    Favorite Book: "The Case for the Real Jesus" by Lee Strobel

    "I read this book a couple of times and I'm still in doubt about Jesus Christ. But Jesus did a lot of wonderful things. He died on a cross; re-erected himself and moved the rock from a cave. No wonder we're still talking about Him. I don't know if it's all true, but the author does a good job describing it. He gives you the pro and con arguments...I also like reading about Edgar Cayce. The guy's mind was incredible--his mind was like a door into another world."
