We of Little Faith I Stopped Pretending to Believe (and Maybe You Should Too) By Kate Cohen. I just finished this book, and I found myself nodding my head a lot at the many subjects the author tackles in each chapter. I highly recommend this ...

VALIS again, about forty years after my first time around. PKD's Exegesis extensively excerpted. An explication of an elaborate cosmology, or is it a cosmogony, that isn't true. Insanity recollected in a state of sanity? Maybe. But having an ...

Coming to the end of Marilynne Robinson's Home. I might have said this before, but I'll say it again. The black sheep—or maybe the white sheep—of a family may see Jack Boughton in him/herself, or him/herself in Jack Boughton. But the difference...

Marilynne Robinson's Gilead on the table. Written before Jack, but its events coming afterward. Interesting to a non-believer that the literary artefacts of a worldview foreign to one's own—as in, some religious people, including at least one ...

I enjoyed "The Dictionary of Lost Words", a historical fiction about the creating of the Oxford-English Dictionary and the fight for women's suffrage in the UK.

Anyone else fascinated by Mary Magdalene? I always have been, and especially since texts have been discovered which are purported to be gospels according to Mary. While I'm not convinced there was a real historical Jesus, it's fascinating for me to...

A highly biased selection. Ely S. Parker is a significant but little known person in American History, and he is one of my ancestors ( I have many notable Haudenosaunee ancestors which is not too surprising since they are all related to each other). ...

I read this back in 2018. Absolutely loved it. It is an oddly small sized book, so it is good to travel with.

A short Sci-Fi that is quite good even though it will only take about an hour to read. It is also kinda cheap.

Looking again at this book reminds me that I wanted to re-listen to it again. It is that good and instructive of our Nation's procedural institutions. The author's engaging dialogue is highlight of what ordinarily a dull subject.

At Home: a short history of private life by Bill Bryson. An enjoyable book about everyday things we don't even think about.

I read this back in about 1983. Phenomenal book! Chapters alternate between a Sci-Fi story of an Ark spaceship and the problems that occur on their journey, and the earth-bound science behind the problem.

This is one of my very most favorite books. In fact, I even bought a hard copy after listening to the audiobook so I could go over it in more detail. I have studied evolution for awhile, and even taught it some, but this book united some thoughts I ...

Marilynne Robinson's Jack hits close to the bone, maybe even too close. Don't know that one has found one's Della. Don't know that one ever will. Robinson's a rather cogent thinker for a Christian. But there is the rub. I may well read her other ...

The Town and the City. Published the year one “John” Kerouac—the name it appeared —was twenty-eight, seven years before On the Road made him famous. You could compare it to Mailer's The Naked and the Dead. With both books, it is ...
