Good News, Bad News: Evangelization, Conversion and the Crisis of Faith
This book is pretty good. It’s fairly short and easy to read. It goes over evangelization (real evangelization – in my humble opinion). I only really had two complaints about the book. First is that I had read a lot of Fr. McCloskey’s material off the Internet in the form of papers and articles, and much of the material in the book is built from it. Second, I was hoping the book was going to be a little “deeper”. Being that it was light and easy to read was a plus in some ways, but it’s just not exactly what I was hoping for. Interesting but light.

The Jews in the Time of Jesus
Every once in a great while I will find a book that is exactly what I’m looking for. When I bought this book, I had a feeling that I would like it, but I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I had. I’ve always believed that if you want to understand the Gospel of Matthew and especially Paul you need to have a good understanding of first century Judaism and in particular Pharisadic Judaism. I know, it may sound dry and boring but it’s so not! If you are looking for a book on this topic and would like one that is interesting, understandable, and affordable - grab it.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
I read the first Harry Potter book and thought … I’d wait to write a whole post on it. Sorry!
