Out of Egypt

I just finished Anne Rice’s Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt a couple of days ago. An interesting read. I’m not sure I would have derived the same story were I writing a fictional recollection of this period of the life of Jesus of Nazareth, but she does a wonderful job of giving insight into what it is like to begin to discover oneself… especially as a child. And especially as a child where people are reticent to give you some of the information.

It’s quite hard to explain — the best thing is to read it yourself and ponder how each of us learns who we are from within and without.

Life of the Beloved : Spiritual Living in a Secular World

Just started it – but I’m over half done. This one will take some rereading I’m sure.
