Struck by Russ Ramsey, Free for CAPC Members
Death’s party-crashing ways are detailed in a new book by Russ Ramsey, titled Struck: One Christian’s Reflections on Encountering Death.
Social media have undeniably changed the way many of us talk about books, and encouraged us to do it more. Whereas in the physical world there may be only certain contexts in which you’d dive into a deconstruction of Dostoevsky’s metaphors, the virtual world provides round-the-clock opportunity to indulge your literary mores. Personally, I have found this makes me form opinions about what I read more quickly and strongly, in the knowledge that I will be able to share them instantly, and have to defend them rigorously, online. This is both good – in the sharpening of my critical faculties and confidence in my beliefs – and bad, as I can find myself jumping to premature, self-consciously entertaining or harsh conclusions for the sake of a scrap or a soundbite.
