“Cursing gravity
You can disdain gravity all you want, call out its unfairness, seek to have it banned.
But that's not going to help you build an airplane.”  Seth Godin.

It does seem what God often chooses to do is to leave a limitation in place, to permit and require us to learn to cope, endure, even thrive in its presence. Read more of this blog post »

36 Arguments for the Existence of God by Rebecca Goldstein

A charming book. Main characters who think and talk about philosophy and are aware of the awesomeness of the intricacy of life's details.
Strong echoes of Chaim Potok, with its portrayal of a Hasidic community and one who loves it but wants to leave.

Really I'd give 3.5 stars to this one. It started slow, I almost stopped in the first 100 pages, but kept going. When Michener introduces the Critic, my attention was fully captured. For much of the Critic section, I felt Michener sympathized with th ...more

A really good story. I'm a fan of Alternate History tales, this is alternate history on a personal level.
As I got near the end, I wondered if I would be disappointed by the ending. I was not, the ride thrilled even to the end.

“All the prophecy of Israel turns on one simple but extremely effective idea: namely that all Israel, living and dead, from Sinai to the present hour, stands in its relation to God as a single immortal individual.”
Herman Wouk

Night Driving by Addie Zierman
“Maybe faith was never meant to be some perfectly plotted, passion-driven paperback. Maybe faith is the long story of a happy marriage -- an average life made fuller, not smaller, by the pockets of silence and darkness that break into it.”

Another wonderfully honest memoir about real Christian life, that it is not as simple as many evangelicals make it out to be. I loved her conclusion,

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“Bless you prison, bless you for being in my life. For there, lying upon the rotting prison straw, I came to realize that the object of life is not prosperity as we are made to believe, but the maturity of the human soul.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

Sarah Dunant
“And, such was the sound that the chorus made together, that to have been a part of it at all was enough for me.”
Sarah Dunant, The Birth of Venus

Addie Zierman
“Faith spans years, generations, millenia. God's silence marks the pages of the biblical narrative more than I ever knew.
His silence stretches over years, over countries over generations. but its not an abandonment, it's an invitation.
It asks for our trust, for our hope, for us to stay as the night darkens around us and we can't hear a thing.”
