I recently read a book by the Colonel; Oliver North (a Godly man, and one of my personal heroes) called 'American Heroes: The Fight Against Radical Islam'. It is a beautiful depiction of faith in the military, and what it *really* means to be a soldier.

Colonel North also has a series of Tom Clancy-esque novels by the names of; 'Mission Compromised', 'The Jericho Sanction', and 'The Assassins'. They are good reads as well, if you are into that sort of thing.

As far as deep-suspense books, I like just about everything from Frank Peretti. 'The Visitation' is probably my favorite one, though 'This Present Darkness' is good too. Heh...just read 'em.


Hey, so I'm going to see a concert of Third Day, and found this site. I thought I'd comment on the book selection du summer.

My favorite author at this point is Ted Dekker. Very entertaining author, along the lines of Stephen King without the cursing. I'm a voracious reader, and Ted Dekker has me turning the pages faster than you play those riffs. I've read all of his books so far and am looking forward to his newest, "Kiss" coming out sometime (I think) next year. If you get a chance, pick one of his up. "Blessed Child" was by far the best - really opens your eyes to the Lord's everyday miracles. His co-writer on that one was the late Bill Bright (can't wait to see him again.) Anyway, keep reading. It's a good thing! God bless.

I read "Rule of Four" right after I finished "DaVinci Code" (a while back). It *was* really good, but it felt a little rip-offish coming straight of of DaVinci. Ever read Crichton? Now *that's* a guy who can keep me turning pages...(well, most of his books anyway). Wish I had a blog so I could participate! :-)


Check out Neil Gaiman's CORALINE for a creepy read. It's a kid's book but it has those beloved layers all through it.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
