Here are the first sentences of the books I have with me right now -- all the others are in my car or at home:1.

"The train came out of the long tunnel into the snow country."4. "Not many years ago when I was an atheist, if anyone had asked me, 'Why do you not believe in God?' my reply would have run something like this: 'Look at the universe we live in....'"
