Hey all! What are you currently reading? The weather is warming up and summer break is coming soon for the highschoolers; so what is everyone reading?

I'm currently reading 'How Green Was My Valley' by Richard Llewellyn...though it's getting a little strange toward the end.

'How Green Was My Valley' is a slice of life novel written by an absolutely poetic author...but sometimes his comments come off a little odd. The main character, Huw Morgan, lives in a Welsh coal valley where he learns all sorts of things from mining coal, of course, to how to fight boys at school.

A more modern read, 'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children' is also a good read. It follows a teenage boy, Jacob Portman, who searches for the truth behind his grandfather's past. Jacob's grandfather mentioned things like monsters and special children; it's very interesting who the real monsters are...you'll find out who if you read the book.

With a term paper due shortly, reading probably shouldn't be a top priority..but it's fine. We're fine.

I read "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children", the whole book series which is different than the adaptation make for TV. I liked it, but it was a bit dark.

Indeed, I have heard that the film adaptation was very dark and unsettling! Another book is coming out though, so the producers may go in a different direction with that. It's like 'Anne With an E.' Many people were remarking at how depressing it was. Oh well...the books for both series have so far been good!

That sounds similar to another book about famous female martyrs all over the world, though the name slips beyond the grasp of my mind at present. Do you recommend the book you just read?

I just recently purchased a book by "Wayne Grudem" called, "Systematic Theology". It is a book that teaches all the major "doctrines" in the Bible. 1,290 pages, so it might take me awhile to read. The good part is it is topical so you do not have start from page one. I highly recommend it to anyone who is into serious Bible study.

I've read this last book called Transforming Grace. Excellent book on proper perspective of God's unconditional love, grace, mercies.

I saw that in movie form when I was a child...I didn't understand most of it because I was so young and inexperienced....I watched it again about thirty years ago...LOL I was a coal miner at that time. Good story.

The Shinar Directive
The Shinar Directive serves as a kingdom intelligence briefing for God's people in the twenty-first century.On the ancient plains of Shinar, an evil was born: The first world king, the prototype transhuman, the ultimate despot, the Son of Perdition--Nimrod. In Babylon, the Son of Perdition devised the Shinar Directive: the enslaving of humanity and the war against the God of Heaven. God's intervention at the Tower of Babel only delayed his hellish plans. The Luciferian Elite now control three key circles of influence in the world: financial, political, and religious. However, controlling these three systems was not enough. The laborers of Mystery Babylon have been quietly planning and waiting for thousands of years for the releasing of the Watchers of Genesis 6.Now armed with developing Watcher technologies, the Elite will use transhumanism and mind control to build the Joel chapter 2 army: the army of the Antichrist. We are beginning to realize that the mark of the Beast and the image of the Beast are much more than we could have ever imagined; beyond an implant and beyond a physical mark, they will affect DNA and who we are at a molecular level! As the powers of Mystery Babylon gather to create the new Tower of Babel and prepare for the Son of Perdition's return, Heaven is issuing a clarion call to the Remnant: Know the strategies of the enemy, untangle yourself from it, and become the victorious Church! Heaven's Jewish Apostle of Love, John, reveals the coming conflict in his book of Revelation and provides the ancient Hebraic wisdom encoded in 1 John to equip the bondservants of Messiah with the tools of the kingdom to overcome the Shinar Directive!

I don't know if you've seen this before Brother, since it's been around since 2015, but I thought you might find it interesting.

I seldom read any books other than about the Bible or Christianity or history that relates. A book was given me to read a few weeks ago that is a true story, which is good as I do not care for fiction.

The book is "The Spy And The Traitor" by Ben Macintyre. A book has to be very good to get my attention. I originally opened it to start reading just out of respect for the one who gave it, not expecting to finish it at all.

But, from the first page on, I was hooked. I literally could not put it down till I finished.

Tom Horn and Michael Lake...Both Spirit-filled researchers and teachers, pastors. They are worth listening to. I've seen this but thank you for bringing it back to me for review....They have a lot to teach those who will learn.
