Wow, it's been quite a while since we corresponded! Hope all is going well for you! What did you think of "Many Dimensions?" I've not heard of it, but sounds interesting. Looks like you've read another J.I. Packer as well - - I really appreciate his writing.
Best wishes for the summer,
Dear Brent: Thanks for the kind words on the Spotted Assassin Bug. I had to look up Eastern Bloodsucking Conenose . . . what a great insect! Also, I've added Veith's "Reading Between the Lines" to my Wish List, sounds like a fascinating read! Best wishes, Scott
Hi Brent: Thanks for the note. What did you think of Veith's lecture? I have read many articles by him in World magazine, and have overall been impressed (some of my "younger" friends are a bit more critical). I have read over half of "The Discoverers" by Boorstin. The book was good, as far as I got, it's just that I'm not much for reading historical accounts (I've been reading the Lewis & Clark "Undaunted Courage" book for 2 years!!). I thought Boorstin's chapter on the Galileo conflict to be of interest ("Caught in the Cross Fire"). Anyway, if you read it, perhaps you can encourage me to finish the book! I also have Boorstin's "The Creators" which I want to read. BTW, changing the subject, have you ever explored bugguide.net? I have become an addict, posting many of my bug photos, and getting lots of ID help from experts (my submitted photos are under my tapbirds name). Best wishes, Scott
Hi Brent: I saw the "Parrots of Telegraph Hill" movie, but I haven't read the book. I don't work too far from that area, so I occasionally take a walk at lunch. I can usually hear the parrots long before I spot them! Also, thanks for the "Cry of the Kalahari" recommendation; it sounds like a great book (I’ve added it to my “wish list”) – oh, if there was only more time to read!! Best wishes, Scott
Greetings! Thank you for accepting my Shelfari friendship, I have been meaning to drop a note. I notice that you have similar books on natural history and Reformed theology - I was fascinated by your book shelf! Any good recommendations? Thanks again, Scott
