Wei Dai Posted 9 months ago Lisa Bu: How books can open your mind Wow. Thanks Mary.M. Maybe I need to elaborate to the my meaning on "strange". Yes, Bible aid material is very good; yes comparable reading is eseential; and yes reading is not enough ( depends on how you brain actually process information :) ). What I want to say is that, if you read Richard Dawkins and C.S. Lewis at the same time, if you read Neuro Science and Religious book at the same time, if you are trying to understand string theory and the big bang and the verse in Genesis, if you read some of, if not "brutal" at least "very angry", human language in old testament out of context and read some very inspiring words of St.Paul.... I guess, what I want to say is that, as a self identified believer ( not in a dogmatic or fundamentalistic way) , it takes real strength for me to keep the Faith. I hope I am doing well.
