy reading?

Mystery, mystery, mystery! Everything from Agatha Christie to P. D. James to Ruth Rendell to Dorothy Sayers and Louise Penny.

What moves me most in a work of literature?

I love the interactions among the characters, plus the growth of the main characters through volume after volume, like in the Louise Penny novels.
