I don't care much for fiction. A friend just lent me the Diaries of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Looking forward to reading it as it contains several of my interests. I recently opened the Bible but did not get very far, starting at the first cover. I've looked at sections but can't get straight through. But I found a guy on youtube, Michael Rood. I think he posts under 'Rood Awakenings'. He explains the evolutions of languages involved in the Bible and how they change our understanding of what is going on in there. It helps. I have several versions of the Bible including a translation from the Aramaic. It is a little frightening being that one can see things prophesized going on today. But people have seen things in the past as well. Warning, he does not sugar coat--just straight talk.
