I got hooked on Beverly Lewis' Amish fiction books.  Warning!  They are addictive.   ::blushing::

Longing for God, Foster and Beebe

Using Foster's well known theme of different streams, this book separates Mystic tradition into seven paths. For each path the authors provide an introduction and three or four examples of that path. Each example is another mystic writer and a sampling or overview of their work. At the end of the book are provided a section on Women and Spirituality, and the Contributions of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

Great introduction to the Christian mystic tradition.

Two books, but only a little at a time. "Saved without a Doubt," by John MacArthur, and also trying to glean some lessons from A. W. Pink's old book, "Practical Christianity." Both have been very interesting thus far, and despite some things that I don't necessarily agree with, they are nonetheless good books. MacArthur teaches about assurance of salvation, and so does Pink, albeit in a different way.   ::reading::

In the Spirit of Happiness, Monks of New Skete
The First Seven Ecumenical Councils, Davis
Philokalia, Vol 3, Ware, et al

Spirit of Happiness was pretty good, but got a bit tedious toward the end. Even so, made some good observations.

Ecumenical Councils was better than average. Written by a Jesuit, he argues that perhaps the RC and EO could better get along if they would each agree to use the seven councils as their joint de-schismatic starting point. From a Protestant perspective, it provides an unabashed view of the political maneuvering that resulted in not only the existence of councils, but their decisions. It's actually a fun read from that perspective.

Philokalia is one of the four volumes of this EO spiritual classic. Composed of sayings of monastic spiritual leaders, the four volumes shine various lights on Eastern thinking about our common faith.

Francis, You are so right! I have read nearly every clean book in our small library and now I am reading Amish books and I love them. They actually make me think about my walk with God.

I'm reading this:


At the Edge of the Woods

Quote
At the Edge of the Woods

Young Adult Supernatural Suspense.

A moment after seeing a shadowy figure in a slouch hat outside her window, Tandy Harman receives a call telling her to get her family out of the house immediately. After an explosion, a series of unusual messages, and an apparent tragedy,

At the Edge of the Woods is a supernatural suspense novel involving a brother and two sisters who are drawn into a conflict involving a secret town in the woods and the search for a person with the ability to convince anyone of anything. Along the way Tandy, Neal, and Danna Harman meet an older couple whose motives may not be as noble as they say and journey to a hidden town in the woods where a group of young people dressed in gray have lived for centuries. Meanwhile wispy, malevolent creatures who roam the woods surrounding the town hint of a darkness that waits if their mission' fails.


Never heard of the author.

At the moment "Surprised by Joy" C.S.Lewis, sadly, one of his few remaining non-fiction books I have yet to read.   ::cryingtears::
Nearly completed, in the next few pages his atheism shall be cured. ::amen!::

Next "C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud Debate God, Love, Sex, and the Meaning of Life" Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, Jr. 

There is no man that speaks on the subject matter as Christians we can all agree as effectively does Lewis.  To read his work is to realize we are in a very real sense, undivided.   Lewis is the epitome of humility, for one so wise certainly has opinion on doctrine, but unless I am amiss, is not so bold as to convey it.

SHADA     



The Doctor Who Lost Adventure  by Douglas Adams and Gareth Roberts

Back in the late 1970s Adams was a script editor for BBC and worked on several Dr Who episodes.  He wrote a story arch comprised of TV scripts for several episodes but the BBC never produced them. Recently Roberts took them and made them into a single full length novel.

Not sure why I got the name of the book I'm reading so wrong. It's How (not) to speak of God. I knew that but my typing finger went its own way.

I'm reading four or five books right now, including a new Jefferson bio,  a book reconciling Jesus and Darwin, and a murderer mystery, but as of today, I'm concentrating on the Rollins book. It's very much along the lines I've been teaching, just much deeper.

I read Kreeft's "Between Heaven and Hell"  enjoyed it, he has an exceptional ability to put himself into the character of others.  Be interesting to see his characterization of Jesus, let me know what ya thought of it.

Both books are wonderful! Jesus meets Socrates was incredibly interesting (and convicting!).
