It passed the acid test: the kids liked it

I also liked the book, though until the very end I thought it was a bit aimless. I have to admit that I was very pleased by the way the author drew together threads that made the story rich. The comic relief

Abraham Lincoln by Allen C. Guelzo

Nothing less than a tour-de-force. I'm tempted to say that only a religious person—particularly a Christian—could understand this almost certainly unbelieving politician and thinker. Guelzo finds a theme in Lincoln's theology that he, successfully in ...more

“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
Mortimer J. Adler

G.K. Chesterton
“If you argue with a madman, it is extremely probable that you will get the worst of it; for in many ways his mind moves all the quicker for not being delayed by the things that go with good judgment.”
G.K. Chesterton

Francis A. Schaeffer
“We are not being true to the artist as a man if we consider his art work junk simply because we differ with his outlook on life. Christian schools, Christian parents, and Christian pastors often have turned off young people at just this point. Because the schools, the pastors, and the parents did not make a distinction between technical excellence and content, the whole of much great art has been rejected with scorn and ridicule. Instead, if the artist's technical excellence is high, he is to be praised for this, even if we differ with his world view. Man must be treated fairly as man.”
Francis A. Schaeffer, Art & the Bible
