The religious order to which I have a connection limits my primary reading to two dozen books. My little library is, in a way, deep in history and consists of:

  • Bible, unabridged Revised Standard Version
  • The Liturgy of the Hours, unabridged
  • World’s Oldest Alphabet; D. Petrovich
  • Exodus commentary; Thomas White
  • Herodotus: Histories; Tom Holland
  • Ezekiel commentary; Robert Jenson
  • Vergil: The Aeneid; by Sarah Ruden
  • Greek Grammar; Mathewson & Emig
  • Matthew; W. C. Davies & Dale Allison
  • Paul: A Biography; by N.T. Wright
  • Athanasius; ed. Khaled Anatolios
  • Saint Jerome; by Stefan Rebenich
  • The Confessions; by Saint Augustine
  • Dante’s Divine Comedy; Anthony Esolen
  • Sixteen Plays;  by William Shakespeare
  • Collected Poems & Prose; Robert Frost
  • The Lyrics 1961-2012; by Bob Dylan
  • U.S. Foreign Policy; W. A. McDougall
  • Veritatis Splendor; Saint John Paul II
  • Compendium of the Catholic Catechism

I entered the Catholic Church on Easter 2007 at an age of fifty seven, having come from a charismatic Wesleyan background.

We live in the 9th and 9th neighborhood of Salt Lake City, on the Wasatch Range in Utah at the western side of the Rocky Mountains, having moved there from the Virginia section of the Southern Blue Ridge Province in the Appalachian Mountains. I’m a member of St Ambrose parish and go there for daily Mass.
