TRACEY'S FAVORITE BOOKS:
Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
"Like Adam, I was apparently united by no link to any other being in existence; but his state was far different from mine in every other respect. He had come forth from the hands of God a perfect creature, happy and prosperous, guarded by a special care of his Creator; he was allowed to converse with and acquire knowledge from beings of a superior nature, but I was wretched, helpless, and alone. . . . Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours more horrid even from the very resemblance. Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhord." --Frankenstein's Monster
Orthodoxy, G. K. Chesterton
"This is the thrilling romance of Orthodoxy. People have fallen into a foolish habit of speaking of Orthodoxy as something heavy, humdrum and safe. There never was anything so perilous and exciting as Orthodoxy. It was sanity: and to be sane is more dramatic than to be mad."
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, C. S. Lewis
"A mad chase began. Round and round the hilltop he led them, now hopelessly out of their reach, now letting them almost catch his tail, now diving between them, now tossing them in the air with his huge and beautifully velveted paws, and now stopping unexpectedly so that now all three of the them rolled over together in a happy laughing heap of fur and arms and legs. It was such a romp as no one has ever had except in Narnia; and whether it was more like playing with a thunderstorm or playing with a kitten, Lucy could never make up her mind."
A Refutation of Moral Relativism, Peter Kreeft
"No other society in history has ever survived without rejecting moral relativism and believing in moral absolutes. . . . Therefore, this society will either disprove one of the most universally established laws of history, or repent of its relativism and survive, or persist in its relativism and perish." (I love Pete)
