New Books

A friend gave me three new books just this week. I can't wait to dig into them after I'm done with the 'required reading' for class (I did a little dance last night when I finally finished Meredith Klines Kingdom Prologue).

I've never read anything by Goldsworthy before, but he comes highly recommended. I'd like to takle this one before the semester begins, but that seems a little lofty!






I've read lots of books on spirituality, but this one looks to be a unique look at Biblial models of spirituality.








I've been looking forward to getting this for months. It will be a delayed gratification, cause I'm putting it off until I get the other two read, but the first book in this series, which I mentioned in my sermon on Habakkuk, was great - if you're into church history.




Oh yeah, before I read any of these, I'm going to make it a point to read a work of fiction. Maybe the Lord of the Rings, which I've never actually read!

More power to you if you get through LOTR before the semester starts.

The spiritualty book's caught my eye. I'm curious about what is has to say.

doug, i think i sense a lack of faith -- just because you read the first part and then quit... ((though, you do get credit for going back))

dan -- this just made my day! yes, definitely read LOTR, that's my vote :) and if you ever want to chat about it...

hmmmm, this makes me want to read it again...

Ha ha... not a lack of faith... my Leviticus loving friend. More of a quiet confidence in my appreciation of Dan's character.

Dan...fiction...yes! LOTR...yes! You're heading in a good direction--I like this! A holiday from abstraction. I expect to hear Tom Bombadil or Ghân-buri-Ghân used as a sermon illustration. :) And no, you're just not allowed to look them up on Wikipedia. Keep us posted on your progress!
