The Moral Vision of the New Testament by Richard B. Hays

You can recognize some obvious themes and threads... There are others, but I'll list those after I finally get them finished... I DO finish books, some more quickly than others, but I find myself picking up a few new ones - sometimes because they've been recommended by an author I'm currently reading.

I've got quite a back log. I caught up on Craig Johnson's Longmire series. I started reading Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon books. Just finished the Kill Artist and started the English Assassin. Off and on I'm reading How the Scot's Invented the Modern World by Arthur Herman. Struggling with the sequel to A Mote in God's Eye, The Gripping Hand. Waiting for David Berlinski's The Devil's Delusion and there's a bunch of others in the queue. Whew.

“Reality is Not What it Seems” by Carlo Rovelli. (Author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics”.)
This one focuses on quantum gravity.
Rovelli is a serious scientist who writes for the layman. Born in Italy, he lives in France and has a US citizenship.
His books might just change how you view the universe.

A good read.  I'd love to try one of his guitars.  The process he describes is very interesting

The Road to Serfdom by F.A. Hayek
Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians: Finding Authentic Faith in a Forgotten Age with C. S. Lewis by Chris R. Armstrong


Haven't finished the above four yet, but I've added several others. It's interesting to read a few books (5-7?) at a time: you notice common themes, relationships, crossover commentary and interpretation. Keeps my brain working...

...here are some others currently in rotation:

God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway? by John Lennox (a brilliant British mathematician)
The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions by David Berlinski
The Road to Serfdom: Text and Documents - The Definitive Edition by F.A. Hayek

Interesting to read Lennox's critique of Hawking, as Hawking just died recently. Brilliant as Hawking was as a scientist, his attempt at philosophy is garbled, and not convincing, as Lennox shows.

Berlinski's book, critical of Darwin and Darwinism (run amok in our culture today, despite so much advanced scientific data that shows that macro-evolution is not scientifically possible) is also excellent, although he's an interesting read - sometimes his lines of reasoning assume you know things he knows, or you get his obscure humor. Still, a great book.

Still in the forward to The Road to Serfdom, but this one's a classic, and I'm looking forward to getting into it.

I started Hayek last year and got bogged down. He was preaching to the converted as far as I was concerned anyway.  

I see where Tom Wolfe has passed away. Always a good read.
