    I enjoy Grant Jeffrey's books and have read almost all of them (I say almost because I think I've read them all but there might be one I've missed). While I don't always agree with everything he has to say I find his theories interesting and have even learned a few things I didn't know.

    The Ghost Map
    The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic--and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World
    by by Steven Johnson

    Johnson tells the story of the worst outbreak of cholera in Victorian London. He describes in detail how Dr. John Snow totally changed how diseases are viewed and how they are spread. This is a very interesting book. If you read this book your view of life in the Victorian age in London will be changed forever.

    With Wings Like Eagles : A History of the Battle of Britain
    By Michael Korda

    Two interesting facts:

    Young British women pilots delivered new planes from the factory to the military bases, flying them into the airfield daily.

    Neville Chamberlain, remembered for his failure at Munich was largely responsible for the decisions made in the late 1930's that built up the RAF fighter planes force and thus the RAF had the equipment to meet the German air invasion.

    Jean H. Baker, The Stevensons: A Biography of an American Family; and the first volume of John Bartlow Martin's biography of Adlai Stevenson .. Adlai Stevenson in Illinois.

    It is interesting that although Stevenson's background was Presbyterian, he was influenced by his wife's Unitarianism. His sister flirted with Christian Science, and people around him tried to give him religious counsel occasionally. His speeches and letters reveal many references to prayer and to following the teachings of Jesus. But he was a long, long way from the more overt piety of some presidential candidates over the years.

    Red Badge of Courage by S. Crane.

    I read this book many years ago and did not realize how much of the story I had forgotten until I re-read it.

    Gregg Allison, Historical Theology. I highly commend this book! This is one that should be processed by everyone who is ministering the gospel.

    Alternatives to American Mainline Churches, edited by Joseph H. Fichter. Dated now, but the focus on what people look for when they circumvent classic Christianity is still valid.

    "The Original Argument: The Federalists' Case for the Constitution" - It's essentially the Federalist Papers put into modern language with many footnotes and commentary.

    "The Patriot's History Reader: Essential Documents for Every American" - Lary Shweikart

    Finally, I just gave a collection of R.M. Ballantyne books to my nephew for his birthday, so I'm going through a couple of my own kids' Ballantyne books. They're children's books, but they're very good and very entertaining.

    Robert Louis Stevenson cited Ballantyne as a major influence and as the patron who allowed him to write "Kidnapped" and "Treasure Island".

    Actually, I am currently trying to get deeper into the bible. I normally am nose deep in a Christian life book, but lately I have come to the realization that I would love to be able to quote scripture more easily. Most people need help with learning to read the bible and bible lessons in order to understand what is being read. I know I have a hard time with some of the parables.
