. The Lonely Polygamist . . Brady Udall . .

. . Hey folks, I just read a new book called "The Lonely Polygamist" by Brady Udall. It is a novel, and this tome is maxing out at 500 pages plus, BUT, I read it just about straight through.

I want to recommend this book, but I will tell you, this is not a ‘Christian’ book, so you need to approach it as such. There are a number of varying themes of interest to our community, and some insights that will help in your decision on your approach to Christian plural marriage.

I will be using this thread to provide you the links for this book, which is expected to be reviewed by the New York Times next week.

Here is the first link from Salon.com

Hello from Milwaukee Wisconsin

I have been very lonely because I seemed to understand the Bible better than everyone. I am not proud to make that statement. It is just that people would not be willing to accept what the scriptures plainly say. I thought I do not know the Bible very well and need to know it better, there must be someone who can teach me.

I really prayed to find a woman who I can talk about scripture with, because no one seemed to understand me. I have been very lonely looking for someone.

I was almost completely certain that polygamy was not directly forbidden anywhere in scripture. But I was not sure if it was directly stated to be allowed, although I felt it probably states that it is allowed somewhere since it is too big a question for God to leave unanswered and it was certainly not directly forbidden in decent English translations that I have seen.

After being on this site only a little while I found the answer to my question. Polygamy is allowed in the scripture.

I finally found people, who I can talk about the Bible with and who I can understand and be understood by. I feel that I finally have people who are able to teach me more about the Bible, just like I have been praying for.

Even though I am not yet married I do not feel lonely anymore since I found people I could relate to.

I am very thankful for this website.

I am probably not looking to get married until at least 2012 for financial reasons, but if God provides the means and the woman or women I would have no problem getting married earlier.

Being lonely I developed a very bad habit of spending to much time on the internet, just looking for someone who I could relate to.

So right now I am trying to overcome my bad habit. I might just post once a week or so, because I am busy working on my Thesis.

So everyone feel free to send me emails if you want to talk to me about anything. But I might just try to do emails on personal matters non-school/non-work related matters once a week or so.

And especially feel free to send m…
