Note to Self: Keep Reading

  It's been some time since I have been able to post about my Biblical journey. I have a book problem. You see I'm the type of guy that loves books. I can't walk into a book store, or Costco with out buying something new. I am now reading six Different Bibles, including a children's picture version. I'm using the picture book as a way help visualize the stories. Throw in one or two companion books for reference material and now I'm looking for a bigger study area. I also purchased the starter package from Logos Bible study software, to as they say "seal the deal." I've halted my reading at Genesis 35. Spending the last two weeks reading all the other materials and Bibles to catch up. I want to be in alignment with all the books so I can learn something from one that I might have missed in another.

 Here's my reading list:
  • The Illustrated Bible Story by Story
  • Sparkling Gems from the Greeks. 365 Greek Word Studies For Every Day of the Year To Sharpen Your Understanding of God's Word  by Rick Renner

  1. JOHN!! So nice to see you post today!

    Have you read any of C.S. Lewis's work? I don't mean his Narnia books, but for example, MERE CHRISTIANITY, SURPRISED BY JOY? He is a great companion to have on this journey of life as we read the scriptures. Both an academic and lover of Christ, C.S. Lewis has always brought the higher concepts back down to earth for me to remind me that I am not alone.
