By the People by Charles Murray

Learned a lot from this, and will be blogging about it more at Mablog. A lot of shrewd insight here, which makes Murray's myopia about social conservatives right near the end pretty bewildering. Oh, well.
How Civilizations Die by David Paul Goldman

Clear rating
This is a book with a lot of surprises, a lot of twists and turns. Goldman makes some questionable assertions here, but this was one of the most fruitful and thought-provoking books I have read in a long time.

Enough fun to finish it, but definitely not Austen. At the same time, P.D. James was able to fill in the back story of this book in such a way as to provide some of her commentary on what was going on at the real Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice. And ...more

I don't know how many times I have read this, but the last time was listening to it on audio in May of 2015. Crammed with wisdom.

My copy is a different edition than this one, but the content is, I presume, every bit as good.

Listened to it again on audio in May of 2015. Strikingly good in places, and poor in others.
Missionaries of Republicanism by John C. Pinheiro

A good read, and very informative. Pinheiro shows the important role that religion (Protestant/Catholic) played in the Mexican-American War. A lot of careful detail here recording how Americans of all political stripes thought religiously in the firs ...more

I read this book once way back in the day, in my teens or twenties sometime. It was vivid, and I remembered details of the book, and other details from Williams' other novel. That said, I thought that Williams was a gifted weirdo. I decided to read t ...more

This is simply a superb book. It is beautifully written, theologically rigorous, elegantly typeset, and carefully designed. Every page was easy to look at and equally easy to turn.

“Education is the process of selling someone on books. ”
Douglas Wilson

“God gave us minds to think with and hearts to thank with. Instead we use our hearts to think about the world as we would like it to have been, and we use our minds to come up with rationalizations for our ingratitude. We are a murmuring, discontented, unhappy, ungrateful people. And because we think we want salvation from our discontents...”

Will Is there an error with your page? It says you've been reading those 3 books in your 'Currently Reading' section since 2009.


Margaret Thanks! I've read several of your titles and plan to continue on into Omnibus. I used it while working as a long term substitute at a Classical Christian School and now nothing else with suit!
