Popes & Bankers

The sub-title to this book is: “A cultural history of credit & debt, from Aristotle to AIG.”  I was given this book by a friend and I found it quite interesting.  I think everyone ought to read something in this field once in a while.  Cashill starts off explaining the laws of usury in the […]

William Holmes McGuffey and His Readers

I have a special interest in William McGuffey because I (and my siblings) spent eight years in the McGuffey elementary school in Oxford, Ohio.  The School is located on the campus of Miami University where my father was a professor from 1955 to 1985.  McGuffey taught at Miami from 1826 to 1836 in the field […]

Day by Day with Jonathan Edwards

One reading habit I have tried to maintain is to read through a “daily” reading book each year.  This is the second book in this series that I’ve read and have enjoyed them both (the first being the Early Church Fathers).  Jonathan Edwards may be hard enough for someone to read, especially from his theology […]

This is the second “novel” I’ve read by Joel Rosenberg.  He is the author who wrote The Last Jihad which depicted Islamic terrorists crashing airliners into US buildings, but written before 9/11.  With that notoriety he has written a series of biblically oriented books depicting last days scenarios.  I read The Ezekiel Option which gave […]

While there were interesting tidbits, a common theme of the book seemed to rotate around one curious idea, that the plague produced the mindset for modern medical science. Why, […]

The Cherokee Trail

Older Novels My son-in-law gave me my first Louis L’Amour book, The Cherokee Trail which was historical and rather good.  It is a western, of course, but it deals with the history around Ft. Collins, CO where I pastored for 18 years.  I didn’t know if I would like L’Amour but I did and will read some […]

The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come

Older Novels Two books by Harold Bell Wright were Their Yesterdays, the most philosophical of his books yet, and The Winning of Barbara Worth, the most interesting yet.  I read The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come by John Fox, Jr. since I saw it constantly at used book stores, and enjoyed it.  My son-in-law gave me my first Louis […]
