Still finishing up Francis Schaeffer's The God Who Is There. I used to think Schaeffer was overrated - now I realize it was I who underestimated him. The book is something like forty years old, but it is still completely relevant. Highly recommended!

I have a couple of Wright books that I'm reading:
  • The Resurrection of the Son of God

    What Saint Paul Really Said
Plus, I'm reading the graphic novel (which is a fancy way of stating that I'm reading a comic book series all bound together into one book) 'The Dark Pheonix Saga' by Byrne and Claremount.
Peace be with you.

Maxie Dhunham's commentary on Ephesians from the Preachers Commentary

The Italian Secretary by Caleb Carr - so far an excellent Sherlock Holmes book.

Jonathon Strange & Mr. Norell by Susanna Clark which is shaping up nicely to be the next great fantasy novel.

I read whatever book my 1 1/2 year old daughter brings me...

Today it was "Potty Time" and "My First Animal Book" and "Charlie Brown's 'cyclopedia Featuring Animals."

I learned that that a goat says "Baa!"

I finished up with Schaeffer's The God Who Is There last night. Now I have to finish Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly On Prayer by C.S. Lewis.
