Happy Birthday, Lew Wallace!

I haven’t done a Birthday post in ages, methinks. Anyway, I don’t know how many of you can recall this author; but you have definitely heard of his book/movie made on it; Ben Hur. I first read this book when I was 11 and re-read it maybe 7 – 8 years later. It is a fantastic work in every sense, the style of writing, the language, the intrigue, and the portrayal of Jesus as a man.

Wikipedia tells me that apart from an author, he was a lawyer, a war general, a politician, a statesman, and a territorial Governor! Sheesh! I say, what has happened of men now, almost always, they are hardly good at any of those!

Dapper!
