Tolle! Lege! (My Reading List)

I love to read books. This is probably due to (or is the trigger of) my Learner impulse. As much as I love reading, the rest of 'life' tends to crowd out reading. So, I'm starting to hold myself to a rigorous plan above/beyond my daily Bible and blog reading... I thought I'd post it here so you might be exposed to some good titles and hopefully hold me accountable.

Currently Reading: James & 1 Kings, Christianity and Liberalism (Machen), The Supremecy of God in Preaching (Piper)

Future Reads ('**' indicates 'On Deck' ):

  • Thanks for the list. Giving me some good ideas. ;-)

    A thought. Occasionally, if you have a thought or two about a book, put in here. It doesn't have to be a full-blown review and definitely doesn't have to be for everything you read (I probably read 5 times as many books as I review on my blog).

  • I plan to, Brendt... I did chapter by chapter thoughts (rants?) on the last book I read. I don't think I'll repeat that formula, though.

    I should also note that these are only the serious things I'm reading... I'll have some fluff once in a while too!

  • does anyone else hear crickets.

    All the time, Anon... All the time.

    Or were you offering a title suggestion? If so, Amazon seems to have only a couple titles that fit "anyone else crickets". And neither tickles my fancy.

  • Can I suggest "The Almost Christian Discovered" by Matthew Mead (with John MacArthur foreword)? Those looking for a light read or a warm fuzzy - stay clear.

  • AJN - Thanks for the tip... Consider it added!
