Ehrman's problem is that he didn't go through the program correctly. I've heard from several minister friends that going through seminary they first break apart your faith and then build it back up so you have a stronger faith. Ehrman didn't do that so when confronted with the truth about the New Testament, he let his weaker faith get lost in his own ideology.

I should probably say that I finally got a copy of "Blue Like Jazz" and have started reading it. I'm about half-way through and I have to say, "Great book!" Thought-provoking, funny, insightful, and honest! I love it! Thanks for the recommendation.

You're welcome. I love that book! If you really like it you should check out Don's other three books, and he's got another coming out in September I believe. "To Own a Dragon" is awsome, and yes it is for "older men mentoring younger men" but it's still a great read for anyone. My favorite after Blue Like Jazz.

Reading the Illiad now. It's pretty cool so far. I've got the translation by Lattimore.


Me too. It's very good.


On a similar note, I'm reading some hitorical fiction -Helen of Troy, which is very much her perspective on The Iliad.

I'll have to look into that. I have a translation of The Odyssey by T.H. Lawrence that I'm really looking forward to reading when I'm done with this.

Finished the King James Only book, and now about halfway through a book I received for free at an event my church held yesterday - Dr. Tom Nettles from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary came to give a few lectures on the life, ministry, and theology of John Calvin as well as the effect of the Reformation upon the modern church. Everyone who attended received a free copy of THL Parker's "Portrait of Calvin" - a re-printing that's being published by Desiring God ministries with a foreword by John Piper. Book's about 125 pages and I'm a little over halfway through it now Very Happy

Finished reading Tolkien's The Hobbit.
And am now awaiting some books I ordered.
- The Phantom of the Opera (Gaston Leroux)
- Captain Wentworth's Diary (Amanda Grange)
In the meanwhile I continued in De Silmarillion (Tolkien) but it's a bit hard to get through in my humble opinion. Though quite interesting nevertheless.

Currently working on Dune Messiah, but I'm really not in the mood for it. I'm only a couple chapters in, so I might give up it

Some mind-candy romance novel. . .I expect to forget it as soon as it's read and move on to another. .. .kind of like eating M&Ms. I've found it difficult to interest myself in literature or non-fiction since graduate school. . . reading 500 pages per day of history will do that to you. Of course, being a librarian, I have access to a wide variety of reading materials and often avail myself of them.

For those that like to read history, try Alfred Crosby's "The Columbian Exchange" it is one of the best books about the history of the "discovery" of the Americas that I have ever ready, it will really change your perspective on the history you were taught in school.

I'll be reading the Twilight series soon as the library is going to host a series of "Twilight" based events this fall and I need to see what it's all about so I can help with the planning.

I've just picked up The Silmarillion again. I started it five years ago, but we had a newborn at the time, so my concentration wasn't happening! Hoping to get more into it this time, because it is interesting!

Well, both books arrived and I've finished reading both too in a couple of days. Razz

Probably wrap up the bible in the next week or so.

After that, I'm going to start one book and two studies:

The Book:

Martin Luther - Bondage Of The Will

The Two Studies:

Josh McDowell - Evidence For Christianity
Martin Lloyd-Jones - Studies In The Sermon On The Mount.

Tolkien's "The Treason of Isengard." It's part of a series of his son's study of his father's collected notes and how he slowly developed the story of LOTR from The Hobbit and what more ancient Middle Earth history had been created.
