1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

Hmm. Well this should be interesting. The nearest book was the dictionary, so I went and got the most recent one I had been reading. I know. Not exactly by the rules. (But I couldn’t bring myself to admit that when I went to my bookshelf to blindly choose a book, the one in my hands was Nicholas Sparks’ A Walk to Remember…)

From Soul Survivor: How Thirteen Unlikely Mentors Helped My Faith Survive the Chuch by Philip Yancey…Page 123, Chapter 6, Leo Tolstoy and Feodor Dostoevsky

     “As I look back now on the cloister of Southern fundamentalism in which I grew up, I wonder if perhaps I suffered from a narcissistic disorder.”

Interesting. Aren’t we all narcissists?

Fascinating book, by the way. Don’t let the quote above throw you off. The man is an incredibly intelligent, honest human being with thought-provoking insights into his soul.
