I Read. II March Update.

Not to forget:

Julian Hawthorne, The Life of a Prodigal Son, by Gary Scharnhorst. FINISHED!

Very interesting biography. Through Julian I was able to put many events and important people in context. Such a life he lived. Not the best husband, or writer, journalist, friend, father… but definitely a man that represented a crucial era in America. A symbol and legacy.

  1. What a nice looking list. I got nothin' right now 😉 Well, I am reading “The Book Thief.” It's different than I thought it would be but so far I like it. I'm 1/2 way through.
    The Cold-Case Christianity looks interesting. How does it compare to Strobel's Case for Christ?


  2. I enjoyed The Book Thief. When you finish it, Blossom, let me know. I have something to share about it.

    I have not read Strobel, I can only tell you this one is written from a detective's point of view, *professional, not fictional*, and he applies the logic and deductive thinking to the Gospels. It tells you what the naturalist or materialist fallacy is, and it is also entertaining but not silly. He worked with policemen and doctors for many years, and he was an atheist. It is light yet not simple… does it make sense? Actually, I was going to finish it and see what AO has in terms of logic, since this book has a great overlap on how to properly use our reasoning, what is probable and reasonable cause, etc, applied to the Gospels.
