It was required reading when I was in the A.C.E. school.

I was on a CBD site last week, saw it, and ordered it.

Wow! What an excellent book.

I am requiring all three of my teenagers read it.

Got to love the paces? Hey?

"The Vanishing Conscience" by John MacArthur.

Most anything MacArthur writes is worth the read whether you agree with all his theology or not.

That book is about 50 years old, isn't it?

I remember when "Treasures of the Snow" by Patricia St. John was being read on the radio back in the 1950's. It was radio station WMBI from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and it was being read in portions over a period of time. I don't remember how much of it I heard or even what it was about any more. That was over half a century ago.

speaking of reading, these are two brief blurbs from the current Pentecostal Evangel:


How many books American adults read each year

None: 27 percent
1-5: 30 percent
6-15: 23 percent
more than 15: 20 percent



Who reads the Bible

Active Christians: 98 percent
Liturgical Christians: 73 percent
Professing Christians: 63 percent
Private Christians: 34 percent
Cultural Christians: 23 percent

The source for this information is listed as Leadership survey.
I'm not sure just what all those categories of Christians really are.
Maybe that's how those responding classified themselves.

I'm rather eclectic in my literary tastes so right now I'm reading "Black" by Ted Dekker. Not deeply spiritual [or is it?] but it's the only thing close at hand other than my Louis Lamour collection.

Back in 2004 (I think) it was flashed all over the news that life time atheist Antony Flew changed his mind.

He has been credited with being responsible for the most legitimate atheist arguments against God by any atheist apologist. Needless to say his conversion took the atheist world by surprise.

He has written a new book telling about his change of mind.

It's called "There is a God." Some of the issues are a little difficult if the reader is not previously aware of those issues.

I highly recommend it.
