My teaser today is mainly aimed at a Christian audience, though those of other faiths or beliefs may find it intriguing and are invited to join along too.

I am quoting from the masterpiece, "Jesus the Christ," written by the fabulous orator and stimulating teacher, James E. Talmage, a man who devoted his life to the study of the holy scriptures. To this day, Jesus the Christ survives as one of the leading commentaries on the life of Jesus and contains a lifetime of study and reflection within its pages.

I have read it through from cover to cover once, and am slowly making my way through it a second time.


Here's the teaser:

"The only instance of of offspring from woman dissociated from mortal fatherhood is the birth of Jesus the Christ, who was the earthly Son of a mortal mother, begotten by an immortal Father. He is the Only Begotten of the Eternal Father in the flesh, and was born of woman."


You may need to rub your eyes and read that again! Mr. Talmage goes on to explain further in the book, but this teaser will suffice. 

I am enjoying Teaser Tuesdays a lot. It's a great couple of hours of my day to visit all of your blogs to see what you're reading. I also appreciate the visits and comments over here. Have a great week ahead and happy reading!

The 9/11 Commission Report - Teaser Tuesday (21 Oct. 2014)

Last week I shared a teaser from Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days," which I'm still reading this week. In fact, I'm 'half way through' quite a number of books, of both fact, fiction, and somewhere in between.

And it is somewhere in between that I'm sharing for Teaser Tuesday today.


The 9/11 Commission Report - The Attack from Planning to Aftermath is proclaimed as the authorized text on the whole dark saga. Here is the teaser:

"The threat of terrorists hijacking commercial airliners within the United States - and using them as guided missiles - was not recognized by NORAD before 9/11 . . . . . On the morning of 9/11, the existing protocol was unsuited in every respect for what was about to happen."

NORAD refers to the North American Aerospace Defence Command.


It's a very interesting read, though I highly doubt the truth behind all the events of that fateful day are contained in the pages of this book. Of that I don't think we will ever know. It remains, however, that hundreds of innocent people lost their lives on that day.


What are your thoughts on 9/11? Did you find the teaser intriguing? Eye-opening? Would you read the book?

"Mrs. Aouda thanked her deliverers profusely, by her tears more than by her words. Her beautiful eyes, rather than her lips, were the interpreters of her gratitude."
