Life of Pi

I just started this book . . . again. This is my second time through Life of Pi. I read it, maybe, a year ago. I got a copy of the audiobook recently (thank you, Dan) and decided I would like to "read" it again.
I love this book. I remember it was such a thought provoking book. While listening today, I heard this . . .
"It is not atheists who get stuck in my craw, but agnostics. Doubt is useful for a while. We must all pass through the garden of Gethsemane. If Christ played with doubt, so must we. If Christ spent an anguished night in prayer, if He burst out from the Cross, 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?' then surely we are also permitted to doubt. But we must move on. To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation."

whoa! That IS thought provoking! And inspiring. Thanks for sharing. Maybe I could borrow your "book" when you've finished??
