Celestial Matters
My emotional reaction on seeing the cover of this book was one of utter fascination.  How could this be?  A whole new genre, in my experience---blending tropes from the science-fiction of “the …

End of An Era
Robert J. Sawyer is one of the greats of Canadian (and world) science-fiction.  Since he's new to the scene, you may not have heard of him, but his works combine some of the most thought-provoking …
Messianic Judaism: A Rabbi's Journey Through
This book was a smooth read, and perhaps a different source of insight than the usual sources on Messianic Judaism (i.e. practioners and supporters)...  There's nothing like an outside perspective …

Heir to the Empire (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy,
This is definitely the best (and some of the first) "expanded universe" material beyond the original trilogy, which, if that's all the Star Wars you've seen, I recommend you start here, and proceed only …

Celestial Matters
Ever wondered what would life be like if your assumptions about science weren't right? I recommend this book to the beginner of alternative science and history.

The Eagle of the Ninth
This was a nice story about a Roman trying to find his way... "sacrificing" his bird was a memorable scene growing up without much exposure to non-Christian/pre-Christian religion.

Star Trek: The next generation - Vendetta, the
A Star Trek novel which combines some of the coolest TNG and TOS bad-guys---The Borg, the planet-killer, and the Preservers.

Jewish New Testament Commentary: A Companion
Good stuff for the beginning student of Hebrew roots or Messianic. Haven't read all of it, but gives you a good starter in the arena of Hebrew roots of the New Testament and "Christianity."

Digital Fortress
A thriller. Moves with movie-like pacing. Not a lot of deeper things from the characters, but an interesting chunk of the world of security and cryptography.

Les Miserables
This book was something I'd always heard about---but it also struck a chord with me. "Poverty Reveals Character" was the thesis of a paper I wrote using this as one of the subjects.

Messianic Judaism: A Rabbi's Journey Through
A very sympathetic introduction to the world of Messianic Judaism, to those ultimately familiar only with the (salient) categories of "Christians" and "Jews"...though the author herself is a non-Messianic …
posted a Quick Tip about My Favorite Ghost. August 08, 2010
This one's definitely a young-adult book. It concerns a haunter-for-hire, well---more of a money-grubbing entrepeneur (a young one) who lives to get cash....and haunts a house while he's at it. I would …

The Root Cellar
Kind of eerie to look back on it. A story of time travel, the civil war, and understanding life from a new perspective. Sad, yet meaningful.
