Last call on suggestions and feedback. Participation in this process has been lacking, but thank you to those of you that have been involved. :)

How about Anton Lavey's "Satanic Bible?" To those of you reading this and freaking out...please relax. We could read and discuss it without becoming Satanist's or giving the world the impression we endorse Satanism. I've read The Satanic Bible years ago and still have a copy of the book. In think we would have some damn interesting discussions about Anton Lavey's life philosophy.


I think his story/philosophy might make for a good magazine article, but it sounds a little gimmicky to me. "Satanic" sounds cooler than "hedonist" even though it's not really Satan worshiping. JMHO

One of these days (soon) I will start a monthly newsletter using ConstantContact.com. Members can opt in or opt out. But once this monthly newsletter has started we will no longer send mass emails through the actual website. I think full-color HTML newsletters will have a better chance of getting more people involved in the book selection process.

This thread has been a bit disappointing. We need dozens of people participating in this process.

Shall we just announce The Moral Landscape as our January and February book?

I vote for:

Jesus Legend, The: A Case for the Historical Reliability of the Synoptic Jesus Tradition.

Honestly, I have not read this book so I may regret suggesting it but I think it is in a different mode than other BT discussionss, and we could probably get the author to answer questions.
