I haven't had much luck with finding exactly what I'm looking for either, but then - I haven't really looked too hard. I guess if I never find out what I'm looking for, it won't be the end of the world, but it's just got me kind of intrigued. I saw a "calendar" once that kind of showed what I was looking for starting at a long ways BC.. showed the events in the Roman Empire, before Julius Caesar and then went on until Christ was born and upwards into newer times. I wish I had gotten it when I saw it, but didn't. Oh well.... someday maybe I'll get it figured out. One of these books I have here at least touches on some of it I think.. maybe this winter when the weathers not so nice, I'll settle down and sit down and read.. Thanks for your help.

oh, I see what you mean! I am unaware of any books like that off the top of my head, but now I'm curious...

But for history in general I like Kenneth C. Davis. He writes the "don't know much about" series. As in "Don't know much about...GEOGRAPHY"

I have his books on the civil war, american history, and the bible.

Thanks, I'll keep those in mind. Actually I'm looking more for a timeline of events and the chronological order of things along with the geographic history back in those days. I guess more from a history aspect rather than a religous or christianity aspect. Probably using Adam & Eve as a starting point.. Not sure that I'll ever find just what I'm looking for though, it will be something to keep me occupied. Thanks for the input.

Others that would be helpful are Lee Strobel's "Case For" series.

I've read the Case for Christ and the Case for a Creator

I have the Case for Faith, but I haven't read it yet. And then there is also the Case for the Real Jesus, which I don't own.

But they were interesting and helpful reads about Christianity.

I just got two books, "So That's Why" and another "Walking the Bible". I should explain, I'm not really a religous person, not having had much religion in my life and have never figured out the chronological events in the bible, BC or AD and I decided at 71 years old, I was going to read these books and see if they explain the answers to me. So, I'm looking forward to getting started with one of them. They look like books that will need to be read without a lot of distractions, so maybe some quiet afternoons or something.

I can't pick a favorite book either. I read alot of mystery, especially with female main characters. I guess my favor would be Janet Evanovich!

I can't choose an absolute favorite, but right now for mind candy I prefer the In Death series by JD Robb.

I am a read-a-holic too. I love scifi/fantasy, especially Lewis and Rowling. I enjoy Christian fiction. The Mitford Series by Jan Karon is great. I prefer the Gospels in the Bible, but also enjoy other holy writings that speak simple truths.

I like a whole variety of books as well. Good novels, non-fiction, educational (especially Oregon history, more geographical than people) Cookbooks... I read cookbooks like some people read novels (probably why I'm here trying to lose weight!!)
As for a particular book coming to mind, right now, I'm thinking "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" I liked that one!

Well I guess technically the Bible as well.

Although it is actually a collection of books, so to further choose, my favorite book in the Bible is James. There are numerous nuggets of wisdom to be found.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!
