Book recommendation: ‘The New Queer Conscience’ by Adam Eli

A very short book (more of a booklet, really) but with a clear and powerful message: queer people anywhere are responsible for queer people everywhere. Drawing inspiration from his Jewish faith, Eli proposes for the international queer community a way forward characterised by solidarity, intercommunal responsibility and radical empathy. Considering how queer people are treatedFortsätt läsa ”Book recommendation: ‘The New Queer Conscience’ by Adam Eli”

Book recommendation: ‘Old Ones in the Old Book: Pagan roots of the Hebrew Old Testament’ by Philip West

This book retraces the origins of the worship of Yahweh not from a strict monotheistic religion, but a polytheisitic one where He was among many other Deities. The likely political, cultural and historical reasons why He went from being the protector God of Israel to being seen as the only and one true God areFortsätt läsa ”Book recommendation: ‘Old Ones in the Old Book: Pagan roots of the Hebrew Old Testament’ by Philip West”

Some week-end reading

Finished this novel today. It’s pretty good. Not particularly scary and not one of King’s best works. But to be fair, I read The Outsider right before reading this one so my expectations may have been too high since that was probably the best book Stephen King has released in the last decade. I’d give TheFortsätt läsa ”Some week-end reading”

Some reading I’ve been doing

I’ve had an unusual amount of free time lately. Normally I work in a warehouse, packaging COVID-19 tests kits. But the demand is so high, we keep running out of materials. Over the last two months I’ve had a whole month off from work and in other circumstances, that would have felt nice. But withFortsätt läsa ”Some reading I’ve been doing”
