By the way, I would NOT put him in the "Evangelical/Fundimentalist- "I just spoke to God and He told me to tell you - Please send in your Social Security check to me so I can buy a new limo" category.
NO way.
He IS "Evangelical", that is, he brings the Gospel (The good news) to his readers. He just is NOT another Jerry Farwell or Pat Robertson...Thank God!!

Peace

I'm a bit all over the place. I usually can't make up my mind and end up reading non-fiction. I've decided to start reading some of the classics that I've never gotten around to though. Just lookin' for suggestions... Thanks!

Thanks, TC. I don't think the Bible is non-sensical junk, but I like to read Christian writers who write about spirituality and a relationship with God, not just Jesus all the time. Your honest answer is very appreciated.

I'm reading The Ground Beneath Her Feet by Salman Rushdie, although it's taking forever cause I've had a busy summer. I came across it one day on a bookstore bargain rack - what luck!

I am reading Tom Brokaw's "The Greatest Generation."

It should be required reading for high school history classes. It is inspiring and makes you realize what sacrifices were made by the great men and women of the USA during WWII and how they endured after the war.

I think I'm going to aim for a secondary education job, I like working with teenagers, and I love to discuss opinions, and my English teacher last year, who still has a vinyl copy of Under a Blood Red Sky, really got me interested. I'd known I wanted to be a teacher, but I didn't know in what area. So I'm probably gonna major in History and English. The only thing is now the state of Virginia wants all upcoming teachers to get their masters degree, which means I'll be in college for five years! I'll be in so much debt I'll be living with my parents til I'm 30!

I'm reading Elliot Aronson's 'The Social Animal' at the moment.

The best book to start with, if you're interested in Social Psychology.

"Don't Panic" a biography about Douglas Adams and all the effort that went into the making of Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy.
RIP Douglas...I see the tree.

Now I've started on Melvyn Bragg's "Credo" Bega ,Padric, Cathal...all the gang...looks promising
