Desire of the Everlasting Hills

Desire of the Everlasting Hills by Thomas Cahill
The World Before and After Jesus

Like the last book that I read by Cahill, I mostly enjoyed this book. Still a little hard to see where he falls in his beliefs, but still sometimes a stronger faith than many of the modern devout I know. Dog-ears:
  • pg. 56 - brief biography of Octavian Caesar Augustus
  • pg. 166 - Revelation overview
  • pg. 167 - Jesus' indictment of the socio-religious establishment (relevant today)
  • pg. 185 - kindness over doctrine, would Christian history look different?
  • pg. 213 - explanations
  • pg. 247 - the eucharist in light of Matthew 25
  • pg. 248 - Dorothy Day excerpt
  • pg. 304 - being more than a political appendage or social decoration
  • pg. 313 - the Trastevere community
