Balaam's Ass Speaks
LEISURE AND GOOD VANITY:
Solomon told us in Ecclesiastes to enjoy good food and to enjoy our spouse
and family. There is evil vanity which is based on sin, and there is
good vanity which has no spiritual reward but which is needed as we deal
with our humanity. This list will include anything from how to cure
impotence to how to find a camp site in Yellowstone. If you think it
unspiritual to stop and smell the roses, go chase yourself. This list
of books is for real saints who need diversion from time to time.
