Country Western singer Kinky Friedman often performs a song entitled "They Ain't Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore," and New Testament professor Amy–Jill Levine would agree. In fact, her career is dedicated to helping Christians and Jews understand the Jewishness of Jesus, thereby deepening the understanding of him, and facilitating greater interfaith...

@jinxeptor @jaybeans I really enjoyed her book about Jesus: The Misunderstood Jew. I felt like it offered a perspective on the New Testament that I hadn’t considered. And it’s a fascinating and accessible text!      fuente

Is The Great Brain series still in print? Has anyone ever optioned them for a Netflix show or whatever? Man I loved those books. You can’t help but root for Tom, even when he’s swindling his own family.      fuente

El diario de Bridget Jones book cover
El diario de Bridget Jones
Helen Fielding - 1999-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1996)
Calificación de Goodreads
Es poco usual encontrar a una autora que escriba sobre las mujeres de hoy y que sea realmente divertida e inteligente. Helen Fielding lo ha conseguido con un personaje desenfadado, hilarante y que habla sin tapujos sobre sus contemporÁneos. El libro transcribe un aÁo de la vida de Bridget Jones en forma de diario.

Un planeta a la deriva book cover
Un planeta a la deriva
Madeleine L'Engle - 1981-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1978)
Calificación de Goodreads
Un planeta a la deriva recibió el National Book Award (1980), y otros importantes premios y menciones como el ALA Notable Children’s Books, y los otorgados por la Asociación de Bibliotecarios de Estados Unidos. El mundo está en jaque. Un dictador demente ha declarado un terrible ultimátum: en veinticuatro horas ejecutará un ataque nuclear masivo que pondrá en peligro la vida de todo el planeta. Es entonces cuando aparece Gaudior, un unicornio venido del espacio que acompaña a Charles Wallace en un peligroso viaje a diferentes momentos del pasado. El propio Charles se adentrará físicamente en cuatro personas de tiempos remotos. Al mirar tras sus ojos, él comenzará a comprender las consecuencias cósmicas de las acciones de todo ser humano, y se convertirá en testigo de la transformación del mundo hasta nuestros días. Pero cada segundo cuenta y la amenaza es inminente. ¿Podrá Charles Wallace, con la ayuda de Gaudior y su hermana Meg, impedir el desastre? En esta tercera parte de El Quinteto del Tiempo, Madeleine L’Engle ofrece un visionario análisis de la influencia del hombre en su entorno, y una aventura sin igual a través del espacio y del tiempo.

Thanks to @EJBrand’s wonderful book, The Fall of the House of Byron, I have been on a deep dive into the infamous Lord Byron’s grandfather’s life. It involves a shipwreck, a marooning, and is definitely at the intersection of nightmare/fascinating      fuente
