  1. What a lovely library. This is just beautiful. Thank you for opening the door to your temple of peace and serenity.

  2. I will begin today to read the Gospel of Thomas and at the same time follow your commentary. I haven’t read any of the Gnostic Gospels but have for a long time been very curious. Which other ones would you recommend?

    • I would not consider myself versed enough in most Gnostic Gospels to recommend any beyond that of Thomas, with which I am as familiar with as I am the canonized Gospels, having read through each many, many times over the years.. Yet most can be found on the Web.

  3. The Demon Haunted World changed my life when I read it in high school. I looked at science in an entirely new light. I love reading other people’s reading lists. I don’t mean to be that guy, who says to add this book or that book, so I am totally not doing that – but I recently picked up a book called Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism that you might like.

  4. I love that you have included the Book of Mormon in this illuminating library. Not enough spiritual seekers have taken the Book of Mormon as seriously as it deserves. Also, thanks for following me!
