The Weekly Hit List: March 8, 2013

Of Games and God


Of Games and God by Kevin Schut was reviewed by Richard Clark for The Gospel Coalition.

“Schut provides with Of Games and God the only extensive and balanced consideration of the medium I’ve yet seen.

“Not only is the book broad and open-ended enough to remain relevant for years to come, but it is also informed and nuanced enough to be taken seriously by thoughtful fans and critics alike.

“Both sides will find plenty here to consider.”
