Fall Reading

     Melissa gave me a new book for Christmas, Truckers (Bromeliad Trilogy Book 1) by Terry Pratchett.  John/Lisa also gave me Out of Africa, by Karen Blixen, nom de plume Isak Dinesen . I'm excited to read through some non-academic writing.
     I've been buried in various books and articles for the semester.  My reading for school included many tomes.  One of my favorite was the masterful volume, The Voyage and Shipwreck of St. Paul by James Smith.  There were many others, such as St. Paul the Traveler and Roman Citizen, by William M. Ramsay. Backgrounds of Early Christianity by Everett Ferguson. Paul: A Guide for the Perplexed by Timothy G. Gombis.  Ships and Seamanship in the Ancient World by Lionel Casson. Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind by Tremper Longman
     Included in my reading for school was a slew of reading for a theoretical thesis proposal, Image, Identity, and the Forming of the Augustinian Soul by Matthew Drever, Perception, Sensibility, and Moral Motivation in Augustine, by . Sarah Catherine Byers, a host of material from James K. A. Smith, including Desiring the Kingdom, and Imagining the Kingdom.  A few books on how to write, such as, The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods by A.G. Sertillanges. and Stylish Academic Writing by Helen Sword.  There were others, though they escape me now.
