Today I finished reading Unleash Your Buddha Nature which is a good intro, sort of a Buddhism 101. Good book, I enjoyed it and found it informative. I started another book Uncontrolling Love: Essays Exploring the Love of God, with introductions by Thomas Jay Oord.
Looks like I neglected this site for a while ! Not so with my tumbr though ! I can never make up my mind which I prefer….
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Understanding Mormonism
|So far this book only rates two stars. When comparing Mormon ideas with mainstream Christian ideas the Author is is greatly oversimplifying the Christian ideas. I don’t know a lot about Mormonism but I suspect he is over simplifying their ideas as well. I also found a factual error where he referred to Constantine as the “Holy Roman Empire” ! In actual fact the Holy Roman Empire did not exist at the time of Constantine, it came much later and was located mostly in modern day Germany. Criticism aside, the book is interesting, very readable and I do intend to finish it.|

I saw this on facebook this morning….
“Family values” is more than a political slogan. It’s a core feature in the identity of conservative evangelicals born from a response to the 1960s counterculture. Art Remillard talks with Seth Dowland about his new book, Family Values and the Rise of the Christian Right. Dowland is assistant professor of religion at Pacific Lutheran University
