Day 23

(Full list.)

A Picture of Your Favorite Book

So, when I read that, the following song popped into my head:  "B-I-B-L-E! Yes, that's the book for me..."
That's actually including the "...", because my childhood church didn't have Sunday school to teach me said song.   I probably learned the few lyrics I know from osmosis during my time at Pine Cove.

I have some other faves, as well (in no particular order):

On the Christian Life

The Divine Conspiracy stands out to me because it is an intellectual book about Christianity.  There are not a lot of modern books that reach my heart and my mind.

Favorite quote:
"Can we seriously imagine that Jesus could be Lord if he were not smart? If he were divine, would he be dumb? Or uninformed? Once you stop to think about it, how could he be what we take him to be in all other respects and not be the best-informed and most intelligent person of all, the smartest person who ever lived?... 'Jesus is Lord' can mean little in practice for anyone who has to hesitate before saying, 'Jesus is smart.' He is not just nice, he is brilliant... He always has the best information on everything and certainly also on the things that matter most in human life."


Douglas Adams is a comedic genius.  He's also a little crude, so don't read it if you're sensitive to that.  And, promise me that you will never, ever under any circumstances watch the movie.  It will ruin everything.  Just take my word for it.  The best things about the book are lost when converted to cinematic form.


Ah-may-zing.  Genius.  Thought-provoking.
It's a collection of short stories that I've really enjoyed.  "There Will Come Soft Rains" is probably the most famous story, and, coincidentally, a very common prose piece in high school forensics.  But, that's besides the point.  This is one of my favorites.  The end.

P.S.  Mom, I have proudly put on my nerd glasses to bring you this post, thank-you-very-much.


  1. "...I stand alone on the Word of God. The B-I-B-L-E!"

  2. That's such a good classic kid's song.
    It's always neat to see what books your friends really enjoy. :) My reading list is made of of mostly suggestions from friends and friend's favorite books.
    Thanks for following my blog, Lauren!
