The List of 7 by Mark Frost
The List of 7

cl_klavon, July 10, 2008

I actually had to get rid of this book because it was giving me nightmares...it really was that terrifying. A fascinating and horrific tale of not just a seance gone horribly wrong, but rather, a more insidious plot that is made more terrifying by the believable use of well known literary and political figures of Victorian England. Just don't read this on Halloween night, or any night you find yourself alone in the house.

Ahryeh Kaplan translates the eloquence and the poetry of this mystical book very well, and his interpretations are amazing. A must-read for the more advanced Kabbalah student.

I am a personal friend of the author. Perhaps scribe would be a better way to describe him, as this book was a direct message from Spirit.

No words are minced, no point left un-made, and no evil deed is left un-noticed in this hard-hitting book. It's not an easy read--all its criticism of humanity, and its hopeful look toward the future (for though humanity has fallen far from its divine nature, there is still one last chance)--this will cause many to gnash their teeth, and throw this book back on the shelf in disgust. But it is the truth...and the truth shall set you free.

I don't know if this is the most recent version (as there have been 3 editions published)--that one is available at www.lulu.com/uriansim

Whether you agree with it or not, this book will change you either way.

The Four Witnesses: The Rebel, the Rabbi, the Chronicler, and the Mystic by Robi Griffith Jones
The Four Witnesses: The Rebel, the Rabbi, the Chronicler, and the Mystic

cl_klavon, June 10, 2008

This book was an amazing exploration of the Four Gospels. The author used a lot of the older Greek translations when discussing different passages of each of the four gospels, which made for a fascinating reading. For anyone who is studying the four gospels, this book does what no other NT study guide has ever done. It takes each gospel separately, and on its own merits, offering a fascinating interpretation of each place and time in which the four gospels were written.

On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction by William Zinsser
On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction

I purchased this book for an English class in college, and it has become my official bible. The language is simple, crisp, concise, and a lot of fun to read--all contained in a very portable paperback format. Perfect for the avid reader/writer on the go. I would definitely recommend this for English classes at high school level and beyond.
