#21 Left Behind

I finished the book "Left Behind" by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins last night.  It's a book depicting Bible prophecy from a Pre-Trib, Pre-Millennial viewpoint, using a fictional format.  I actually thought it was very well done.  I'm trying to decide if I want to go on and continue with the series right now, or wait for a little bit and read things in-between   Something tells me that reading them in order and one after the other might be a better way of seeing the big picture.

My Journey Beyond Being Catholic

I was sitting still most of the morning so I read quite a bit of the time.  It gave me the chance to read this quick book on one woman's conversion from Catholicism to Evangelical called "My Journey Beyond Being Catholic" by Connie Limmex
I was thinking it would be more about her search and research into the two.  As I've been through a major conversion myself in my life, and I studied long and hard beforehand, I figured that was what it was about.  I found it to be much more about her life both before and after, and not much about her conversion itself.  It was still interesting.
It was full of joy and the love of God; a wonderful change of pace after the book I finished yesterday.

Book Number 19

Not sure what to say about this book.  It was interesting, but horrifying at the same time.

Book 18

Last night I finished "Evangelism And The Sovereignty Of God" by JI Packer.  It was an excellent book, not only covering the reasons for evangelization, but also what it should and shouldn't be.  It was a great book for both the Calvinist and Arminian alike.
