Europe: A History Norman Davies
What can I say about this wonderful volume?! It's one of the all-time classics on the history of Europe, even though it was written just 10 years ago. With his enormous volume of source materials and an engaging writing style, Davies' book has surpassed any other I've read on Europe's history from ancient times through to the present. To be honest, this is a book I'm still reading, piece-by-piece, a little at a time. It's huge. I appreciate the way Davies has given Christianity its rightful place in the development of European culture. I can't speak highly enough of this one, so I'd better leave it there. Oh, BTW, this is not airplane reading -- even the paperback is heavier is almost as heavy as my small notebook PC...

Passion: I think it flew out the window the moment political correctnes reared its ugly head! So much in the world today is bland and lacking in intensity but I don't want to calm down! Ann, Australia
It was great to hear Mal teach at our church last night, he really made me think outside the box. His message was challenging and educational. A big thank you to everyone at Next Wave for all you do. Darran, United Kingdom
Hi Mal. I heard you last week on the radio when I was at work here in Amsterdam! Fun to hear your voice. Jolanda, Netherlands
