« on: August 03, 2013, 12:59:59 PM »
I must recommend the following interview and call in show, featuring Kevin Allen and his guest, Dr. Daniel Fanous:

Very enlightening! Two hours well spent.  :)
"This is the cross - to become dead to the whole world, to suffer sorrows, temptations and other passions of Christ; in bearing this cross with complete patience, we imitate Christ's passion and thus glorify our God the Father as His sons in grace and co-heirs of Christ." --St. Symeon the New Theologian

I also enjoyed this show with Dr. Daniel Fanous, and I plan to get a copy of his book "Taught by God: Making Sense of the Difficult Sayings of Jesus".  His answers to the questions during the show were convincing.

"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."

Same. His book has been bumped to the top of my Amazon wishlist.

I tried listening to it last night while I was otherwise engaged and didn't get much from it... I'll have to give it another go this week when I can focus just on it...

I have that book but I didn't read it yet. I expect it's going to be really good.
