on rhetoric about books

Part of the reason I’m hoping for some pre-feedback (somewhat of an oxymoron there, I suppose) on Radical is that I saw David Platt has a follow-up book coming out. Just on the basis of the topic and its connections to some of my own interests, it seems to be a discussion I’ll want to delve into.

It may be a flaw in my character, but this sort of reaction strikes me as so hyperbolic that it can’t be accurate, and so I wonder what’s behind it. I need to allow for how others express their joy at reading something valuable. But it’s just strange to me how so many books are the single most significant book in recent memory. Whatever.

I’d better watch that cynicism.
