Sincerelyornot of Oregon, 10/3/2011
This is the kind of book that you put in the bathroom and savor one chapter at a time. My favorite is chapter one, a mighty fortress by Martin Luther. I enjoy books that straddle more than one aspect of knowledge, and this one manages to cover music, history, and theology in bite-sized chapters.
