Book

Many years ago I read a book called 'Christ on trial'. He was charged with misleading Man that he was the son of God. Brilliant reading with an enlightened finish.

Seems like much ado about nothing. Take on the five post challenge or move on. It is not designed as a personal affront. It actually helps, especially when it strikes you, 'I can do better'.

I must have entered the desert from the other side. It was full of babble as well as people making some sense, informative and not so. I am drawn back again and again, in search of elusive truth.
