Books I Read On Vacation: The Assult On Reason

One of the things that I in my old age have grown to love is reading books from people who I disagree with. I think it helps me separate what I really believe from what I believe because I have heard it talked about enough.

Why I liked this book. It further cemented in my mind that as a Christ follower I am not to be ignorant of what is going on in the world around me.

I like how this book made me realize that Al Gore and the democrats are accusing the Republicans of doing many of the very same things that the republicans accuse the democrats of doing.

This book made me realize afresh that many Christians waste to much time thinking politics will change our nation, it will not. We all must vote, yes. In my opinion Christians including myself have looked to politics far to much to solve the ills of society that only Christ can fix.

I liked this book because Al Gore had some excellent points and perspective I would have missed out on had I not read his book. His points about money and power corrupting our system where very good. His points on the affects of visual communication vs. written communication we fantastic.

There were a few things I didn’t like but I will not go into all of those. Al Gore considers himself a Christ follower and as one I felt he was borderline bitter in his tone and repeated dissent against this current administration.

I would definitely recommend this book. I learned a heap. Lastly just so you know my two favorite Presidents are Lincoln and Reagan, it’s a shame there aren’t more Republicans and Democrats like them.
