Ok,

I saw this game on Facebook, and it is kinda interesting. Here are the rules

Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence .
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

May I suggest you do this once a day, when you see the thread, if so inclined.

Here is my offering...

"Without raising the question of whether such variations can be related to hypothetical literary documents, we will turn directly to the question of the role these variations play in the composition of the Pentateuch."

The Pentateuch as Narrative, John Sailhamer (I had two books equally close and about as interesting. Dang, do I really have a life?)

For example the letter n makes a sound as in the word no, but the letters p and n together also make the identical sound, such as in pneumonia.

My wife is studying to become a medical transcriptionist to go with her STNA and EMT licenses/certificates. With us having 5 kids (and one on the way) this is the easiest way for her to continue to work in the medical field...especially with me being a Soldier...and the moves we often have to make.
