What are you reading?

Post by Callisto » Thu Jul 12, 2012 8:44 pm

This is a popular thread topic that I've been a part of on almost every forum that I've ever been involved with. People like it because they can find new things to read, get recommendations, and so on.

For the purposes of this board, in this thread you can really post whatever you're reading, whether it be popular fiction, nonfiction, apologetics, and so on. Just post whatever you are reading and a picture of the cover if you want to.

So, to start:

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" - J.K. Rowling (re-reading my HP series all the way through again)

Image
"7 Truths That Changed the World: Discovering Christianity's Most Dangerous Ideas" - Kenneth R. Samples (apologetics)

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Haven't read Chesterton, but Lewis quotes him a lot. Is he good?

Has anyone read both the OT and NT in parallel? I'm up to 1 Samuel in the OT and Luke in the NT. It is proving to be a most fascinating read to see both the similarities and differences, and all made possible with an android app called YouVersion.
Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

No, but I've read The Iliad and The Odyssey, on the hopper. :mrgreen:
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

I guess I'm going to find out. I've read a lot of his quotes (which are good food for thought and/or very funny/clever) and some articles, but I've never really read his written work either.

the book of joshua :)
Our rightousness is of filthy rags and in the eyes of God all have gone astray and nobody is justified under the Law. We are saved by the Grace of God through our faith in Him and in Him who he has sent Jesus Christ alone. There is no other way.
