Summer Reading

Summer is a great time to catch up on some reading.  For those interested, here is my reading list:

During my time in Orlando I read Richard Bauckham’s Theology of the Book of Revelation.  I am thinking of preaching through Revelation, and had heard of Bauckham’s work.  It did not disappoint.  It was fanatstic!  I also read Voddie Baucham’s What He Must Be, If He Wants to Marry My Daughter.  I didn’t agree with everything Voddie had to say, but the seven, "He must be’s" were so good that we are going over them one at a time in family worship.

I hope to get to a few biographies this summer.  I started. The Life of A.W. Tozer:  In Pursuit of God.  I’ve always loved Tozer.  On vacation I hope to read Dermott McColloch’s Thomas Cranmer and Herman Selderhuis’ John Calvin:  A Pilgrim’s Life.  Another biography I hope to get to is that great reformer, Eliot Ness, the True Story

I am usually too ambitious on vacation, but I also want to read Marshall‘s The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification, Four Views on the Book of Revelation, and D.B. Wallace’s Granville Sharp’s Canon and its Kin (a book on Greek grammar).  I would also like to finish Calvin’s Institutes, Books III and IV.  But we will see.

Pick up a good book this summer and read!  Ariel is going to finish Feelings and Faith :-)
