How many years have you been collecting UR books?

(Even though every time I see it bump up on the active list I tend to misread it as "Snippets from my HARD CORE UR library"... But that works, too! )

Not sure if you take "requests" ( ) but I'm particularly interested to read how these specific writers you quote have handled the issue of God being thwarted in His efforts to save us because of our own free will.
Just read (for our mens book club discussion group that meets every other month) Richard Rohr's "FALLING UPWARD" and his section titled "HEAVEN" AND "HELL" where he seems to follow Rob Bell fairly closely until this...."God excludes no one from union, but must allow us to exclude ourselves in order for us to maintain our freedom."
Needless to say, to sweep away the possibility of UR with just one sentence like this was a major disappointment!! That we would be "allowed" to "choose" such a heinous and painful and destructive future seems to ignore entirely the very real possibility of delusion and illusion which themselves need to be shattered in order for us to truly BE FREE
Anyway, will keep reading and thanks again for these quotes!
