It is in the flow of existence 4:46 PM Saturday. We had a bad thunder storm blow through this afternoon. We were under tornado watch for awhile.

Today the library used books store was not busy and it was not slow either. When not helping people I wandered the store and read. I brought home just two used books from the book nook to add to our book collection-

"The Einstein File: J. Edgar Hoover's Secret War Against The World's Most Famous Scientist" biography by Fred Jerome

"Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job: How the Oldest Book in the Bible Answers Today's Scientific Questions" by Hugh Ross

When I got home from the library book nook Carol was doing stuff around the house. I have basically done nothing since getting home from the book nook. I am out of it. I can not focus on anything this evening.

I received in the mail today a used book I had ordered titled, "The Lunar Men: The Friends Who Made The Future" biography by Jenny Uglow. All I have attempted to read today is the book titled, "North of Now: A Celebration Of Country And The Soon To Be Gone" essays by W. D. Wetherell.

Well I suppose I will close to wander and look at a book I got out of our library titled, "Voltaire's England" Edited By Desmond Flower & Engravings By Hogarth.

Adding onto my other in the last post, I guess I'm going to have to request a copy of this book as well or find my own copy. Many years ago, I questioned many things as a Christian and where I stand as a Christian. Many said things in the Bible didn't make sense to me, and some of them are topics mentioned in this book. As Christians or anyone of faith, not all things can be answered. Much of it goes on faith and putting your life in the hands of God. Too many worldly objects and influences seem to get in the way, so I'd be interested to see what this book says. Have you read anything similar to it? Any recommendations of similar topics?

I got this book on Job because it was free. As a volunteer at the library used books store I am allowed one free book (can not be over two dollars) for volunteering. I personally would not have bought this book. To be honest I thought the book was by a fellow named Allen P. Ross who wrote good commentary on The Book of Genesis titled "Creation & Blessing: A Guide To The Study And Exposition Of Genesis" that I used many years ago when I taught a Sunday School class on Genesis. The fellow Hugh Ross is in whole different camp-he is into the defense the biblical view of creation. I personally do not believe in setting forth arguments for the belief in a biblical doctrine of creation. Some Christians are into apologetics (setting forth a rational defense for the Christian faith etc. . .). I personally have never had any problems believing in the biblical account of creation revealed in Genesis.

To me the act of creation is one believes by faith, Not implying that biblical faith is irrational. (Hebrews 1:2)
