My Ipod


I'm actually following through with my ipod. I'm a little surprised, which is sad. I shouldn't be surprised that I'm following through on doing something that is good for me. One of the unexpected benefits has been that I'm doing more-- more housecleaning, more walking, etc. You see, I can't just sit and listen, so I'm getting up and doing physical things while I'm listening.

I'm currently listening to The Last Week by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. It's their interpretation of the events of Holy Week as they are found in Mark. It's a fascinating book, and I wish I'd started it earlier so I'd have more time to digest it before the sermons I have to write this week. I'm grateful for the intellectual stimulation and the spiritual food. It was money well spent.

Thanks for the book info. We are compiling a list of books for my book club (at church). I'll put this one into the list of possibilities.

I was looking for a good audio book! Thanks!

And glad to hear you are doing something for you. :-)

Warning: this book challenges much of what we have always been taught about Holy Week. It's making me think and reconsider some things. It's nothing I could use or preach with the congregation I currently serve. I love things that challenge me to think and look at things differently. Some people find that very threatening. If you do get the book, I'll be interested to hear what you think.
