I'm currently writing up a thesis of my theory, so most of my reading is reference.

Catechism of the Catholic Church
The Elegant Universe- Brian Greene, pouring through it a second time.
The Confessions of St. Augustine
The City of God Against the Pagans - St. Augustine
Selected Philosophical Writings - St. Thomas Aquinas

I ordered off of Amazon a while ago:
The Illusion of Conscious Will
The Problem of the Soul
The Complete Works of Shakespeare
... Gotta get some leisure in there somewhere.

"Shogun" by James Clavell (someone else said this)
and "Flatland" by Edwin A. Abbott. I recommend this if you’re into nerdy dimensional stuff.

Piddler on the Hoof by SI Fishgal - history through the potent fiction, entertaining, capturing, inspiring.
The derisive living truth and death emotionally awake a Jewish preschooler in the Red Army's Rearguard during the WW2.
"Damn good soul teaser," wrote Barnes & Noble's reviewer. "No fruitless illusions, impractical fantasies and daydreamers. It's life, death, humor and true emotions. Coolest book on hottest topics, rich, vivid, fascinating, stimulating and gripping novel."

Mary Roach's Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

It's a non-fiction work about all the stuff that can happen to a cadaver. It manages to be respectful and humorous, which is surprising considering the subject matter. One of the best things I've read in a while.

I saw a discovery channel documentary about the history of using cadavers for medical study. In England, it seems there was a shortage of cadavers and two gentlemen (I don't recall their names) actually went out and "made" cadavers for a local medical professor. First, they started out with local homeless guys and then progresses to whomever was available and eventually got caught.

Now I'm in the middle of both Satan Speaks and the Devil's Notebook by Anton LaVey. They're both pretty short, but I don't have time to sit down and read these days.

The reconciliation between science and religion, especially during the Rennaisance Period, has always intrigued me. This is a pretty fast-paced, in-depth and compelling read for those that are interested in the chronology of the earth and how it was arrived at from both the scientific and theological perspectives (see review below):

Measuring Eternity: The Search for the Beginning of Time

by Martin Gorst (Broadway Books, 2001) 338 pages


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reviewed by Paul Halpern


In 1675, London bookseller Thomas Guy sought a way to market Bibles to the largest possible audience. Under contract from the University of Oxford, he designed a new edition that—in addition to eye-catching illustrations—included a timeline of biblical events developed decades earlier by Irish archbishop James Ussher. Through meticulous research of the nuances of who begat whom and when, Ussher had determined that the world began at six o’clock in the evening on Saturday, October 22, 4004 B.C.E. Guy’s Bibles flew off the stands, and Ussher’s chronology, including his date for Creation, became so widely accepted that authorized Church of England publications reported it for centuries.

The tale of Ussher sets the scene for British science writer Martin Gorst’s fast-paced and witty account of the pursuit of the age of the world. Gorst, who has a knack for capturing the strengths and stumbling blocks of the key players of every era, chronicles centuries of debates among geologists, biologists, astronomers, and theologians concerning the way the Earth has developed. He shows respect for each competing theory, ultimately showing how science has progressed through clashes of once seemingly reasonable approaches.

The last part of Measuring Eternity concerns the search for the age of the universe, far too important a topic to describe in just a few chapters. Pity that Gorst didn’t develop it as a volume in its own right. As it stands, the book provides a far-too-brief history of modern cosmology appended to a marvelous account of how we learned about the venerable age of our planetary home.
