The Glorious Adventure: Through the Mediterranean in the Wake of Odysseus. Halliburton’s classic travel book. “‘The Glorious Adventure’ was Halliburton’s second book, and details how he set out to follow in the path of Ulysses, as described in the Odyssey. The resultant book does not have a dull page. It details how Halliburton roamed the Mediterranean Sea searching for adventure and romance, both of which he was happy to report were still in abundant supply.

  1. Dalrock has a different take on Courageous which he calls “craven”
    as he did on FireBombed (fireproof)

    The man is always at fault, can never really be the head, who cares about what the bible says?

    At least two recent Redoubt famous men have been divorced because, well, we have matriarchal “man-fault” divorce laws. Firebomb’s message is they should have given into their wife’s every whim. Craven says all men are bad fathers.

    Read Dalrock’s reviews (spoilers) and decide for yourself if these movies are from God or have some serpentine twists.
