Just finished "The Divine Romance" by Gene Edwards. Fabulous book, a narrative of God's Love for us.

Also just finished "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." Can't wait to get the next one!

Rindy, not everyone would agree with me, but most, if not all, Americans would. her books are wonderful. I feel she is one of the best writers around. I get to meet her again for the second time on October 26. Keep me posted and let me know on how you like her books and where you are at with each one, ok? smile.gif

do you know in which order to read them?

Outlander
Dragonfly in Amber
Voyager
Drums of Autumn
Fiery Cross

hope that helps. smile.gif

CelticRose,

Thank you and I will let you know.

Susieq,
The Divine Romance intrigues me. Can you tell me more about it?

I noticed "The System of the World", book 3 of the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson was available for me to pick up (along with all 5 CDs of Stan Rogers' work) at the library yesterday so I've been a very happy boy for the past day or so.

Hi talleyrand,

I switched gears on myself...I am still reading the Iron Lance from Stephen Lawhead, but I just purchased a copy of The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav. Talk about a mindtrip. smile.gif It's an explanation of "The New Physics" for those who are not physicists. (The New Physics is Quantum Physics.) It avoids all the Mathematical trappings of Quantum Physics to explain it to those who are not mathematically inclined. It's not necessarily an easy read by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a very good book.

One of the books I'm reading is The Angel's Command by Brain Jacques. so far it's good - I haven't read the first one yet - in fact I didn't know it was a sequel until I'd started reading it... wink.gif

I've done that as well. Luckily most of the authors wrote the series in such a way that I dint need the first or second..or fourth. and on and on. they were all part of the series but still stood as separate books.(IE Jack L chalker's soul rider series and Piers Anthony's Incarnation of Immortality series)

I'm reading "Cûchulainn, an legendary irish heroe" by Georges Roth.
Probably the most ancient legend of northern europe...before the christians times.

O'siyo,
~ I have just begun reading a book titled, 'The Tibetan Book of the Dead' also called 'Bardo Thodol' by Dr. Evans-Wentz.. the primary focus of this book is the exploration of Man the Unknown wink.gif I can hardly wait to read it all! One of those books that are really hard to put down tongue.gif

I have just started a book the other day and I am finding it very interesting.

"Bulfinch's Mythology" by Thomas Bulfinch.

One of it's good points, for me, is that this answers a lot of questions, for me, with Constellation's Names and the uses of other words in our vocabulary. wink.gif Not only that, but it has a lot of stories of Morals.

I've been reading "The Lost Years of Jesus", and have almost finished it. It's an interesting book, though I can't say I agree with all the premises made. Still, it gives us a lot of food for thought.

I'm reading something similar to Dreamer1. Only not so serious. It's titled Lamb, The Gosple According to Biff, Christs Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. He's written others such as, The Island of the Sequined Love Nun, Practical Demon Keeping, and The Stupidest Angel amoung others.

Lamb is a light-hearted book, not to be taken seriously at all. It was suggested to me by Eric, and I'm rather enjoying it.

I just finished reading Wolves at our Door (the book written along with the documentary being filmed). It was very good, but I must admit the ending was sad. For any of you who have seen the documentary, but not read the book, I highly recommend it. But, if you haven't seen the documentary, I still recommend it anyways.
