Advent Lily,

{love your new name}

Do you have any link showing John Hagee as respectful
of our Catholic Faith, showing that he has "mellowed?"

Thanx

Bruce E. Wade,

Bruce,

On this Norman Cohn book

Cosmos, Chaos, and the World to Come, 2nd Edition

From the product description...

"In this engrossing book, the author of the classic work The Pursuit of
the Millennium investigates the origins of apocalyptic faith - the belief
in a perfect future, when the forces of good are victorious over the
forces of evil. Norman Cohn takes us back two thousand years to the
world views of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and India, the innovations
of Iranian and Jewish prophets and sages, and the earliest Christian
imaginings of heaven on earth, and he illuminates a major turning
point in the history of human consciousness. For this second,
corrected edition, the final chapter, on Zoroastrians, Jews and
Christians, has been wholly rewritten and extended."

"...he illuminates a major turning point in the history of human consciousness."

The great thing about the Kindle is the availability of free titles. One of the only things that I did pay for on my Kindle was my Bible.

I wish to extend my thanks to both Lily and Jim for the procuring of my newest edition of the Bible.

It is truly a lovely book. I'm not sure if it is leather bound or not, but if it is not leather, the vinyl is very malleable and easy to handle. Most of my Bibles have either paper covers, which tatter, tear, fold and crack, as the Bible is used, or hard covers that, while the covers better protect the pages, they are harder (no pun intended) to manipulate. It is also very slender. Most of the Bibles I have on my shelf are chunky, either tall and chunky or short and chunky. Those that I ordinarily use are study Bibles, which makes them even chunkier. Although it has a Concordance and a set of maps, like the study Bibles, it does not have the extensive commentary, or footnote which I don't need when I use a Bible in my catechism class. I think it will become the one that travels with me in the catechism bag, an honor, indeed, for my world.

And it came in a nice box, which will not be discarded, as I treasure nice boxes for storing little things in busy drawers. So, it was, in fact, two, two, two gifts in one.

Thank you, so much.

J Hampton,

Jim, only if you are moved to do so, could you send me the same
Bible that Patricia has received?

>thank you<

The notion that "Protestants see Mary as a 'real woman,' but Catholics don't" IS something to contemplate, alright.

For about two seconds tops. That's more than enough time to realize this is just one more bogus claim for Quester, and a good reason not to be a Protestant.

Pastor J Hampton,

Jim,

Yesterday, I was gone all day and when I came home after a Book
Club meeting, after the Thursday night football game, I found a
pleasant surprise waiting at my door.

There I found your most wonderful gift, my own ESV Bible, with its
pages trimmed in gold, a cover so butter-soft and a sewn binding.

Incredibly, there are even maps in full color and a concordance, but
most precious of all to me, are the Words of Our Lord Jesus, printed
in red.

What more could one ask...this lovely gift from you, a gift from a
friend.

Jim, every time I look at this Bible, every time I hold it in my hands,
every time I turn its pages, I will be thinking of you.

Sounds like he sent you the same one he sent me. Same thoughts, same thanks.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 7, 2012 4:47:40 PM PST
Patricia,

Yes, I requested the one you have.

Now I have the Douay-Rheims and the ESV.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 7, 2012 5:29:37 PM PST
As do I, along with a half dozen or more others. I find using various translations help me to understand better.

After I quit laughing at their silly notion. What gives them the idea that Catholics don't see Mary as a 'real woman'?

Quester, and every other godly man has to die, YET, Elijah, by God's grace, did not. Indeed, there are exceptions, as Mary is the woman at emnity with satan. (Gensis 3:15). Just as God was very specific about how His chosen dwelling place of old was to be designed, as it was to contain His law, (Exoddus 25), all the more His Mother, as she was to contain the Author of the Law, for He Who is Mighty, has done to HER, Mighty THINGS! as John the Baptist, by God's special grace, was filled with the Holy Spirit EVEN from his mother's womb for his special mission to announce the Messiah, all the more Mary, who was to give birth to the Messiah and be His Worthy dwelling place, she who was full of grace, (kecharitomen) even prior to the annunciation. Peace always in the Most Precious Blood of Jesus our Great God and Saviour

Advent Lily,

No, Lily, my Douay-Rheims is my family Bible in white leather.

I am glad that you find it so hilarious that you treat Mary as if she is part of the Trinity instead of the young virgin girl, who was obedient and loved God, and whom He chose to be the mother of His Son. She was created for a job which she did and still didn't make her anything but the woman who gave birth to and raised Jesus. That was her job. It has nothing to do with us and our relationship with God.
