the concept of an epistemological ascent to God driven by a life of virtue

It is 12:40 PM Tuesday afternoon in the death flow. It is a cold sunny day.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got woke up by Carol getting dressed. Her plans was to go grocery shopping early. I was up as she was leaving. After Carol left I got a glass of cold water and sat waking up to the first day of the new month. What does the month of December hold for us? Once I woke up I got a cup of coffee and messed with our main computer. Next I took pictures of my December Paper Diary and posted them. I do not remember right now reading anything. I read from these books last night before going to bed-

'The First Thousand Years: A Global History of Christianity' by Robert Louis Wilken

'God Has Spoken: A History of Christian Theology' by Gerald Bray

'A Path of Christianity: The First Thousand Years' by John Anthony McGuckin

When Carol got back from grocery shopping we left to do errands and visit thrift stores. I was not going to visit any thrift stores till the COVID-19 was history, but I felt a need to get some used books/satisfy my cravings for old used books. I found these used books today to ADD to our library-
