This was a fantastic beginning to a Batman storyline. There was great character development and action. You're left wondering what the Joker's real past was, and look wanting the next edition immediately.
The last time I watched this movie was years ago, and I forgot how much I enjoy it. The identity of the man behind the plot wasn't much of a surprise, but this was a good story with good laughs as well. (Like when Oda's room was full of spirits)
Having read a few of Bart Ehrman's books, I expected this to be an examination of the books that did not make it in to the New Testament. However, it is basically a collection of translations of the books. If you're interested in reading the text of the scriptures Ehrman mentions in his other books, this is a good source. It is clearly explained to be a companion to his other book, Lost Christianities, so you may want to request both books simultaneously. I recommend reading the Gospel of Thecla to hear about the man-eating seals that Thecla escapes.
This is one of my favorite magazines. Not only do they cover recent scientific discoveries, changes on the horizon, and interesting information on the focus topic, but they do so in an amusing way.
This book was riveting and easy to connect to. Although I never had such extensive dental work, I know about the repeated pain of having your braces tightened just as your teeth start to feel okay again, and she did a great job relating the experiences. Raina did very well balancing the events that called for more detail, and summarizing what happened with other situations. It was wonderful to see what happened with her friends, as I was very bothered with how they behaved. I even found myself near tears more than once.
I haven't read many graphic novels, or biographies, but now this is easily my favorite book in both genres.
