So yeah, Confessor, the final of the 11 book Sword of Truth series finally came out and I finished it today, and I must say; It moved me. There would be too much to explain why, but it just contained so many feelings of goodness and ended on such a happy note that I couldn't stop myself from... coming on here and posting a question.

What books have truely moved you? Helped you with emotional issues? Made you cry? etc.

'The Old Man and the Sea' by Hemingway. When his hands are completely destroyed after catching the fish, when the sharks eat his fish and when he's lying on the bed and the boy is crying, that book gets to me.

'Across the River and into the Trees', again by Hemingway. The main character is WWII veteran and he's haunted by one battle he fought where he lost a whole regiment. When he leaves his lover, knowing that he's going to die is sad.

'Lolita' by Vladimir Nabokov. That book made me feel filthy by reading it, but in a good way. Which is a strange thing in a book about paedophilia and murder.

Have you read For Whom the Bell Tolls by Hemingway? I started it and never managed to finish it but wanted to know if it's any good.

Yes, I've read it. It's very good, if a little slow in places. You should definetly read it all the way through, the second half of it is brilliant, especially the ending.

The Bible


If the Bible made you feel good then you are one strange man. When I was a Christian I tried reading the Bible and got upto the bit where two girls get their father drunk and have sex with him. That was having already read about murders, rapes and godly wrath.

No, you're not supposed to read it from the vantage point that everything applies to us in the modern age. I'm not getting into it here, but the Old Testament was written to the Israelites in a specific time period. Also, the purpose isn't necessarily to make you feel good all throughout...it's a history book. If you want to feel good, read the Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, or much of the old testament.

^ And it wasn't. What was unlawful or sinful before Christ's coming remains so to this day. I think you and I have actually had this discussion before in the Religion Thread. Christ fulfilled the law...he didn't change it. Rituals and methods for atonement changed because of His crucification.

So I've been told. Most people don't actually concede their position so for that I thank you.

And I'd sig that if I wasn't doing the non quote sig thing at the moment.
