My mother and I have been talking, sometimes heatedly, about the existence of god. I have made several points with her but I am loathe to make her feel defensiveness about her theistic beliefs. Today I stopped by and she showed me her latest book she acquired. She is a very prolific reader and devours a couple hundred books a year easily. I wish I had that much time to devote to reading.
The book is authored by a former atheist who has reconverted to christianity and the subject matter is jesus christ. No, I don't recall the author or title. But I am thinking my conversations have possibly planted a seed of doubt in her belief system. Or she is just looking for reaffirmation of her long held belief. Either way it is interesting. I am presently half way through Dawkins' God Delusion and considered offering to give her the book when I am through, with the agreement I would read her new jesus book. Don't know if that will pan out or not.
