Passage of Discovery: The American Rivers Guide to the Missouri River of Lewis and Clark - book cover picture

Nothing is as constant as change on the unfettered Missouri River. Few stretches of the Missouri remain as Lewis & Clark observed them. The river, as Botkin observes, is "nature's landscape painter". The canvas is continually changing in response to the forces of a river draining one-sixth of the U.S. Botkin presents us with the story of the first navigation of the river by Lewis and Clarke, through the river's channalization by the Army Corp of Engineers, to present efforts to restore and interpret the river.But, this book is more than an inventory of facts and issues. It contains vivid illustrations of nature's interrelationships and wry observations on the irony of man "improving" nature.This is a very practical, pragmatic, yet poetic book.

Book title: Managing Church Conflict
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Managing Church Conflict - book cover picture

First published in 1991, this has become a standard work on understanding church conflict. It is in a different category than Ken Sande's "The Peacemaker" (also an excellent book). Sande writes to equip individual Christians to follow Christ in resolving interpersonal conflicts. Halverstadt, however, addresses the more complex dynamics of congregational conflict. Halverstadt's vision for peaceful churches is based on God's shalom, and he integrates this theology with insights from family systems theory and organizational development. The book is organized according to an in-depth Flow Chart for Managing Church Conflict that presents almost every conceivable conflict scenario and suggests detailed procedures. This is a book of high density, but there is no substitute. It is required reading for anyone who wants to understand congregational conflict.

Prisoners of Shangri-La : Tibetan Buddhism and the West - book cover picture

This is a wonderful book describing (to some extent) Tibetan Buddhism, and the western reaction to Tibetan Buddhism.Here you will learn that the highly influential "Tibetan Book of the Dead" is basically unknown in Tibet itself, that the most influential and best-selling book about Tibet ("The Third Eye") is a fraud committed by a cheap British hack who had never even visited Tibet, that the famous mantra "om padme hum" does NOT mean "the jewel in the lotus" -- in fact, I'm not quite sure if anyone knows "what it means", and that the current Dalai Lama has had serious and ongoing difficulties with members of his own religious sect who are devotees of a grisly supernatural power known as "Shugden."In sum, there is a lot of debunking in this book, and it's very well done. It is even done kindly and gently. The author is not so much outraged as puzzled. You may come to share this feeling!Highly recommended!

A wonderful collection of essays


Book title: Essays on Life Itself
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Essays on Life Itself - book cover picture

Dr. Rosen was a great man and this collection of essays follows on a number of foundational and classic works. The essays expand on, and clarify, a number of key issues that are present throughout Rosen's work. These include the Church-Pythagoras thesis, the mind-body problem, reductionism, syntatics and semantics, and biology and technology. My main contribution to what has already been said in other reviews is to note that this work might be best viewed as a complement to Rosen's earlier work, Life Itself. Or, said differently, it might be best to read Life Itself first (if you haven't already). These are very complex topics that are explained from the standpoint of biology and mathematics and those without a previous foundation in Rosen's work--as I was when I bought this book--may find they have to establish that foundation first.

A Great Study Bible for the Serious Student

HarperCollins Study Bible: New Revised Standard Version (with the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books) - book cover picture

This bible is based on the New Revised Standard Version translation, which I like. It maintains the poetic and literary quality of the King James Version while the meaning and wording does not suffer. The rights to the NRSV are held by the National Council of Churches in Christ which is a group very focused on ecumenical issues. The footnotes are very good and thorough, though at time they are a little liberal, doubting whether events happened. But this is not major, for as in any study bible, you should make your own judgement. It has good maps and charts, including my favorite,a list of Old Testament Quotes in the New Testament. All books have introductions, and some outlines. It also comes with the deuterocanical books which is good for study even if your denomination does not endorse them. This bible is very good for mainline Christians and certainly good for study. I give this Bible 5 stars

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) - book cover picture

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is so far the best book in the series. I hate reading but i could not put the book down. It's not the same as all the other books becuase it feels like ur watching a movie. I've read it about 5 times and just keep reading the ending over and over again. My friends think that i'm mad. I can not wait for the movie 2 come out I can also not wait till J.K.Rowling puts out her next book.

Against the Gods : The Remarkable Story of Risk - book cover picture

This book is in every way the best book that I have read on the history of probability, or better to say history and evolution of risk management. Starting from the very early ages of probability, game logic and thinking to the most current theories and obstacles that we face today in the area of risk management, this book truly explains the initial concepts of risk management.The book is very readable, and it will probably take you couple of hours to read it. It is indeed addictive. Definitely the best book written on such topic.

Pompeii : A Novel - book cover picture

Perhaps it was because I was expecting this book to be some semi-historical stody account of long ago, or perhaps it was becuase I was only midly interested in the era the action takes place, but for whatever reason, I was (pardon the pun) blown away. For what happend was this: I got a fun, easy-to-read, interesting and well-written work of fiction, peppered with interesting facts and some great writing. Homosexuality? Nudity? Sex? Hellooooo?!!! This is Pompeii we're talking about. The only thing better than reading this book is actually going there to see the ruins. Would also recommend another great read, though it's nothing like "Pompeii" in setting or plot, and that is a book called "Bark of the Dogwood" by Jackson McCrae. Also check out "The Girl with the Pearl Earring," for something really different.

Economics and the Common Law : Cases and Analysis - book cover picture

I took Dr. Deserpa's Law and Economics Class when he was using the manuscript for this book. The cases presented are relevent, and provide some much appreciated pieces of humor. As a first-year law student right now, I can honestly say I consult back with (what eventually became) this book for insights into my classes when we go over the cases Dr. Deserpa presents. This book has my highest recommendation!

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

Mr. Franken has the truth and actually backs it up with extensive research. Unlike Coultor or O'Reilly he uses facts to prove what we as Americans for long have been lied to about. People who refuse to look as history as a valuable learning tool (elite right) will make the same mistakes over and over. Al Franken mirrors the frustration of many Americans who follow world events closely. Thank you Mr. Franken for not speaking to us as stupid blind followers!
