I just started reading The Fault in our stars on Late Sunday night and now its Wednesday and I am almost done with it. Its a great book so far. I like the writing style and how I am learning new bigger words from reading this novel.

I'm currently reading "Holy Spirit" by John Bevere....it's excellent!! As well as "Nurture" by Lisa Bevere, a must read for all of Gods' women. They are both very good writers and I love how they put things in applicable terms. As for novels, The Redemption Series by Karen Kingsbury & Gary Smalley is one of my all time favorites.

I am just wondering what everyone is reading right now. Any new authors out there that you can't help but love?
For me, I am still on Chronicles of Narnia. But I am also reading Treasures of Darkness, Treasures of Light, and some throw back Peretti. I also like Francine Rivers/

I am plodding through a book called 'The Twilight of Abundance' - Best Beloved recommended it. Quite a lot of math in it, which I don't properly understand, but am just getting to interesting bits that give insight into the intrigues of men supporting the idea of global warming, and what they attempt to do to push their agenda forward despite growing awareness in the scientific community that their 'evidence' is based on faulty models and manipulation of facts ( i.e the hockey-stick graph). The book is so titled because, according to the author (who oughta know what he is talking about, being a leading light in his field), we are about to enter a new dark age, where mass starvation, war, rioting, a cooling planet and energy shortages are the bleak future prospects. As a previous reader observed, there ought to be a phone-number for the Samaritans written in the front! While I do not disbelieve this authors claims (not even half-way through yet, mind), I do wonder how fast or slow the unwinding of this projected course of events is going to take, noting that it is already in the early stages - and anyway, it is my confident expectation that the Lord will be returning fairly soon ( which the author has not so far factored in, though he does quote Revelation at the chapter headings), so for me there is no great threat to be braced for, even if what the author claims is an accurate portrayal.
If you are interested, the author is David Archibald, and if you are interested in seeing the 'other side' of the global -warming debate - not the stuff pushed out by the IPCC- suggest a visit to the 'Watts Up WithThat? website would be an eye-opener.

I have temporarily abandoned my efforts to get through 'The Twilight of Abundance' ( see a few posts back for details on that), and instead, having picked up a book I have had for years, intending to research something in Scripture, I find it so interesting I may well read it to the end. Already I have learned that the 'husks' that the swine eat in the story of the prodigal son - and which he was forced to partake of as well - are in fact the fruit of the Corob tree - not, as I pictured, the shells of half-eaten potatoes or the like, and at the time of writing were still harvested to be eaten by poor folks in that land, and still eaten by pigs in such places as Cyprus. Also the dark and narrow streets inside the city walls, with no paths either side, and so narrow that if you meet a string of camels or donkeys carrying wide-loads, there is nowhere for you to go, so little niches were cut into the walls to provide the traveller with a protective nook, and the man driving the donkeys from behind would shout 'your back!' 'your face!' to warn you to turn away. Reminds me of Moses in the cleft, and the 'narrow way' Jesus speaks of. The writer is actually describing the city of Beirut, and the road and views as you are going toward it as it was when he was there and writing about it, sometime before 1900 ( there is a handwritten inscription inside dated 1895). The book was written by the Rev W.M Thomson D.D and is called 'The Land and the Book', subtitle 'Biblical illustrations drawn from manners and customs in the Holy Land'. Fascinating stuff - no 'Israel' as we know it of course, no Balfour Declaration..
