I have read several times over the years from the two volume work "The Mystical Evolution" by Arintero. I do not agree with everything Arintero writes about the Christian life/Roman Catholic theology, but he is worth reading. I am a conservative evangelical Christian and not a Roman Catholic. I also should add I do not agree with everything taught by Protestants/the French Reformer John Calvin/Protestant Reformation. I seek to go by what the Bible clearly teaches and not follow any Christian tradition/Roman Catholic or Protestant. I love the apostle Paul/New Covenant.
I have also been reading for devotions in the morning from these books-
"The Collected Works of St. John of the Cross" translated by Kavanaugh & Rodriguez
"We Believe in the Crucified and Risen Lord" [Ancient Christian Doctrine] Edited by Mark J. Edwards
"Luke" New Testament III [Reformation Commentary On Scripture] Edited By Beth Kreitzer
This morning I got these books out of my library to look at today-
"Early Christian Doctrines" by J. N. D. Kelly
"Divine Light: The Theology Of Denys The Areopagite" by William Riordan
"Partakers of the Divine Nature: The History and Development of Deification in the Christian Traditions" Editors Michael J. Christensen & Jeffery A. Witting
I brought home today from the library book nook two used books to add to our library-
"The Lower River" a novel by Paul Theroux
"The Man Who Loved China: The Fantastic Story Of The Eccentric Scientist Who Unlocked The Mysteries Of The Middle Kingdom" by Simon Winchester
Well I am feeling wasted so I will close to drift through the rest of this day.
