Book Recommendation

Thanks to a late-night babysitting engagement last night, I finally finished The Answers Book!  So now I have the happy job of writing my two-cents about it.

Over all, it was an amazing book.  Some of the science was a little over my head but even with that, I could still gain the point of each chapter.  I wasn’t even aware of some of the ridiculous arguments people make against the Bible.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to use the information in this book to be better informed and to better articulate and defend the accuracy of the Bible.

I loved the chapter on the dinosaurs.  I laughed at the chapter entitled:  “Could God Really Have Created Everything in Six Days.”  Well, duh, he IS GOD!!

Anyway, it was a great book and would benefit anyone who reads it!

Dreams Come True- at the Library

Random Fact: We went to the library today.  Everyone knows that libraries are magical places filled with wonderful things,  aka…books.  And we all love books. We used to take a laundry basket to carry all of our books in until all of our baskets broke. Now we just have a regular basket.  It’s fun to go to the library because a couple of the librarians groan when they see us walk in.

Another Random Fact: I love David McCullough. I’ve read 1776, John Adams, Truman, and Mornings on Horseback. I like the reliability of his facts and the interesting way he presents them.

So, I told you all that in order to tell you that I found a golden treasure today at the library. They got a new book-

The illustrated edition of 1776!  It is huge and comes with replicas of original documents, letters, and maps in pockets on the inside!   It costs about $60 and I can read it for free!  I ran to Caroline to tell her the amazing news and she gave me a funny look. Obviously not a history fanatic.

 

Needless to say, my day was made.
