The Bait of Satan, John Bevere


For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

It's about how satan uses offense to keep Christians from hearing God. It's a very good book

I just requested it from our public library. It does look like a fine book to read!

 

 It reminds me of the Screwtape Letters. by C.S. Lewis.

It's quite different from that actually. Perhaps certain aspects are similar.  The main point is for Christians to stop being offended, and really obey God and love people.

It's been too long since I've really gotten into a book. Lately I've hardly opened one that wasn't a textbook. I have some scifi and historical fiction calling my name once the semester is over...

Currently reading:

-The Anne of Green Gables collection for myself - we're up to World War 1, and seeing the characters react to that has been interesting to say the least

-One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, a Soviet-era Russian novel about life in the gulag, for a History class book-report

If your interested in a real eyewitness to life in a Soviet gulag; not a novel. I suggest "The Gulag Archipelago" Volumes 1-4 by Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Heavy reading; but well worth the effort.

Am interested, on my own time. Wasn't assigned by my teacher. :)

Same author. Denisovich was (quite controversially) published in the Soviet Union while this stuff was still going down.

Also, teacher is an immigrant from a former Soviet Union country, had parents and grandparents effected, as a historian has some knowledge of country's history, seemed to think book was a fairly accurate picture.

Some Susan Jacoby, namely her book on the history of the American freethinkers movement called fittingly enough "Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism". Also enjoyed her bio of Robert G. Ingersoll "The Great Agnostic: Robert Ingersoll and American Freethought".

Other than that a few comic strip reprint books and a LOT of books on the American Civil War the best of the lot being "The Civil War" by Bruce Catton and "Battles and Leaders of the Civil War" by Ned Bradford.

Still working on the Anne collection, working on an anthology of mysteries by various authors (currently in the Sherlock Holmes part), just finished a novel involving dragons and a friend's self-published poetry volume.

I practically have my own library.  I favor books of an apologetic nature (defending the faith).  Right now beside me is "What's so great about God" by Dinesh D'souza..

Jesus on Trial by David Limbaugh.  Mr. Limbaugh is a lawyer that affirms the Gospel and it's historical truth.  Some do not like truth, but the gospel is truth. This is a library checkout and is about 405 pages with many notes and references..
