    After two months on the hold list at the library, I finally have Oathbringer, the third Stormlight Archive audiobook to listen to (brandonsanderson.com/books/the-stormlight-archive/), so all my non-fiction is on hold until I finish it as per my usual habit.

    What's on my audiobook playlist lately:
    Confessions of St Augustine
    Summa Theologica
    Institutes of the Christian Religion

    Those are... Not the best translations, unfortunately. They are hard to follow sometimes. I think I'm going to end up reading the ebooks eventually, especially if I can get a more recent translation. I also have Cold Case Christianity and The End of Faith (which I'd just started when Oathbringer became available) which I'll listen to next. I've listened to very little of The End of Faith, and I'm not impressed at all so far.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    Thank you for your response. I can recall years ago listening to a podcast with Preston Sprinkle and Chris Date on Rethinking Hell (RH). Whilst then a traditionalist (2012, I believe), Preston seemed reasonably open-minded to the doctrine of annihilationism. (The past few years I have largely avoided conditionalist websites such as Afterlife [<https://www.afterlife.co.nz>] and RH [http://www.rethinkinghell.com].)
    [I]f what you have heard from the beginning remains in you, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. … The one who has the Son has the life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. (1 Jn 2.24; 5.12, LEB)

    I've started re-reading The Crook in the Lot by Thomas Boston. I've had some...stuff...going on lately, which I think will put this book in a bit of a new light for me.
