Within just a few months, two slim, brillant volumes from a great writer. "What did Jesus teach?...The only way to grasp his teaching is to read all the Gospels repeatedly, until permeates the mind." "The Christianity he bequeathed has not been tried and failed. As G.K. Chesterton once wrote, it has been found difficult and left untried."

Michelle Rosenbaum This I an AA +++ book to read.... As in statistics, I be must have a reliable source for the truth..... And there is nothing more comprehensive than the truth spoken in the word of God...... And it is true, you have top read a lot and then rd the gospels and say them out loud to others before you rally grasp what is being said. Unless if course you haven to begin reading early like Beethoven. Then again there is Julia Child and her cooking and she began late.

In our world present condition the truth is a very rare find and to many it is never realized even though a lot recognized.

Michelle Rosenbaum OK. OK. OK. No more quips..... This iPad being an apple product uses all my time editing..... Due to changing my words..... Now if a writer edits my writing that is one thing..... but I do not have the patience to sit an audit and edit a machine that tries to be a synthetic brain..... We still need the human brain for those that know how to think.....
