FULL CIRCLE : Vault-Co Stamp of Approval

It's canon. Seriously, read it because it is that good.

It took me quite a while to finish reading it in starts and stops but it was worth it. I am considering beginning again at chapter one and working my way through it again.

The section on the Ionians will blow your mind.

We are all in a stage play that has a regular change of actors. Otherwise, it's the same play over and over again. Somewhere in all this banality, God is trying to reach us at the individual level.Once you start to see it from his perspective you can imagine how tough it is on God to try to communicate with such wretches. For God it must seem like he is speaking to one of the animatronic robots at Disneyland, whispering to the mechanical automaton that he is loved and treasured and has a greater destiny somewhere beyond all this scripted emptiness. How do you get this metal puppet to understand it has an immortal soul? It would be really tough.

This guy is soft on Christianity big time. I am amazed he could get a publisher for this book.

Sounds like an interesting book. Would you please consider posting a list of your favorite books or must reads or something like that? I for one would love some recommendations from you.

Best regards from Sweden.

I put it on my to read list. Which is so long now it's frightening.

I'm reading now "The Fate of Empires and Search for Survival" by Sir John Glubb

A couple good quotes,"...Perhaps the most dangerous by-product of the Age of Intellect is the unconscious growth of the idea that the human brain can solve the problems of the world..."

"...In a wider national sphere, the survival of the nation depends basically on the loyalty and self-sacrifice of the citizens. The impression
that the situation can be saved by mental cleverness, without unselfishness or human self-dedication, can only lead to collapse...".
