Must-Reads for Modern Fiction & Non-Fiction — 2 Comments

  1. Hello,
    I was drawn to your site and wanted to share an experience with you that inspired me to write a book about it. I think you might resonate with it.
    I'd like to send you a complementary copy, if you were interested.
    Kindly,
    Elizabeth

    I saw your list….some great books are listed there! The God Delusion I have and loved. Also, like you I became atheist after reading the bible. Thanks for sharing Jae…;-)

    Appreciate the input, Sandi. Wasn't aware of your transition to the "Dark side" –lol. There are way more of us than people realize. Most just aren't courageous enough to say so. Rather like being gay, huh? (Thanks for your courage).

    I'm also very impressed with your list Jae! I would love to read "The Greatest Stories Never Told' next…
    What Sandi said was also true of myself – I became an atheist after reading all 66 books of the bible. I am also 'out of the closet' in that respect, also alienating some old friends in the process…

    Thanks so much, Bri. I know it's SO HARD for some people to let go of that. Most of the time, it's easier to just keep things status quo. But I'm so big on honesty-especially with myself first, because that's where it starts, always–I had to go on that journey and be clear what i did and did not believe. I saw a painted sign in COlorado Springs … Read Morewhen i was making a storage trip-it was the usual fare "give yourself over to God, with a scripture–and i had this fantasy of Splashing red paint on it and then writing over it "Your God is too bloodthirsty for me." Jae 3:13.

    You're right on Jae! I must get YOUR bible of life – I believe it would be much more interesting reading that those old stories of fantasies and tall tales. It's also ironic how down here in the 'South' they profess a 'guns and bible' mind set.
    Many republican's are only concerned with themselves and to hell with everyone else. REAL so-called Christians could NEVER be republicans because they condone racism, greed and hatred. Me, I just try to be a good person…

    Jae, I'm a Christian and I'm a yellow dog Democrat. My son is a Dem and he is training for the ministry. He is against the death penalty, war and believes guns are crazy.

    Hey, it takes all kids, doesn't it guys? I just wish everyone would stop being hypocrites, professing to be what they are not, or living a lie all the time. I believe in reason and science and love and honesty and education and truth… the trick is to find your own truth, whatever that may be, and live it.
