Reading Update 11-10-4

     I started reading Is There Meaning in This Text?: The Bible, the Reader, and the Morality of Literary Knowledge by Kevin Vanhoozer. It's a pretty heavy book, very technical and full of the latest philosophy. Very good read though. It seems to be a good sucessor to the Gagging of God by D.A. Carson.      Finally finished reading The story of civilization: Louis XIV. It was great. And that along with Jonathan Edwards has given me some fun stuff to think about, and new stuff to ponder.

"nunc stans" ~ Thomas Aquinas
"Semper idem sentire idem est ac nihil sentire" Always to feel the same thing is to feel nothing - Hobbes Ratiocination
