Finished the Gospel of John today in the New King James Version. Am also reading a verse by verse commentary on Revelation called:

The Message of the Book of Revelation by Charles T. Chapman, Jr.

Available here: https://litpress.org/Products/2111/T...-of-Revelation

I picked it up at a second hand store my MIL works at in Menominee, U.P. of Michigan.

"Shattered" the book about Hillary Clinton's 2016 Presidential campaign.

So far pretty good if you are a hard core political follower like I am. Interesting to get a glimpse of the inside of the campaign. It is written pretty fair handedly but you get the feeling the authors are Democrats just aggravated at how poor their candidate was and how poor of a campaign she ran.

One take from the book that confirmed my view was they said that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump had a set of beliefs that everything they did and said was wrapped around (no matter how crazy in both cases! LOL) where Hillary didn't really have a vision for America. She was just counting on her advisers and speech writers to come up with one for her. She is smart but in many ways clueless. She has been in a bubble too long. Adored as a Governor's wife, then as First Lady, then a Senator and finally Secretary of State.

Re: What Are You Reading Currently, 2.0

Been doing more watching than reading. Watching tons of preaching and debates. Mainly focused on debates dealing with refuting cessationism. Been reading through both the old and new testaments as I'm being led.

I finished reading Job in the ESV a while ago, and am in Psalms. Still in Ezekiel in the NLT, but am in Acts in the NKJV.

Recently bought and assembled a new bookshelf, so I could give my many books a proper home instead of the floor and nightstand.

My wife and I have begin reading through the Gospel of Matthew with our children, from a Family Devotion Bible (ESV)*. We intend to read through the rest of the Gospels and Acts, and then, decide from there what to read next.

Sometimes I do the reading, sometimes my wife. We then do some explaining of concepts or other relevant info at a level our children can understand.

*This is the Bible:

Re: What Are You Reading Currently, 2.0

Just read over my last few responses and realized I am in the same places as before.

Still reading Acts in the NKJV. Still reading the Psalms in the ESV. Still reading Matthew with the family, from the ESV. Still reading Jerusalem: The Biography by Simon Sebig Montefiore.

I just haven't been reading much lately. I seem to go in waves, with crests and valleys, where I am reading constantly, then very little, then back to a lot.

The last few books I've purchased are The True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ in the Gospels by David Limbaugh, 1984 by George Orwell, and Commentary on the Torah, with a New English Translation and the Hebrew Text by Richard Elliot Friedman.

I am really looking forward to the last one, as Genesis is my favorite book of the Bible, and Abraham is my favorite personage/character of the Bible.
