31 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 20

The book that I read that has altered my perception of life is…

I read but I don’t read a lot. When I was younger I would say it was L. Frank Baum’s, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I learned a lot about the symbolism. For instance I learned that Oz was the abbreviation for ounces and the yellow brick road symbolized gold and the entire book was a commentary on greed.

Today I would say it is the Bible. I am getting a clearer understanding of what the Bible is saying as opposed to my misconceptions of something I talked about but never really knew what it was I was talking about. Lots of people, like myself “know” about Christianity but have never even bothered to research and find out for themselves. I am learning a lot from reading and learned lots when I was out in California this past December. It’s very interesting. I particularly like the book of John.
