I love to read. I love books. I like to talk about books and recommend them. I read everything including cereal boxes and junk mail! I heard once that if you're not reading at least 3 books at a time you're not reading enough! This blog will keep track of the books I've read and whether or not I liked them. It will be a little bit of everything from Christian fiction to Science fiction and fantasy. Feel free to participate by suggesting books to review and giving your comments. Occasionally I am given free books by Publishers in exchange for a review. I am not told how to review them or compensated in any way for the review.

I’m reading a novel about the quest for immortality.  This seems to be the theme of many books both fiction and nonfiction.  As humans we have a natural desire to live forever.   But I don’t think we really start thinking about this until we hit 50 or 60 years old.  All of a sudden time speeds up and years go by in the blink of an eye and we start to wonder about eternity. 
There are many ways to prolong our lives from living a healthy life style to cryonics (the act of freezing the body after death hoping for resuscitation later on).  There are also ways to ensure we leave a legacy after our death; having families, producing a great piece of art or literature, becoming a philanthropist etc. 
The Bible says in Ecclesiastes says that God has put eternity in our hearts.  Our quest for immortality is really a God shaped vacuum longing to be filled put there by the Creator Himself.   The search for immortality is ultimately a search for God.    The good news is that God wants to be found and that He has provided a way for us to live eternally. 
  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16


  1. It seems to me that God is the original upcycler. He formed man out of the dust of the ground. He then filled him with His own breath, making man a living soul in His own image; an immortal mortal so to speak.
    Unlike God, we have a beginning, but it is His passionate quest to have us with Him in the never ending, after. He pursues us, woos us, and prepares a place for us, and the price of admission is a gift certificate already paid.
