    In the past one of my favorite books on the subject was called 'Critiques Of God' it was kind of a complilation of different arguements by different people.

    I'm leading a group through a little book entitled "Good Grief" by Granger Westburg. He died recently but wrote this in the early 60's before even Kubler-Ross, I believe. It talks about how broad grief is and how people are often effected by it.

    I am about to read the Gospel of Mark straight through a few times. I serve in a church which follows a three year lectionary of readings (RCL). Starting the first Sunday in Advent, 11/30 this year I think, we will be reading mostly in Mark. I always try to sit down before the start of the year and read the whole Gospel for that year straight through a few times to get that language in my head. Not so much to remind myself of what it says but to eliminate what I think it says, or what I may bring from the other three. That way I can hear the story from that one perspective and try and see internal connections better.

    The Secret Books of the Egyptian Gnostics by Dorresse. Very good summation of the various gnostic sects, the history and general philosophy of Gnosticism.

    Currently I am reading two separate books about "the faiths of the founding fathers" (which is the actual title of one of the books). Plus I am also reading through a book called "Religion and Politics in America." The reading is slow right now though because of my busy schedule.

    Oh yeah I forgot I am also looking through Jefferson's version of the Bible.

    About a hundred years ago to celebrate some Jeffersonian anniversary, the Library of Congress produced 5000 copies of the Jefferson Bible using the then brand new process of photo-offset printing. They were given as gifts to congressmen, etc. When I was on internship in DC back in the early 80's a daughter of one of those congressmen gave me her Dad's copy. It is the most treasured item I have in my Bible collection.

    Without a doubt. :yes:

    That's an awesome story Ohio but I can't believe someone would give away a treasure like that away especially a United States politician. I would feel honored much in the same way you do to have such a possession and would never give it up. :yes:
