In honor of Easter, Husband and I decided to watch The Passion. You may remember this as the controversial Mel Gibson movie that came out a few years ago. As we had never seen it and it was on instant watch from Netflix, we thought: why not? This got me to thinking about "controversial" theological books that really shook my then, Catholic, beliefs. The following two, read in high school, really shaped my future theology:
1. Damian by Hermann Hesse
2. Barabbas by Par Lindkvist
I don't know if I read them at a particular impressionable time, but they have stuck with me for years. I would love to know what books rocked your spiritual world!
