Good advice all around.
City of God by Augustine of Hippo
“A man may count himself happy in having licence to slander; but he will be far happier if deprived entirely of that liberty. Then he can drop the silly pose of superiority and take the opportunity to raise what objection he likes, as one really interested in getting to know; he can ask his questions in a spirit of friendly discussion, and listen when those whom he consults do their best to give a courteous, serious, and frank reply.”

Must have had false news in early 5th century.

Finished the book a second time in a small group men's Bible study. More useful the second time around, since the group discussion (based on questions included in the study guide in the book) tended to highlight what Packer was saying. Also, it becam ...more

As a whole the author was able to sustain a readable and enjoyable narrative style (of importance since the subject matter is well known). The most interesting proposition was the examination of the economic underpinnings of the German war machine, a ...more

Book was loaned to me by Jackson Walls, a good friend, but more to the point, who is widely read in the diplomatic history of World War I, both before and during the war. Sean McMeekin addresses the efforts of Wilhelmine Germany to incite jihad again ...more

Book as loaned to me by David Russell. How can God be on both sides of the same war of Christians? Overlooked is why the Christians were fighting at all.

A fine finish for Harold Bloom. Fun to read about the American authors and how he reads their works. Not sure he always adheres to his focus on the daemon and the American Sublime, but in any event his observations are compelling and themselves provo ...more

This is a must read for all Bible study teachers. Much easier to understand (more compelling and more persuasive) than God Without Parts: Divine Simplicity and the Metaphysics of God's Absoluteness by James E. Dolezal. Covers the same ground, more or ...more
