Eh. When a church is 'inherited', ripping out the pews (and replacing them with chairs and stasidia) and organ can be too much of a bother and/or expense.

 Our church did it in a few hours.  Smiley

In addition to the book on the Jesus Prayer, I just picked up

 1. R. E. Lee by Douglas Southall Freeman.  It's supposedly the definitive single-volume biography out there.

 2. American Sphinx- The Character of Thomas Jefferson by Joseph J. Ellis.  If David McCullough likes it, it should be good.

 3. The Life of Johnny Reb- The Common Soldier of the Confederacy by Bell Irvin Wiley.  He's also got a companion book about the common Union soldier that I'd like to get sometime.

A nice manual-style book on shamanism published by the university of Oklahoma. Although I also leafed through Eliade's book on the subject it seems dated.

Courtesy of the 'damaged stock' shelf of my local independent bookstore, an omnibus edition of Diamond Brothers adventures no 4-7, by Anthony Horowitz (The Blurred Man, The French Confection, I Know What You Did Last Wednesday, The Greek Who Stole Christmas). Much giggling is ensuing already.

Interesting. I'm currently reading a 900 page tome entitled: "The Monk, the Forest, and Nathan Bedford Forrest."

OK, not really. My silliness comes out after Pascha. Sorry. Wink

I am not saying I want to stop. I love Arabic, it's one of my passions. It may be hard, but it is rewarding. I guess I just need to be a bit more disciplined and focused. I knew very well learning Classical Arabic (especially outside a classroom setting) would be difficult. When I start to university I'll get an opportunity to study the language in a more structured environment.

Impressive. A few months ago I was allowed to follow an entire semester on Plato. Before students of classical languages I had to translate parts of the Symposium on the spot. Great fun.

(30% of POWs in Japanese hands died as compared to only 1% dying under the Nazis.)  He managed to find peace and forgiveness through becoming a Christian.

I just started Devil at My Heels by Louis Zamperini.  Costco special, purchased along with Antony Beevor's The Second World War.  I liked his book Stalingrad.  May be awhile before I get to it. +-632

That last part was the cat's input on the topic.

Just finished Mark Mazower's Inside Hitler's Greece which was a good read.  Then started The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History by John M. Barry.  It is really interesting, but I got sidetracked and will have to go back.


Other than that, the third in the series of Spiritual Counsels by Elder Paisios Spiritual Struggle.

Then a bunch of technical gobbledy-gook for work, which I actually sometimes really enjoy.

i have been more inclined reading much more clear works than sophism.

i dont know, i dont claim to be intellectual or anything but some of these works are just so wide open with interpretation i feel like they are written by some smug ***hole for an academic elite to masturbate to.

is foucault and deleuze like completely open to interpretation here? i guess i like my thesis to be crystal clear and to see if i agree or disagree.

With a lot of philosophy, simple propositions that one can take or leave are often beside the point.
yeah unless you are feeding some kind of bs enabler.

im sorry but there are plenty ways of being literary, thought provoking and funny without being purposely opaque

ive been reading more poetry these days, you should be happy

Rebels, Traitors and Turncoats of London, by Travis Elborough. In the same vein as the Horrible Histories series, and as much fun.
