Currently reading?

Post by WildWorld on Thu Feb 18, 2016 1:01 am

So i figured that we should start this thread up again, what books (be it fiction, non-fiction, comic books, whatever) have you either just read or are currently reading? Currently, im reading a book called "The Bible as Literature". I figured that reading it might give me more of an appreciation for the bible once i understand the tropes and what the writers intended to say.

Believe it or not I am currently reading the Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey. Picked it up 2nd hand.

It's actually quite interesting to read his reasonings for rejecting Christianity and forming his own church.

My wife and I are currently doing a Bible in a Year reading plan. Whew! It can be quite a bit of reading.

On top of that I am reading a year devotional with the kids titled "One Year with Jesus"

That is all I have time for.

Veronika and I FINALLY just finished "His Brain, Her Brain" last night.  We had been reading a chapter here and a chapter there for the past few months.  I know it's a classic and all... but we were rather unimpressed with it.  It may have been pretty innovative or groundbreaking when it first came out, but we found it to be repetitive and not very insightful.  There were a few nuggets of goodness in there for sure though.  It's possible too that I've just already been taught everything in that book because it is/was so influential.

My library started offering the Hoopla app, which allows you to download e-books, movies, tv shows and audio books. So I am listening to "Out of the Silent Planet" with my wife. I've read it a couple of times, but she hasn't. For myself I am streaming "Till We Have Faces", which I have never read.

Nice!  I remember really liking The Island Of Dr. Moreau.  The 90's movie sucked but there was one from the 60's or 70's that I remember being pretty good.

The Space Trilogy could be my favorite book series, ever

I being a huge sci-fi fan, really love reading these classic examples of it, that really started the genre

Its also really cool to see where, each authors heart was at when writing these stories

Wells for example was very much a socialist, and was a full on believer of Darwin's teachings

I have a copy of the Space Trilogy I bought back in 1980 still. I had just came off of Narnia, and thought I would try that. Every time I started, I never finished the first book. When I came to the Lord in '91, I decided to try it again. I loved it. "That Hideous Strength" is one of my favorites. It gave me chills the first time I read it with how on the money he was with the news controlling people. I loved when BTA wrote some of the space trilogy into Dichotomy.

In the beginning of "Out of the Silent Planet", C.S. Lewis states that the book is a retort of some sorts to Well's ideology. When I read "War of the Worlds", I could see how his views is influenced by evolution.

David, how was Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert? I've been wanting to read that.

Recently finished "Christianity and Liberalism" by J. Gresham Machen. Excellent work. If you've never checked it out, do so. It's fairly short, and a rewarding read. The "Liberalism" Machen is concerned with is primarily about rejecting supernaturalism and the Gospel. He argues that despite the use of traditional words, that 'liberalism" is actually a different religion entirely. Here are a couple of my favorite passages:

"It is no wonder, then, that liberalism is totally different from Christianity, for the foundation is different. Christianity is founded upon the Bible. It bases upon the Bible both its thinking and its life. Liberalism on the other hand is founded upon the shifting emotions of sinful men."

And....

"The type of religion which rejoices in the pious sound of traditional phrases, regardless of their meanings, or shrinks from "controversial" matters, will never stand amid the shocks of life. In the sphere of religion, as in other spheres, the things about which men are agreed are apt to be the things which are least worth holding; the really important things are the things about which men will fight."

He also speaks against those who seek to use Christianity as a means to an end of advancing a worldly agenda, which can apply to both political liberals and conservatives alike.


Currently reading "Onward:. Engaging the Culture without losing the Gospel" by Russell Moore. So far, I like what I've read. Good insights on what it means to be Christian in a post-Christian American culture.

Generally good although, for an English professor, I didn't find her writing style particularly compelling, not that I could ever do better. She has many great things to say though. I do recommend it.

Schaeffer gives an analogy of the ancient Roman humpback bridges build to cross rivers. They have stood for centuries and have allows pedestrians, horses and carts to safely cross, but the y aren't capable of sustaining a modern 10 ton truck. Likewise, philosophy or religion built upon anything else but the Word of God will work for the light pressures of life, but when the heavy ones come, they crumble.
He also speaks against those who seek to use Christianity as a means to an end of advancing a worldly agenda, which can apply to both political liberals and conservatives alike.
Excellent. That bothers me a lot too. On a related note, I struggle with often wanting to see the gospel go forth as a remedy to society's ills more than wanting to see people just know the Lord and finding real life.

You know there is something freeing about being a Christian in a post-Christian culture. Since there is so much Resistance and indifference, when you speak and act, it really stands out.

This sounds good. For the thought you quoted, it reminds me of elements of Schaeffer's, 'How should we then live,' of which I've recently seen the video version.

I've heard of that.  I think I should put it on my list of books to read.

Excellent. That bothers me a lot too. On a related note, I struggle with often wanting to see the gospel go forth as a remedy to society's ills more than wanting to see people just know the Lord and finding real life.

Well, Machen recognizes that adopting Christian principles does indeed make for a better society ..... it's just that it's not the point of our faith.  It's not the Gospel.   Compared to that, everything else is of far lesser importance.  One day every nation and culture on Earth will be consigned to the ash-heap of history, but both the Kingdom of God and the Hell are eternal realities.  But I think that's something we all lose sight of from time to time, particularly in our current cultural  and political climate.

You know there is something freeing about being a Christian in a post-Christian culture. Since there is so much Resistance and indifference, when you speak and act, it really stands out.

Moore agrees with you, as do I.  And the fact that we stand out so much can actually be an asset.  Moore says we need to "keep Christianity strange."  Our liberal critics - both secular and religious - tell us we need to get with the times and get in step with the current social trends or else we're "irrelevant."  But the reality is that when we do so, we lose much of what makes us distinctive and thus much of our appeal.  It's hard to be the light of the world when you're pretty much like everyone else.  Judging from what I hear of church statistics, it's not very effective in that respect either.

On the other hand, there are some pretty huge downsides to cultural Christianity dying out, but that's something for another topic.


Anhyhow, I  keep  seeing people praise that Space Trilogy, so I guess that should be on my reading list as well.  Man, I need more hours in my days.  Smile

Not sure who Neal Morse is or why the reference, but it's pretty much the most widely read/sold book outside of the Bible.

As Neal Morse explains: "'The Similitude Of A Dream' is loosely and sometimes directly based on the book 'Pilgrim's Progress' by John Bunyan.

OK - I've read Pilgrim's Progress a number of times in my life. I should read it again, it's really good.

Good idea. It's been a while for me too.

I started and finished: Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer.

A difficult read for some of the gruesome descriptions. A depressing and infuriating read for the knowledge of governmental collusion involved in his crimes. Recommended.

Finished Anne of Green Gables a couple of weeks ago. I kind of guessed that she would make up with Gilbert by the end.

Klavan's book has some interesting info. Fun but not particularly moving.

Kind of staving off El engaño populista. A bit pedantic.

Started Porn Generation by Ben Shapiro.
