Life Together

Finally finished a couple of books this morning – “Praying with Paul” and “The Magic of Reality”.  I enjoyed the first but not the second.

“The Magic of Reality” by Richard Dawkins was poor compared to his “The God Delusion”.  I was just so disappointed in the book because I loved his other book.  I want to try another one of his books but none of them grabbed my interest as I reviewed them so I moved on.  I am sure I will return to Dawkins later.

First, I looked at some lists of books I have.  Then I looked at books I own but have not read.  This brought me to “Communion of Saints” by Bonhoeffer.  I started it but did not get far.  I decided to look for another book of his since I so enjoyed “The Cost of Discipleship” and came upon “Life Together”.  Downloaded the sample and knew it was the book by the third paragraph so I bought it.

It is easily forgotten that the fellowship of Christian brethren is a gift of grace, a gift of the Kingdom of God that any day may be taken from us, that the time that still separates us from utter loneliness may be brief indeed. –Life Together by Bonhoeffer

I already have several highlights from the book.  This one was along the lines of part of what I wrote Wednesday.  It does not seem to be a long book.  I might finish it today if I focus.
