Ain't Got Time to Blog

No link this time, just something I read in another blog (titled Ain't Got Time to Blog and hence the name of this post) and thought I would try. Evidently a book meme (I didn't know such things existed, but still trying to get a good handle on the whole "meme" concept and current usage, not that it is all that hard I figure, just haven't set down to look at it. In this context, it seems to be something to pass around and get thoughts moving.)
Anyway, the idea is to:

1. Chose the book closest to you at the moment.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the 3rd sentence
4. Post in your blog (plus the instructions)
5. Don't choose the book, just pick up the one closest to you.

Evidently, this is from some guy named Jonathan Sterne. So here we go...

"Often jurors hear impressive-sounding testimony about what appears to be scientifically valid proof, and they conclude-incorrectly-that it establishes the defendant's guilt."
Lee Strobel, The Case for Faith, MI: Zondervan, 2000.

That is the third sentence, unless I am not supposed to count the half sentence that started the page. Either way, it seems like a good one.
