    I just started reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
    Eph 2:8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift --
    Eph 2:9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
    Eph 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them. [HCSB]

      That sounds like a good one.

          Picked up a few books at the bookshop today that I will start reading now:

          On Evil by Terry Eagleton
          Fear and Trembling by Sören Kierkegaard
          Confessions by St.Augustine
          Penguine Classics Selected writings of Thomas Aquinas by (surprisingly) Thomas Aquinas
          "By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." (Luke 1:78-79)

          The Light Eternal, breaking through,
          the world to gleam anew;
          His beams have pierced the core of night,
          He makes us children of the light.

          -Martin Luther

            I also recommend Coren's book Why Catholics Are Right. It's fantastic.

              In defense of Israel and the Book of Job.

                In fact, every positional narrative is an appeal to authority---including Hitchens's.

                    Started rereading Adventures in Missing the Point by Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo, one of the bigger theological bombshells I came across while in college.
                    “In many ways the evidence of our faith is found in our ability to control our tongue (or our keyboard)."
                    -Adam Hamilton

                    “Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.”
                    -Ralph Waldo Emerson
