Re: What Are You Reading Currently, 2.0

i haven't actually read this book, but this thread is developing into a great reading list, so i wanted to cache it here for later. I'm not sure that his perspective will veer in that direction, but his reputation suggests that it will not. We are mostly ignorant of this, but if i listed the patents held by Unca Sam specifically for weather modification, the rest of this page and the next would be filled. But my understanding is that the book is as much about revealing the connections between politics and religion that are forcefully obscured, and why, as it is about climate change.

looking forward to reading Narcissism: Denial of the True Self , i have some experience with Codependence models, which have been very helpful, but i likely could use a dose of that, ty.

Re: What Are You Reading Currently, 2.0

I've recently stopped reading everything except Dr. Alter's The Five Books of Moses: A Translation with Commentary.

It's such a massive volume, I realized I needed to give it permanent attention until I complete it. I'm into Deuteronomy now, so it shouldn't be long until I move on to something else.

Re: What Are You Reading Currently, 2.0

I decided to move this from the Library to the Fellowship Hall in order to get more traffic to the post, as I think our reading habits, as shazeep has already noted, can be very educational and worthwhile.

So, have at it! Post away!

History of the Christian Church, by Phillip Schaff, vol 5

I just finished "Bad Religion" by Ross Douchet (sp?), which was a decent book, informative and mostly fair, its a mixture of social-political-religious science and observation. Very hard hitting against the prosperity gospel and all forms of liberal "accomidationists" Christianity. A decent and informative read, but nothing particularly inspiring or edifying.

Just finished Alter's The Five Books of Moses: A Translation with Commentary. What a massive tome! I will come back and share some thoughts.

I just picked up his translation of the Psalms.
