I’m an avid reader and writer. It would explain why I enjoy blogging so much. There are certain times – tell me if I’m the only one – when I get into several books at once: books I’m reading at different paces for different purposes, books that I find rewarding in different ways. Now is one of those times. And since I’m thoroughly enjoying and/or learning from all of them, I thought I’d leave a record of them here. Maybe one will pique your interest, too. Listed in order of author’s last name:
Jim Berg, Created for His Glory – A challenging and inspiring in-depth look at God’s precious promises in the first three chapters of Ephesians.
Michael Medved, Right Turns – This book truly is a splendid read, full of autobiographical insights, from one of the American conservative movement’s most likeable and thoughtful figures.
Mark Noll, America’s God: from Jonathan Edwards to Abraham Lincoln – Perhaps the best religious history I’ve ever read, up there with Sydney Ahlstrom’s masterwork and Nathan Hatch’s Democratization of American Christianity.
Steven Pressfield, Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae – A poignant page-turner penned by someone with a passion for the warrior’s life and knowledge of ancient Greek history and culture. A big hat tip to Hugh.
Stuart Scott, The Exemplary Husband: A Biblical Perspective – Systematic, Scripturally-sound, and personal insights into fulfilling the role of husband as God designed. I’m working my way through this slowly and thoughtfully. There’s a lot to learn and grow in!
