Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own
Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own

Review: Basically a repeat of everything I've read on the blog, at least in message. I don't read his blog often either. Less arrogant than other minimalists although he has a religious bent that may be bother some. Read his blog first, or any blogger/author to see if their style appeals to you, or check your library. I found I remove this book from my house with no trouble at all. Read more

Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalogue
Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalogue

Review: Very good book regarding the principal religious philosophies in the world today. Although the author has an admitted theosophic viewpoint, it does not often or significantly affect his writing. Perhaps the best aspect of this book is the structured methodical analytic model which the author uses in examining each world view. The model examines each on the basis of eight criteria. Such a methodology, assuming relevant criteria are chosen (and they appear to be here), gives the analysis a muc... Read more

Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation
Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation

Review: This is an elegant presentation of one of the most solidly supported theories in science. "The Science Guy" shows us clear, objective, abundant evidence for evolution, despite the often hostile rejection of these truths by much of American culture. It is as beautiful and awe-inspiring a story of the origins of life as those found in any mythology or religious doctrine. Read more

Good Grief: 50th Anniversary Edition
Good Grief: 50th Anniversary Edition

Review: Westberg explains the ten processes of grief in detail, giving guidance in what to realistically expect and how to practically deal with it. His perspective allows the grieving person to find his or her "new normal" after the loss. A must read for those in grief. Read more

The ... The Abolition of Man - The Screwtape Letters
The ... The Abolition of Man - The Screwtape Letters

Review: A great book at a great price. Great service. I purchased this as a textbook for a summer online class at college. Overall a great book but it is larger in size than I expected (so I am glad I do not have to travel with it) (approx 9 x 11 x 2 and about 3 lbs). print is nice and clear in two columns per page. Seven great stories for Christian living, in one volume. Thank You Read more

The Problem of Pain
The Problem of Pain

Review: These books are classics, and a must read for children and adults alike. Those who appreciate CS Lewis for his theological writing will find much of interest in these stories. I was personally moved to tears at least once in each book. Read more

The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway - The Finca Vigia Edition
The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway - The Finca Vigia Edition

Review: I read a lot of these short stories. Mostly they are about stoic men drinking and either killing other people, getting killed, killing themselves, remembering a death, or being witness to some death of something. Read more

The Varieties of Scientific Experience - A Personal View of the Search for God
The Varieties of Scientific Experience - A Personal View of the Search for God

Review: Some years back I set out to read as many books as I could that purported to speak in favour and against the existence of God, and see where the evidence led. I won't bother you with my findings, we all have to make that journey ourselves.
With the greatest respect for Mr. Sagan, his arguments were very simplistic, superficial, specious, and, quite frankly, not worthy of being called scientific (alliteration not intended). This is not meant to demean the great man, but from reading numerous b... Read more

The Spiritual Power of Habit - You Are What You Love
The Spiritual Power of Habit - You Are What You Love

Review: I was expecting a book that uplifted me and taught me to use better the loves I have. What I got was a philosophical/historical look at worship in the church over the ages with a few chapters in the beginning discussing how we tend to follow the society while living with buried loves on the inside of us that don't get expressed. Very disappointing Read more
