James K. A. Smith

A wonderful book that tries to speak to both academic and popular audiences. Addressing themes like the theology of culture, liturgy, and formation, Smith argues that what we love determines how we live our day to day lives and the “liturgies” that accompany this. Ultimately, it is these habits and practices that shape what kinds of people we are. While Smith does not speak directly about the medical world, the ideas he brings up are useful for thinking about how medicine shapes what kinds of people we are and how we as Christians ought to respond.
