Keep up with our counterculture conversation.
As we get ready to kick off our discussion of Mark Oppenheimer's fun and provocative book, Knocking on Heaven's Door: American Religion in the Age of Counterculture, a few housekeeping details:
I've set up a page where all my posts related to the book will go, primarily so people who join the conversation later will find an easier way to get up to speed. I'll promote the conversation in the sidebar and link to that page.
I apologize in advance to bloggers who would like to use trackback to participate: I had to turn off that feature long ago to escape the spam, but I hope you'll post a link to your own entries in the relevant comment string.
I haven't tried leading a book discussion via blog before. My goal is to post something related to a key issue raised by the book each week but then to say more in the comments rather than post multiple blog entries as the conversation evolves. I hope this keeps things relatively simple to follow.
Finally, you'll notice that when people do leave a comment, there's a link near their name that says "Permalink for this comment." When you respond to someone else, you can include that link in your comment to make it easier for others to see what you're responding to.
Have at it!
