On the evening of Dec. 2, I’ll be hosting an evening with Damon Linker and Jeff Sharlet at the McNally Jackson Bookstore here in NYC (and will be sending a proper announcement out toward that time). Damon will be speaking on his new book, The Religious Test, and Jeff will talk about his new book, C Street.
I’m sending this out to alert you to two excerpts from Damon’s book, as noted in his email (below).
Friends and Colleagues,
My new book, THE RELIGIOUS TEST: WHY WE MUST QUESTION THE BELIEFS OF OUR LEADERS (W.W. Norton), was published this week. If you have the time and interest, I hope you’ll take a look at two excerpts.
1. In Friday’s online edition of The New Republic, there’s “Religion in a Centerless Society”:
2. In a terrific cultural webzine, The Utopian, you’ll find “The Impossibility of Sexual Consensus”:

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
