August reading

Continuing with my trend of regaling you with some (or all, in a couple of previous posts) of the several books i’m reading at once (or over the course of a month), i give you my ‘current’ list…

Recently read:

EMERALD DECISION – Craig Thomas (war fiction)

The COURTESAN – Julia Justiss (romance?)

The DEAD SEA SCROLLS DECEPTION – Baigent & Leigh

The GRAIL CONSPIRACY – Lynn Sholes & Joe Moore (mystery)

When You Ride ALONE You Ride with Bin Laden – Bill Maher (humour/political satire)

ZERO – Eric Van Lustbader (spy fiction)

Just finished:

OBLIVION – Peter Abrahams (fiction)

The POCKET GUIDE to BRILLIANCE – Bart King (humour/reference)

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to The KORAN – Sarwar & Toropov

Currently reading:

LORDS of FINANCE: the Bankers Who Broke the World (1914-1933) – Liaquat Ahmed

The LOST APOSTLE: Searching for the Truth About Jania – Rena Pederson

The EAGLE and the RAVEN – Pauline Gedge (historical fiction)

On Deck (in the pipe to be read next):

The IMMORTALITY FACTOR – Ben Bova (Sci-fi)

MIDWINTER – Matthew Sturges (fantasy)

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to The GNOSTIC GOSPELS – J. Michael Matkin

GOD’S SECRETARIES: The Making of the King James Bible – Adam Nicholson

The ILLUSTRATED PRINCIPLES OF POOL and BILLIARDS – David G. Alciatore, PhD

The BIBLE in TRANSLATION: Ancient and English Versions – Bruce M. Metzger

WHO WROTE the NEW TESTAMENT?: The Making of a Christian Myth – Burton L. Mack

The MAGICIAN’S APPRENTICE – Trudi Canavan (fantasy)

This is in addition to reading the local free daily papers in my city, the odd ‘bathroom’ Reader’s Digest ™ and The Epoch Times* every week (*which i recommend to ALL of you with any interest in real world events – and tons of other great articles too).

I now need to decide which 2 or 3 of the “on deck” books i will start on tonight (or soon), and which to save until i finish one or more of the others. Any suggestions?

  2. Gnostic history/theology has always blown me away. We were so close from being “Gnostic” Christians….we’ll I mean, if your christian that is….but man, that would of changed our world.
