LibraryThing

I have just found what quite possibly is the most addictive website for book worms. LibraryThing.com. Launched in August 2005, you can catalog your entire library online. Features include: leaving ratings, comments, profiles, author clouds, tag clouds, graphical shelf. A good feature is that the search engine is linked to Amazon.com and the Library of Congress (among others...), so you can find basically any book in print. Another fine feature is how your library is measured and mapped with other users, allowing you to see what other folks have the same books, and how they rated them. You can leave comments on other people's libraries as well.

I have a library on there now. Check it out, leave a comment, and build your own.

Wow, thats an awesome site. And Joe, you've got an amazing library. I'll have to keep yours bookmarked so I can catch up with you a little. Thanks for pointing us to it. Sign me up!

I concur. Wow is right! I think I'll use your library for a kicking off point. But, I tell ya, I've got alot of catching up to do.

Hey, I'm reading "Why I'm not a Calvinist" (among other books right now). I thought I should give the Arminians their due say.

Have you read it? How 'bout you Nathan? Any thoughts? Anything to be wary of?

Thanks for the blogging fun, guys.

Hey fellas, I am adding books as we speak. I am hooked! I hope to add all my books by the end of the week. Check back often for updates.

Mike, I read "Why I am Not an Arminian". It was a fine book, but not the best rebuttal of Arminian theology out there. Loraine Boettner's work on Calvinism is solid, as is James White's "The Potter's Freedom".

As I come across books, I'll throw you some recommendations.

Keep on readin'!

Good to hear! I've got James White's book on my nightstand waiting to go next...after the rebuttal of Calvinism.

So, I take it you haven't read "Why I'm Not a Calvinist"?

Mike, you are correct sir! I haven't read it. I probably should, but I tend to find more edifying books to read other than "rebuttals" of Reformed theology. :-)

Golly, now you've given me a complex and your smiley face didn't work to ease the conviction. : )

I'm kidding (as my smiley shows)

Since we're on the subject of nothing serious...

How 'bout them SEAHAWKS!

And Husky basketball is on it's way!

Husky hoops can't get here fast enough. The Sonics couldn't hit water if they fell out of a boat right now. Worst shooting I have seen in a LONG time.

That's why we have the Dawgs.

Oh yeah, go Hawks!

OK guys, I'm going to have to part company with you. Your 'hawks might have beaten my Falcons earlier in the year, but clearly the better team did not win. Vick wasn’t feeling good, and we would've gotten that game winning field goal if he hadn’t come out of the game with an injury. Watch out for Vick and the birds... :)

No Mike, I have not read through that book. I did however, painfully make it through a lot of 'What Love is This'? But Joe is right, get 'The Potters Freedom' and you will see a halfway solid argument from Geisler and a full rebuttal from White.

Nate,

Much respect for the Falcons. Jimmy Mora is the coach and he is one of my favorites. UW grad, can’t go wrong there ( I wish he would have taken the UW opening last year! Oh well…). I like the Falcons to do well, but let’s be honest; they go as far as Vick takes them. Who knows, maybe your boys will get another shot at the Seahawks later in January? We’ll see. :-)

You deserve a cookie for reading Hunt’s mangled mess of meanderings and eisegesis. I had a hard enough time with Debating Calvinism. The Potter’s Freedom is still, imho, James White’s best work, along with The God Who Justifies.

Have a great weekend fellas!

Ha, a cookie? More like a tranquilizer shot! That book won’t be going up on Library Thing, not unless it’s in a special heresy section. I don’t know who’s a bigger fool when they open their mouth, Hunt or Pat Robertson. Their one in the same.

Hey Nathan...Sean Alexander had a "tummy ache" this past Sunday and managed to rumble in for a few touchdowns...not to mention an 88 yard romp!

What's Vick's excuse?

All kidding aside...I do get nervous when we have to play him (although, I don't think he has ever beat the Seahawks...correct me if I'm wrong) he is quite the athlete!


BTW
I'm 99% sure I'm going to the Shepherd's Conference this year.

You guys going? I sure would be cool to meet up.
