Read in July, 2008

I bought this book in September 2006 and read about 2/3 of it, after which it got lost in a pile of other books that needed reading. What I want to do with it is read (or at the very least, browse through) all of the books outlined in this text. Sounds like a long-term project ... I'd better get started so I'm not dead before I finish!

24.0% "This next one might be interesting. It's "Who Moved the Stone" and is a 1930 'investigate journalist' account. In light of "Jesus, the Cold Case" - a modern investigative account, it might be amusing to compare the two, which clearly come from opposite ends of the theological spectrum."

25.0% "The author of this next book ("Prayer") is Ole Hallesby, a Norwegian who wrote 67 books, mostly on dogmatic theology and ethics, which he was professor of. This book is not on those lines (one can't imagine any of those becoming best-sellers)."

36.0% "This entry is about A.W. Tozer's The Pursuit of God - written in 1948 by a conservative American pastor who loved the writings of the mystics and was scathing about 'the frantic activity of modern evangelicals who like to substitute motion for worship'."
