    I did not read the books in order. Some people like to do that but I do not think it is necessary.
    Enjoy them, I could not put them down.

    • Thanks.

      • The Great Quake. It's about the 1964 Alaska earthquake, which is supposed to be the biggest quake ever recorded in North America....about 9.2.


        Take one and pass it on!

        • I just finished Francine River's book 'Redeeming Love'. I tried to read it 15 years ago but couldn't get past the first few chapters...probably because of painful childhood memories.
          I found it at a thrift store for a dollar and decided to give it a try again. I'm so glad I did. Much of the book was just so 'raw' and the story in and of itself demonstrates how God never seizes to show grace and love.
          He is my Redeemer and I'm so thankful that He's never given up on me.

          • I borrowed "Without Warning" by Joel Rosenberg in e-book format from our library. For me anyway, this is by far the best he's written. I give him 5 stars for this book.

            He does fall short in the description of what might happen with the diesel engined Mercedes. Diesel fuel does not have the same properties as gasoline, and while it'll burn, it is not explosive. My faults with Rosenberg in the past has been that he hasn't done enough research to mimic reality in his writing, and that is necessary for a top notch fiction writer. My knowledge of intelligence methods has made some of his books less than stellar for me, but this one has me hooked. Finished it! I didn't find the finish very believable but that didn't spoil the enjoyment I had reading the book.

            • Lectures on the Epistle of Paul to the Colosians, 1867, William Kelly The book includes Mr. Kelly's useful English translation of Colossians.

              William Kelly (1820 - 1906) was a highly regarded scholar and expositor of Scripture writing on almost every book of the Bible but also serving as editor of, "The Collected Writings of J.N. Darby" (34 vols). He also translated Mr. Darby's, "Synopsis of the Books of the Bible" from Darby's original French into English. Mr. Kelly published the monthly periodical, "The Bible Treasury" from 1856 until his decease. He wrote extensively on prophetic themes from a premillinial pretribulational standing. Mr. Kelly's writings have been kept in print over the last 150 years as testimony to the quality of his teaching.

              • Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History, by Suzanne Humphries, MD and Roman Bystrianyk.

                Borrowing this from an amazon review - because I couldn't put it into words any better: "If you are interested in a fact-based, well-cited, candid discussion of the history of infectious disease and medical trends in the past few centuries, and the current scientific issues involving vaccines, immunology, and nutrition, then this book is for you. 479 pages of content, with footnotes of scholarly historical and scientific sources from the 18th, 19th, 20th, and/or 21st centuries on nearly every page. I tried to read it with scrutiny, and I was impressed. I don't recommend this book if you are uncomfortable with questioning the status quo, because after reading the facts in this work I don't think you'll have much choice."

                There are a host of issues children today are dealing with that prior generations hadn't. Including my own generation. Where as I was "fully vaxxed" with about 16 doses (and prior generations had even less) kids today are at...72. ..and unless you've stayed up-to-date with all of your adult ones your childhood ones are most likely expired by this point in your life.

                It doesn't matter what side of the fence you fall on, be informed. Science isn't a hard stop, it continues to grow/change/evolve and it should always be questioned (especially when us imperfect people are involved).

                  • I recently read 'Hitler's Children' by Gerald Posner. It was one of those pop-ups on my Paperwhite.
                    It contains in-depth interviews by the children of Hitler's henchmen, and how their father's actions affected their lives. All of the contributors had to agree to speak under their real names, and agree that they could not edit their comments.
                    It was a very interesting reality check, and a format I have not seen before.

                    Recommend highly if you are interested in the subject...

                    • Ernie Pyle "Last Chapter" chronicling his experiences with the fighting men in the Pacific theater of WW2. At some point he is killed by a Japanese sniper.

                      His previous book "Brave Men" I enjoyed as well. It concerned the European theater of war.
                      He has others as well. I plan to buy his book on the London blitz in the future.

                      • Leaves from the Book, by F. W. Grant published by Loixeaux Brothers Bible Truth Depo, New York. There is a gift inscription on the forward flyleaf singed by Mr. C. Crane, dated: Dec. 7, 1921. This book of 413 pages is a collections of 25 Bible Studies. The book is currently out of print.

                        The inscription reads: "A little water drawn from the river of the Water of Life. May God's rich blessing ever rest upon you. C. Crane"

                        Fredrick W. Grant, 1834 - 1902 was a well respected Bible Expositor and author best know for his work, "The Numerical Bible"; which is still in print. A Baptist Pastor I know has some of Mr. Grant's books in his collection.

                        Mr. Crane was also a respected Bible teacher who maintained fellowship with Mr. Grant. His book, "Readings on the Epistle to the Romans" is a very good commentary.

                        • I'm on the second to last book in the Chronicles of Kings Series, by Lynn Austin. In historical fiction form, it chronicles the rule of King Ahaz, Hezekiah, Manasseh, and I don't know yet if it will include King Josiah's reign. After I finish the series, I'll put a bookmark where I'm reading from the Bible at the moment, and visit the scripture relating to the era of these Kings in the Old Testament.

                          Also, I'm having my first audio book experience with the Tides of Truth Series by Robert Whitlow. I discovered I could go jogging in the building that has our local ice skating arena (mandatory for towns in the far north). I jog a few times a week and since I temporarily ran out of sermons and Jan Markell shows to listen to I'm trying the audio book, and it's been great. I get so in to the stories that I can't always just stop listening after the jog is over... which means I'll have to find more and more audio books that our local library has access to.

                          I consider both of the above series to be excelllent Christian fiction and could recommend anything those two authors publish.

                                My mom and dad both read this right before my dad died from prostate cancer. I think this book helped them both.
