    Yeah, everyone's told me how different it is from the movie, and already three chapters in I can easily spot the differences. Still though, I'm quite enjoying it. It makes for an excellent read!

    Trying to read some of the books that I only knew the stories of as a kid but never got round to reading the book.

    I'm currently reading an incredible book called The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning. This one comes with a foreword by Michael W. Smith and testimony by Rich Mullins and both highly recommend the book. It is a great explanation of the wonderful, matchless grace of Jesus that is greater than all our sins. And it's been comforting and encouraging to me as it reminds me of all the incredible verses in Romans that explains that through Christ's death and Resurrection, all sins have been paid for and I can rest in the assurance of His salvation and His grace, even though I've done many wrong things and still have so many failures while trying to live for Jesus.
    For any Christians out there on the forum and anyone just curious about who Jesus is and what He came to do, this book explains the crux of Christianity really well. It's all about God and His grace- how He so loved the world that He gave His only Son so that whosoever will believe in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 is so familiar but it's so incredible to consider every time.:)

    Not familiar with that one, Gonzo's Hobbit. Who's the author?

    L.A. Kelly. It's a fictional novel about a mercenary that comes to Christ while in the middle of breaking away from the band he works for. If's nice if you like mideval themed novels.
