@Joy_concepcion and that, in fact, is what I did last night too!
@madisonlmc oh, the Princeton Review does lots of books. (It’s not a specific book.) I’d just get the one that looks the most helpful and fits your budget.
@madisonlmc I bought one book. It was the Princeton Review. I highly recommend it. It has study material, test taking strategies (very important), and practice tests.
@LiveYourValues donate to GiveWell.
@Corina oh goodness. I’m so sorry.
@mattwiebe yeah, I agree. Though, most conservative Christians I know would like to think they are rigorous intellectuals. So I’m just trying to find somethings to concede to them. Both so I myself can see the merits and so I don’t sound like such an asshole when I tell people why I left.
@ninjanichols thanks. Yeah, that’s probably not quite what I’m looking for. I’m more interested in fact-based support for Evangelicalism. Like I think I heard Evangelicals are much more financially generous that most other groups. Something that discusses the positive impacts of or data-based evidence for conservative Christianity. I’m not really interested in something that just tows the party line. Maybe am apologetics book isn’t exactly what I’m looking for.
Strange request, for me at least. Does anyone know of a good, conservative-Christian apologetics book? By good I mean something that uses actual evidence to support Christianity. I’m not looking to defend a religion I no longer subscribe to. However, I would like to be able to see conservative Christianity in its most optimistic, yet fact based, light, given so many people I love participate in it.
@gabi yeah. That’s what I thought. So we ended having a destination wedding on a shoe string budget. It was just a few family members and friends. We hung out on the beach for a week with everyone and then got married at the end of the week. It was amazing.
@joeld uhh, same
@hufflepuff and Real Queer America was an inspiring look at some of the unknown, modern-day, LGBTQ heroes in conservative parts of the country.
@hufflepuff oh and Braiding Sweetgrass by Kimmerer is one of the most beautiful things I’ve read. The audiobook is also good.
@hufflepuff how fun! The Goldfinch by Tartt and The Night Circus by Morgenstern both are epic books with fantastic narrators. Also Zealot by Aslan.
@shannon @ValR @liz @danielkeyes137 @hope @Dom #seattleliturgists would anyone else, who is not tagged here, but would like to join us for our BBQ June 8 at 4:00 in Lynnwood, let me know. I’m going to send out a private message with details this weekend, but I want to make sure everyone is included. Cheers!
