My other new book, Looking Before and After, which is also just now available. This is a little theological meditation on what it might mean to have a coherent life narrative, a story I could tell about myself. I don’t think it will gain nearly as many readers as Original Sin, but I’m fond of it all the same.
(And no, I’m not nearly as prolific as this might make me look. I didn’t write them simultaneously. Publishers have odd and unpredictable schedules — there’s no way to know when you turn in a manuscript how long it will take them to make it into a book — and while I told Harper and Eerdmans to do me one favor and make sure these books did not come out at the same time, they cheerfully ignored me. Oh well.)
