    Oh yes can't forget The Imitation of Christ - Thomas a Kempis.

    I randomly glanced through this book at a church library, and DAMN! I was struck with a touch of cold water or something. I was immediately hooked on the simple but deeply spiritual profoundity of this work.

    Certainly, although later. It's past 2 am now and I just got done engaging Kiddo in a heavy discussion about the Israel-Palestine conflict.

    The Walking Drum by Louis L'Amour. There's lots of things in that book that I have thought about much. I read it the first time when I was 12, and I have read it several times since then just because it's awesome.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
