While I didn't particularly enjoy this book the other times I've read it, I decided to try again.

... Especially since I just became eligible and received the BARD Reader from the Texas State Talking Book Program. http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/tbp/nlsbard.html

I'm still not enjoying the book, probably because I have a little bit of prudishness. Let me tell you, reading such casual use of "The N-Word" just doesn't sit right with me. *HEARING* it is making it incredibly hard for me to convince myself that it is worth slogging through the rest of the book. I will let you know what I have decided...

Done. I'm not sure I'll place it on my list of books to read over it and over again.

"The Lord's Supper in the Theology of Martin Chemnitz" by Bjarne Wollan Teigen.

While I am a little bit odd in the fact I like reading 16th century theologians, I am somewhat intimidated by this book. It comes with a set of instructions for how to navigate the book...

"And a wonderful time was had by all..."
