im waiting for the chronicles of narnia to be shipped .. i ordered them online a while back .... me n assyrian_dude r plannin on readin all the books .. lol they're kinda long so we need some motivation .. so since we're both part of the bookclub, i thought it'd be fun to add that to our reading list ...

we're reading "the hobbit" right now, soon "the chronicles of narnia" .. and the "lord of the rings" trilogy ... n im gonna try to convince him to read "harry potter" .... good books, but ppl get turned off by them cuz they think they're childrens books...

The Gospels Interwoven by Kermiy Zarley

It's basically a chronological narrative of the life of Jesus interweaving details from the four Gospels.....

It lets you see Jesus in a different light..................As a kind, caring, forgiving, loving and not as a "police authority."

Throughout my life I was taught that  do wrong and get severely punished and to be scared.................BUT Jesus is much more than this...........God wants us to have a relationship with him and Assy. churches prevent U from doing that because they mold God into something harsh and un-relatable...........

After all we are made in the image of God
"May the Lord Bless You & continually fill your heart with His Love. May He give you victory in every trial you face.....As you are blessed of the Lord, may you become a blessing in return to all those who share your life."   Audrey Jeanne Roberts

He writes books!  Of course he's self-promoting.  That's like saying, 'that car salesman tries to sell cars just to make money'...no kidding!

I read Josh McDowell's book "God Wrote a Book".  It was a great read.  Short little book that gave some great information on the validity of Scripture for both young Christians, and those who may be more mature in the faith.

And as far as MacArthur, if you haven't read "Hard to Believe", you need to get that ASAP.  It was awesome.

I would have to say the bible! I haven't completely read the whole bible yet, but i read everything so far up to the Acts of the apostles! Im slowly reading the rest. The parts that interested me the most where:
-the old Genesis stories(Noah, Abraham, etc.) because its interesting to hear about life so long ago
-all the parts about the Assyrians/Babylonians!
-and the gospels because when I was reading some parts of the gospels, its like every problem or issue i was facing in my life Jesus would mention it as if he was talking directly to me!

Besides the bible, I think Shakespeare's Macbeth was really good!

Noam Chomsky is great.


He's great if you live in a vacuum and consider realpolitik a nothing but a joke of the cold war, and absolutely obsolete and outdated.  He's horrible, as a political spokesperson, if yo want to call him that, if you take into consideration human nature's desire to win and succeed, or history of war and empire.  

Here's a good one: why is noam, an 'enlightened' professor of speech communication at MIT so well known in the leftist political realm?  

To me he's nothing more than an intelligent Micheal Moron, with a snazzy Ph.D in whatever speech communication is or teaches, that makes a ton of money preaching to peaceniks and hippies because they dont bother to 'teach themselves' aobut the realities of globalization, political islam, and whatever else...oh yeah the 'American Empire'.  So you get this guy that knows how to articulate himself clearly and succintly, and he mindscrews all the naive youngens and leaves in his wake a plethora of ignoramous hippies and peaceniks with no grip on reality.  

I dont mean to sound harsh, but I will never speak highly of a man who condones and even supported Pol Pot and the Khemer Rouge.  Did you know that?

i cant really pick one book to be my fav. since i read a lot of interesting books in the last year thanks to one man, most of the books joe(Alchemist) recommended were absolutely amazing

right now im almost done with The Da Vinci Code, i started two days ago and i have about 100 pages left....this book is worse then cocaine i swear lol you get into it so much its not even funny

i've never done this with other books before  :blink: like i stay up till 6 am reading it till i cant keep my eyes open anymore  :ban:


anywho, last week i finally finished the hobbit (loved it) and today i bout the chronicles of narnia book set and hopefully i'll finish those before february. so t so i can go see the movie. i've been told that they are really good, so hopefully i'll enjoy them. but before i jump into these books, im really pushing myself to read angels and Demons by Dan Brown

lol way too many to name but..

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis... i love all seven books
The Giver by Lois Lowry
So long a Letter by Mariama Ba

Lately.. I want to read all 56 Sherlock Holmes adventures by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

wow .. i read that in gr6? maybe.. im not sure if it was gr5 and gr6 .. and just seeing the title brings back memories.. i forgot all about that book...... ooh and the outsiders as well...

i just saw this thread again.... and i've read a few books since i posted my favorites... n i still stand by what i wrote... a few books come close but not close enough to be on the same level...

'a fine balance' is still the best book i've read.

and for 'whatever', 1984 is a great book... i recently read 'animal farm' .. and i read part of 1984, but had to put it down to finish off a few other books.. i'll put up my review as soon as im done...

Guys I skipped over, but I wonder if anyone has read these two books: "Freakonomics" and "The World is Flat"

These two books are taking over the charts.

If anyone has read them, tell us about it please. Is it worth buying? I read a few reviews about them.

LOTR is awesome althoug the 3rd part as a little bit boring in the end.

Carol Edgarian - Rise of the Euphrates
Dan Brown - Da Vinci Cod and the Juvenalis Dilemma
Tonke Dragt - Brief voor de konging en Geheimen van het Wilde Woud
Sue Townsend - Adriaan Mole and all of his diaries :D.
Mike Gayle - Turning thirty
Mike Gayle - My legendary girlfriend

Tooooo much too name
I am an Assyrian today, tomorrow, forever, and I am proud of it.
