"Non-Canonicle Epistles and Related Writing: arranged chronologically as well as scholars can date them, they were written from about 100 a.d through about 500 a.d.. and give us an idea of the development and arguments of the early church that led to what we have today. Much of the opposing ideas (to Orthodox thinking of the time) are now incorporated in many of our Protestant churches." Jul 08, 2015 01:58PM

"Part 4 is The Ill-Made Knight and is about Lancelot, starting at the age of 15 and ending when he is in his mid-40's. Whereas Malory had simply recounted events: deeds and tournaments that all the knights took part in, with a factual and listing style, White is telling a story with much humor. He leaves out much of what Malory included and embellishes the most interesting parts focusing on relationships." Mar 11, 2015 12:21PM

I liked this even better than the much longer historical novels of his that I have read. About half the size of The Pillars of the Earth, etc, this being shorter is also much tighter, concentrating the tension into a 48 hour period. With characters e ...more
Julie is on page 7 of 448 of Night Over Water: This is an historical thriller starting in England just after they have declared war against Germany in WWII. A luxurious Pan Am Clipper is about to leave for America with the "cream of society and the dregs of humanity." I am only a few pages in and, so far, there is just a love affair with this beautiful luxurious airplane as it is sumptuously described. I've only just barely met a couple of the characters.

Witch hunters are in town and that is not the only problem the circle faces. The book leaves plenty of room for sequels. I do enjoy these action-packed easy reading books.

I enjoyed it. Of course, I was disappointed by her reaction to some of her directors and co-stars (not to mention Disney), but I was also delighted by the descriptions of others. Her life was not as happy or as under control as she appeared in her mo ...more

This book was fun. It was entertaining to read the first half straight through, and, when I knew I couldn't afford to keep reading it like that (time-wise), it was fun when I relegated it to the bathroom...I didn't resent having to go to the bathroom ...more

“When you read Marx (or Jesus) this way, you come to see that real wealth is not material wealth and real poverty is not just the lack of food, shelter, and clothing. Real poverty is the belief that the purpose of life is acquiring wealth and owning things. Real wealth is not the possession of property but the recognition that our deepest need, as human beings, is to keep developing our natural and acquired powers to relate to other human beings.”
Grace Lee Boggs, The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century
