This has been on my nightstand for a month.
Between grandkids, other visitors, more pressing reading and life I haven’t opened it yet.

A friend who asked me to read it is coming over tomorrow to discuss it. Oops.
It will fit into my reading shortly.

Has anyone read it?
Any thoughts, comments?
I've not read it but a great book on SCIENCE - almost exclusively the human body SCIENCE is "The Case for a CREATOR" by former atheist, Lee Stobel. His first book, that came forth from his coming into belief in GOD, is "The Case for CHRIST." He was a journalist investigating scientific evidence that Points Toward GOD. And the case for Christ is evidence for Jesus. Hard to lay down.....so attention grabbing!
So your answer is "no" and your thoughts and comments thereon are nonexistent. Good to know.
Always wondered what "nonexistent" felt like.
Soli Deo Gloria!

The Bible Doesn't Say That, by Joel M. Hoffman. It's ok, but more of an intro to hermeneutics text (at most). There's nothing new in this book, but it's an ok read.


And I just finished Killing the Rising Sun: How America Vanquished World War II Japan, by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. You'd be safe to say I'm not a Bill O'Reilly fan, but I decided to give the book a shot. Interesting read for sure. Again, nothing new, but my knowledge of the Pacific theatre was not big to begin with so it kept me intrigued. Not a very balanced book, but I'm guessing that's not what O'Reilly was going for.

"Mixed Bag", by Jim Rikhoff. I've only read the dedication page, and had to set the book down to keep my teardrops from soiling the page. I'll pick it back up later this evening.
There's some good reading in this book, but I somehow misplaced it. I've looked all over the house, car and truck. Can't locate it.

So, I've picked up one I started a while back and put down, "The Secrets of Story", by Matt Bird.
I'm old but I'm happy.

My father was in the Navy in the Pacific during WWII. He would always say it was "a lifetime ago" and that people were much different back then.
