In My Own Words:
As a thinker, I'm a generalist. I am a Christian, and a graduate of the school of hard knocks. Books have held an appeal for me since high school.
When one looks at the vast realm of knowledge, an intense feeling of discouragement can settle in. Sometimes we do not know where to turn or what to do; but if it is any comfort to you, consider that there is nothing new that people going be… Read more

The Everything History Of The Bible Book: From Div&hellip by Jeffery Donley
5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction, April 28 2010

As soon as I picked up this book, I saw that it contained a chapter titled:

Exploring the "Da Vinci Code" and it debunks many of the falsifications and error's in Brown's popular novel, which was offered as a "historical fiction".

This is an excellent book, which clarifies the precision of the Biblical text, its languages, geography, its revealed nature, its history, and how it has been interpreted.

The author, Jeffrey Donley, holds four Masters Degrees.

Like all of the EVERYTHING series of books, this one does not consist of endless pages of tiny text.
It is spaciously laid out, and contains fascinating… Read more

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Pre-Algebra by Amy F. Szczepanski Ph.D.

"TCIGT Pre-Algebra" by author Amy Szczepanski, Ph. D
and Andrew Kositsky

This is a warmly written book in which the author's love of their subject shines through.

For myself, I'm not much of a mathematician, but I do have a fondness for the laws, principles and the beautiful equations which are so derived.

I sat in the bookstore, scanning a dozen new books on Math, Algebra, Geometry and so on, and ended up picking several to buy. This was my immediate favorite. Buying some blank 3 x 5 cards, I quickly began working through the book's lessons on LEAST COMMON MULTIPLES and so on.

It may sound trite, but the book is easy to read,… Read more
Sacred Geometry: Deciphering the Code by Stephen Skinner

5.0 out of 5 stars Ancient Geometry, April 26 2010

Sacred Geometry by Stephen Skinner

This is the best of all the books on the subject. The extant texts were becoming dated and a new book was long overdue.

It consists of 160 pages, and about 1/5 to 1/3 of each and every page is illustrated, and most are color illustrations. The author devotes about 2 to 5 pages to each subject. The author indicates that GEOMETRY is considered sacred because it shows the ARCHETYPAL patterning of things. This carries over into the realms of Architecture, Mathematics, Conceptual Abstractions and of course, NATURE.

The author begins with the Greeks of course, and continues on into the Middle Ages, where the basic… Read more
