Each Week on Saturday, I’ll be asking a “Question of the Week.” I’d love your input and discussion! Ask a good question in the comments and it may show up as the next week’s question! I may answer the questions in the comments myself.
Paradigm Shifting Books
I’ve been re-reading a lot of books recently and it’s made me reflect on how some books have truly changed how I thought about things. Sometimes, this even applies to whole paradigms and ways of thinking instead of simply changing how I viewed a specific event or whether I thought a specific fact was true or not. In light of that:
Have you ever read a book which forced you to re-think a topic so thoroughly that it shifted your paradigm? What was it? What did it make you think about?
The picture on this post is one of those books for me. It made me rethink how I thought about “religious violence” and even whether there is such a thing as “religious” as a distinct category from “secular.” It was a monumentally important book for me and has continually found me going back to it and referencing ideas. I hope you, dear readers, have had books like this in your own lives.
