What Are You Reading Currently, 2.0

Hi, All

I thought I would start a new post, since the first is from 2007, and is pages and pages long, and many may not want to bother posting in it at this point.

So a fresh start it is!

Currently, I am reading the following:

- The English Standard Version of the Holy Bible, currently in the Book of Nehemiah

- The New Living Translation of the Holy Bible, currently in the Book of Jeremiah

- The Five Books of Moses, by Dr. Robert Altar, a translation of Genesis through Deuteronomy, currently in Leviticus

- Narcissism: Denial of the True Self, by Dr. Alexander Lowen, M.D.

- The Way of Humility: Corruption and Sin/On Self-Accusation, by Jorge Mario Bergoglio (i.e. Pope Francis)

As you can see, I don't read fiction. I used to, very much so, when I wasn't a Christian, especially science fiction and fantasy. But I found it necessary, as a conviction, to give that up.

I also have quite a few books on tap, as well.

They include (again in no particular order):

Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee by Dee Henderson

Psalms, A Translation with Commentary by Dr. Robert Alter

The Art of Biblical Literature by Dr. Robert Alter

The Art of Biblical Poetry by Dr. Robert Alter

The Art of War by Sun Tzu

Jesus and the Gospels by Craig Blomberg

Jerusalem, The Biography by Simon Sebag Montefiore

Ninja: 1,000 Years of the Shadow Warrior by John Man

Samurai: The Last Warrior by John Man

The Passion of the Western Mind by Dr. Richard Tarnas

Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt by Dr. Rosalie David

A few of these I started, and put down, as they are quite dense, and not easy to read. Lord help me get through them!

Which translation of Sun Tzu? I have a copy I re-read every so often that has commentary by several Chinese military generals/strategists from long ago, along with the translator's annotations.

What is your opinion/synopsis of Man's Ninja book? Is he a Hatsumi cultist or does he stick to historical fact?

Haven't heard of any of these. Are these you've already read, or are they intended for the remainder of the year?
