  1. To be honest I'm torn. I have a desire to read the book to be able to discuss the content. At the same time I also feel the same amount of Rob-bell-discussion overload that I feel after my monthly middle school girls sleepover. I just can't take one more discussion about Rob Bell or Justin Bieber.

  2. When I uploaded this photo I considered renaming the post: " Gargamel Eats an Imaginary Hamburger."
    If you don't remember Gargamel here is the Wiki link.

  3. Ben Witherington's review of chapter 6 is outstanding.
