    Step back to Christianity's first three centuries to see how it transitioned from the religion of Jesus to a religion about Jesus. How did a single group from among many win the struggle for dominance to establish the beliefs central to the faith, rewrite the history of Christianity's internal conflicts, and produce a canon of sacred texts – the New Testament – that supported its own views?

    Story

    I was disappointed that there was more guessing than real answers. Per the professor, sources are scarce but then went on to do a lot speculating about things he and his colleagues really don't know. This is not helpful. I stuck out the whole lecture hoping it would get better which it did only marginally, cringing as it went along. I was reminded of Paul's statement, "Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."

    No one loves and understands animals like the eccentric 19th century physician Dr. Dolittle, who masters animal language with the help of Polynesia the parrot. After his human patients desert him, the kind-hearted doctor finds his calling in practicing animal medicine, and his fame spreads far and wide. When a terrible epidemic breaks out among monkeys in Africa, Dr. Dolittle sets out to save them, accompanied by some of his favorite pets.

    Stacey says: "Has racist undertones"
    "Definitely a children's book."

    Amusing but far fetched book for adults. The last half was particularly laborious for me.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "A good who dun it story with a twist at the end."

    The reading and story were enjoyable. Warning to sensitive ears - the 'F' word is used a lot.
