Indeed. I have read and am willing to read A. W. Pink's writings (even as I have read and am willing to read other Calvinist's writings), and indeed it is accurate to indicate that A. W. Pink was a pr

Yes ma'am.

Thackery's Letters to an American Family, 1904. (with a really cool typeface and feel to the 112 year old pages)

Let's see: The Bible, in Zechariah in the mornings and Romans, with my wife, in the evenings. 'The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People', and 'Darwinism and Creation', a Christian outline of the flaws of Darwinism, and the supremacy of biblical creation, written back in the 50's. Don't recall the author off the top of my head.

America in Crimson Red by James Beller. Different textbooks for school (just LOVE Physical Science...hahaha). And, of course and always, the Bible. Right now, for school, we are looking at the prophecies of the coming Messiah as a prelude to His birth. So we are in various places in the OT. The girls' memory verse last week was Gen. 3:15. This week it's Is. 11. (one of the girls was quite disappointed last week when I told them we were going to take a break on the life of David until after the new year...she can't wait to find out what happens to him next. =D  But she's enjoying our study of the prophecies so far)

Musician4God1611 really did like Physical Science, probably the only student we had who wasn't ready to commit Seppuku (hara-kiri) over it.

I'm enjoying it, honestly. It's a review of what I learned in high school and college. My girls, however, are not. Especially the math part of it. I have to remind my niece that if she wants to be a nurse, she's going to have more math in higher sciences. She's thrilled. Not. =D

I like to read material from religious sects to see what makes them tick. I usually stick to sects that I come in contact with on occasion. JW's are the most prevalent in my area. So right now I am reading two publications from the Watchtower. One is: "The truth that leads to eternal life." And the other is "What the bible really teaches."

It is nothing short of amazing how tortured their teaching is, as well as their perversion of scripture, due to having to publish their own bible version to justify what they believe.

Their supposed "worship services" consist entirely of reading from the Watchtower publications, coupled with a "dog and pony show" where two people will present a skit about how to witness and talk to people.

Hey Mike,

 

I bought the audio book “the Seven Habits” I must have listened to those things a good twenty times.  My wife hated them because every time we traveled by car I listened to them over and over.  After all these years I still remember a few illustrations from the book and still use them occasionally.  The best one in my opinion is when Covey talks about climbing the ladder of success to the top and finding the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall.  What a great illustration for false religions and he being a Mormon.

Now I'm reading TM 9-1015-252-10, the Army Operator's tech manual for the M119A2 Light Towed Howitzer. Part of my job.

We have the audio as well. I have never finished either-kind of heard on my brain, not really the kind of book I prefer, but my wife really wants me to read it, so we're kind of opposite there; she thinks I can benefit from it in my work as a pastor.  I didn't realize he was a Mormon.

I just finished reading the book entitled Why Johnny Can't Sing Hymns by T. David Gordon.  It has the subtitle:  How Pop Culture Rewrote the Hymnal.

Excellent book. They interviewed the author on The White Horse Inn. It's probably archived online somewhere and well worth the effort to find. 

There are also two companion books: Why Johnny Can't Preach and another one, the name of which escapes me.

A.W. Pink - "Christian Fools"

Wayne Carver - "Chronology of the Crucifixion Week"

Pink is a Calvinist...if anyone wants to know.

Not sure about Carver...and don't care to find out.

LOL! No hatred whatsoever.

Let's see...

I don't see a bit of hatred in those words at all. I see information.

I'm simply just letting people know that Pink is a Calvinist. I've seen unknowing non-Calvinists receive Pink's books freely, because his books were "recommended and given to them" by others. I'm just letting people know what you're recommending (by default). If they want to read Pink's books, that's their prerogative...but at least now they know a little more than those whom I saw gladly accept his books like a kid on Christmas...because someone they trusted and respected gave the books to them.

You have accused others here of "hatred" for simply expressing an opinion different from yours. This tendency to label as "hatred" anything that  disagrees with the original premise reminds me of left leaning liberals in the secular world. In the liberal world everything that opposes the liberal's ideas and assertions is always labeled, "hatred." It's all a  part of the "political correctness" that is so prevalent in these times.
