  1. Very interesting reading.

    I don’t agree with a lot of what is present here so far, but I absolutely am excited for the chance to learn and understand more about what others in my life believe; moreover, I intend to read through and study objectively and with full intellectual honesty. It will either convince me, or allow me to make a stronger case for what believe- But one way or another, with the Holy Spirit as my guide, these resources will most certainly aid in making me a stronger Christian.

    Thanks, Charles.
