Just completed "Velvet Elvis" by Rob Bell, though it may not sound like it, it is very spiritual and insightful.

Received "Disappointed with God" by Phillip Yancy for Christmas, looking forward to diving in to it.

Currently reading "When the Game is Over" 'It all goes back in the box' by John Ortberg, great read.

Also, reading I Corinthians and I John, awe inspiring read both.

I highly recommend Phillip Yancy's "In the Likeness of God" with Dr. Paul Brand and all Yancy's books, he is one of the greatest writers of all time. In depth research, fascinating word-smith not a hard read but a dictionary nearby is helpful.

Quantum Dynamics Of Simple Systems - A powerful symposium about negative curvatures surfaces and how they coincide with the quantum theories. A great book with plenty of math equations and models. A focus on Selberg trace formula seems to be the central theme.

Code Ciphers & ther Cryptic & Clandestine Communication - A nice easy read on the history of ciphers and how they are used today.

Advanced Algorithmic Approaches to Medical Image Segmentation: State-of-the-Art Applications in Cardiology, Neurology, Mammography and Pathology - Not an easy read. The examples are ridiculus and some do not even work. Medical Image Segmentation is a new science but this book is not the definitive work on this subject.

Artificial Neural Networks in Biomedicine - Outstanding book. All of the examples and details are very pertinent. Not a light read but a very good one.

Digital Signal Processing: Principles, Algorithms, and Applications, 4th Edition - This book is done fairly well. The notes and examples are well done but did have few errors. The book is not designed for entry level engineers.

Ok, to answer this. I'm reading the BIBLE. I have so little time while I'm in class, too much other reading them. I'm enjoying not having any other reading demands right now.

Oh and a Calculus textbook... That's my fun reading for now. lol

re-reading "The Happiest People on Earth" which is a biography of the late Demos Shakarian (1913-1993). He was the founder of the FGBMFI (Full Gospel Business Mens Fellowship International).

It also rejects the "word of faith" camp and their "blad it and grab it" philosophy and correctly shows that some Christians will endure hardship and suffering and that not all circumstances are rosy and peachy. It shows how there are different levels of believer's faith...here's an excerpt where he goes over that:



The Apostle Paul knew that faith is paramount in the daily life of the Christian. After all, the Believer is saved by grace through faith. We are admonished to live by faith and not by sight. We are told that without faith it is impossible to please God. Jesus taught that we receive from God according to our faith and he marveled whenever he saw great faith. The scriptures not only declare that by faith we are justified, but that the righteous will live by faith. Christians are to daily engage in the good fight of faith but are to remember that through faith they are shielded by God's power. While some have faith that "is weak", there are Christians whose "faith grows" and even those who "excel in faith." Faith must be "continued in," and it varies in size. (Jesus spoke about faith that is "small as a mustard seed.") Most important, there are false teachings that "destroy the faith of some," and there are Christians who have "shipwrecked their faith." In this context, faith means the moral persuasion or conviction that leads the heart to rely on Christ. Because faith can grow or diminish, Paul was anxious to know the level of faith among his Believers in Thessalonica.

Paul realized as well that every believer faces difficulties. He didn't want the Thessalonians to be unsettled by their trials, so he reminded them that he had earlier told them they were "destined for them." Paul's Spirit-inspired teaching on this subject is very different from the modern teaching that says "word of faith" people need never experience continued negative circumstances.

Faith is absolutely essential, not only for spiritual health, but also for breakthrough prayer. James says it is not merely prayer, but "the prayer offered in faith" that will make the sick person well (James 5:15).

Pastor Cymbala's church in Brooklyn is listed as part of the Global Network org. I've only read one of Pastor Cymbala's books and that was years ago. It told about his becoming pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle. That is really quite a church. Have you ever seen any of their tapes/DVD's and some of the testimonies of how God dramatically changed folks' lives through that ministriy?
