Dune by Frank Herbert

Dune was first published in two parts in a science fiction magazine called Analog in 1965. I read the ACE 2005 trade paperback edition (ACE is an imprint of Penguin Random House).  I read Dune because the movie is coming out this year (2020). The trailer looked cool and I wanted to check the book... Continue Reading →

They’re short, compact, very readable “How To” translations of ancient philosophical works. I’ve read four so far and this is my second by Seneca,... Continue Reading →

Knowing God by J.I. Packer

    This book is difficult to sum up in a review. It’s one of those great Christian books that belongs on the Mt. Rushmore with Mere Christianity and Desiring God.
