#1 The Bible of course.
#2 Pilgrim's Progress.
#3 Calvin's Bondage of the will.
#4 The Reformed Faith, a small book of only twenty something pages, but still a good, solid read.
#5-8 Any random titles by RC Sproul.
# 9 A book on wilderness survival.
#10 Your best life now by Joel Osteen, to use for starting fires. Lol.

What a great idea for a new Thread.

Thank you for the inspiration.
I'll have it up later today, i hope.

Ok, pass on that, as i wrote it, its very interesting, but, there is no way to write about some topics, like ......... Faith, Salvation, Justification, the Blood Atonement, Calvin's "tulip nonsense", Redemption, Eternal Life, The Cross, , Paul, James, Hebrews, and about everything else that is interesting regarding "The Atonement",.. = there is really no way to detail what is necessary so that the topic is discussed clearly and in depth without entering into some facts about Grace vs Legalism, ( that is been rebranded as that SUBJECT that we can't discuss here.)

Sorry, but, i can't show it, as the'll lock it.

I'll go now and look at other Posts here, and see if there is something safe to respond to.......:)

It's not that these topics can not be discussed, but that many times they lead into debates and arguments and that's why they become closed. If everyone sticks to the ToS that everyone agreed with before becoming a member than these topics can be discussed in a fashionable loving manner without bashing another's belief.
