Paul Knitter's Without Buddha I Could Not Be Christian
Joseph Pieper The End of Time
Trevor Jalland The Church and the Papacy
Mike Cernovich Gorilla Mindset
John Duckett HTML and CSS

So far all are interesting, and by far the most difficult is the Josef Pieper one. It's dense, short but very dense. It's making me think though.
Walk before God in simplicity, and not in subtleties of the mind. Simplicity brings faith; but subtle and intricate speculations bring conceit; and conceit brings withdrawal from God. -Saint Isaac of Syria, Directions on Spiritual Training


"It is impossible in human terms to exaggerate the importance of being in a church or chapel before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. I very seldom repeat what I say. Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity. "Father John Hardon

I'm trying to read about a chapter a day of a few books, maybe not a standard method, but these are the books:
Summa Theologiae Prima Pars, History Philosophy Volume II, Nicomachean Ethics.

Hard to read them, but if I was more knowledgeable on Theology and Philosophy I wouldn't have to do it, I just want to get the basics.

I'm flipping between The Gospel of Luke and The Essentials of Conservation Biology.

I decided to pass that Mother Angelica book along to my mom. I'm going to finish up the Gospel According to St. John.

Studies In Matthew by Ulrich Luz

Besides the Bible and devotional stuff I'm also reading (or re-reading, in the case of LOTR):







Recently I started reading these but don't know how long I'll continue them for:






And I'm hoping to pick this one up again and continue reading it, since it's such a massive work:

"The problem with you sir, is that your intelligence enables you to evaluate people critically and when you evaluate people critically, you bring danger upon yourself."   -Lao Tzu

"And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: [...] creeping things [...] of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so." -Genesis 1:24 (RSV:CE)

                                                                    Moscow 1812 :Napoleon's Fatal March by Adam Zamoyski. Excellent so far and the more I read of this campaign the more of an understanding I get of the ringing church bells in Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture and how they proclaim the victory of Orthodox Christian Russia over anti-clerical, secular France.
