      No such thing as Christian books son. Just you, Jesus, the Bible and a lot of ~~*Christian*~~ authors who pretend they're the bible 2.0, Jesus 2.0 or you 2.0.

      Try Agatha Christie. She had a way with words too. Not spectacular ways, but still ways. Just like Jesus 1.0.

        You will never be a real Pagan. you have no goats, you have no hammers, you have no clans. You are a delusional man twisted by atheism and satan into a mockery of Christ's perfection

        All the "worship" you do is two-faced and a farce. Behind your back people mock you. Your gods would be disgusted and ashamed of you, your "friends" laugh at your lackluster faith at Sunday school.

        Priests are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of theology have allowed man to sniff out heretics with incredible efficiency. Even Pagans who "are faithful" look bizarre and unnatural to Christians. Your body mass index is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a Christian to convert, he'll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a look at your moldy, stinky drinking horn collection.
        You will never be faithful. You wrench out a fake "Hail Odin" every single morning and tell yourself "I will awaken in Valhalla", but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.
        Eventually it'll be too much to bear - You'll buy a rosary, wear nice clothes, go to church and ask God for forgiveness of your sins. Your parents will find you, happy and relieved that their child has finally grown up and realized the truth. They'll embrace you with love and faith in God, and every angel for the rest of eternity will know another soul has been saved. Your hate will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your anger is a closeted skeleton that is finally buried.
        This is your fate. This is what you chose. And you will turn back.

      How's that book? Is it pretty good?

      • 6 months ago
        Anonymous

        Excellent. It's historical and christian, though not explicit, in many regards. As such it begins before middle-earth was created. It covers the first age and very briefly the second, which has a separate book. After the preface is a letter to his friend which states the story is "mainly concerned with Fall, Mortality, and the Machine." To add to this, he writes that the Fall "may become possessive, clinging to the things made as its own, the sub-creator wishes to be the Lord and God of his private creation. He will rebel against the laws of the Creator — especially against mortality. Both of these (alone or together) will lead to the desire for Power, for making the will more quickly effective, - and so to the Machine (or Magic)." It does read like a tragedy, for sin is plenty, but salvation does come in the end.

      OSB, BSB, get a better chart of the formal equivalence ones and pick from that.
      NASB takes a few "liberties" in the sense of purposefully changing some bits.

    Can anyone recommend fiction outside of usual, Lewis, Tolkien, Greene, Dostoyevsky, O'Conner, and Tolstoy, with Christian themes but isn't Left Behind type evangelicalism?

      Left Behind and rapture theology isn't even scriptural. It was made up by a guy who hit his head one day and somehow it got accepted as culturally authoritative.

        >somehow it got accepted as culturally authoritative.
        Not really. It was promoted in the media and given lots of media publicity by the zionist movement as yet another attempt to subvert Biblical Christianity. But despite that it flopped.

    They also have youtubes and podcasts.
    I have a soft spot for anything Bill Johnson since that was the beginning of my Christian journey. I was blessed to not get trapped in the mire of pedantic "you're a sinner, try to be a good person, wait until you're dead and go to heaven" theology.
    If you're going to watch sermons I recommend Joseph Prince. He is a great linguist and talks a lot about the reality of meanings in the original translations. I haven't read his books so sorry bout that anon. I should get on that myself haha.

    Psalms
    Life of Moses
    For me, reading Way of Perfection before Interior Castle was helpful.
    No one has said St John of the Cross yet, any recommendations or warnings?
    As a pair, Athanasius On the Incarnation and Basil On the Holy Spirit. Very foundational. The “coronation” language in the latter was also interesting in terms of the Rosary.
    +1 for Julian of Norwich. Good for mystery of the scourging, for Sacred Heart chaplet and just in general.
    Secret of the Rosary for hinting at extensibility.
    Meditations on the Tarot
    Father Brown mysteries, early ones where he is working on Flambeau. His bio of St Francis was recommended here and is another good one.

    The Old English poetic Genesis, Exodus, and Daniel. I was already interested in picking up Old English, but these poems put me over the edge. Here's an Excerpt from the Elder Genesis.

    >... So God ordained
    >In his endless imagination and sustaining strength
    >That he would shape a brave new world
    >Under heaven’s roof for creatures to come,
    >An expanse of air and earth, sea and sky,
    >A realm called paradise for a race of people
    >Who would take the place of the fallen angels,
    >Who rebelled against glory and were gathered up
    >And expelled into darkness, hurled in the abyss,
    >Where nothing existed in that unshaped space,
    >That untouched time. The void was desolate,
    >Dark and deep, empty and idle,
    >Fruitless and fallow, unmade, unmoving.
    >Resolute and righteous, God began to gaze
    >Into the empty clutch of unfolding creation,
    >Powering possibilities according to his plan.
    >That cheerless abyss of never-ending night
    >Was next to nothing till the mighty one made
    >A wondrous world from the dark wasteland
    >With his shaping word. The King of glory
    >First created heaven and earth, laying out the land,
    >Lifting up the sky. He was the boldest of builders,
    >Surest of shapers, Maker unmatched.
    >But the verdant sweep could not be seen—
    >The plains of earth were not green with grass,
    >The seas were not yet shimmering blue—
    >And blackness shrouded the curve of creation.
    >Then the bright spirit of heaven’s Keeper,
    >Our Shaper and Sustainer, arose endowing
    >Life over the deep, out of the abyss.
    >The bold Lord of angels, Bestower of life,
    >Commanded brightness born in the void,
    >And the light shone forth as God had said,
    >So his will was realized, his purpose fulfilled.
    >Then the Lord triumphant, our radiant Ruler,
    >Divided light from darkness over the waves,
    >Separating the space into radiance and shadow.
    >He called each force of creation forth
    >With his wondrous word, giving each its name.
    >The light he called “Day,” beautiful and bright,
    >And the Lord was pleased with his first day’s work.
    >His light created and constrained the shadow,
    >Sometimes defining or deepening the shade,
    >Sometimes dispelling it, driving it into darkness.
