I actually went with a traditional carbon steel wok. The author of the book made a pretty strong case for them. Here's hoping I have the patience to get good at this. At least I'm being driven by my desire to eat better-tasting food. That should help.

Oh, but in addition to the 14" carbon steel wok, I did get something along the lines of the GreenPan: The 10" Green Earth Frying Pan by Ozeri. The reviews of GreenPan brand frying pans on Amazon.com kind of scared me away, with talk of bad batches. There were similar comments for other brands, but they seemed fewer in number.

Bump.

Since we're playin' with fire by talking politics in another thread, I figured I'd add religion to the mix. Mwah ha ha ha.

Seriously, this book looked interesting: "Patience with God: Faith for People Who Don't Like Religion (or Atheism)" by Frank Schaeffer.

From Publisher's Weekly: Author Schaeffer ("Keeping Faith") adopts a feisty tone in this essay about evangelical Christianity and aggressive atheism. In the first half of the book, he rebuts justifications from both sides, taking aim at the ideas of such celebrity atheists as Richard Dawkins as well as religious leaders like Rick Warren. Schaeffer asks each side to allow for an evolving religion in which allegory takes precedence over literalism. In the first half of the book, the author quotes lengthy passages from atheist writings, leaving little room for his own optimistic ideas. In the second half, he gives space for his own memories, recalling moments that led him to a middle path of hopeful uncertainty. Growing up in a well-known evangelical family, then leaving it behind for secular Hollywood, Schaeffer learned to see the world as aesthetic and contemplative rather than scientific. By embracing mystery and love, he suggests the two movements can exist side-by-side: It is possible to buck the trend of cynicism and to believe in each other more than in the rightness of our particular ideas.

---

Sounds intriguing. Anybody read it or anything else by the author?

I like the idea of hopeful uncertainty. It's kind of where I am, and where a lot of people I know are. And mysteries are cool. At least when I watch Scooby Doo with my 5 year old.

I found the book used on Amazon for less than $4 with free shipping thanks to Amazon Prime. I'll have it in a few days.

I think I'll pass. I really don't need someone else's confusing thoughts cluttering up my head.

I Am Better Than Your Kids by Maddox

Great coffee table book containing critiques of children's artwork. The Alphabet of Manliness didn't live up to my hopes, and this one didn't win me right away, but now that I'm further in (half-way at this point), I've had quite a few laughs. Good stuff.

The Eye of the World

Yes, now that I have my Kindle, I've finally started re-reading The Wheel of Time. Hopefully I'll time it right and finish reading what's available right before the final book is released. Fingers crossed that I'll think it was worth the wait.
