Currently Reading

 

Richard Cunningham, Serving the Church, Reaching the World: Essays in Honor of Don Carson 

Graeme Goldsworth, Christ-Centered Biblical Theology

Charles Taylor, A Secular Age

Clifford Williams, Existential Reasons for Belief in God

 

Recently Read

Giorgio Agamben, Homo Sacer | State of Exception | Stasis: Civil War as a Political Paradigm | The Sacrament of Language: An Archaeology of the Oath — These four have been heavy reading over the past months. I am hoping to finish all nine by the end of the year. A professor at school loves Agamben’s work, and so by extension I have been interested enough to take up his series on political philosophy.

Richard Mouw, He Shines in All That’s Fair — a quick read (100 pages) explaining the Reformed concept of Common Grace in its historical-developmental context and how it fits with Intralapsarianism and Supralapsarianism. He also talks about the so-called ‘Creation Mandate’ in Genesis 1:28 and 2:15, which I found helpful.

 

 

To Read Soon

Giorgio Agamben, Kingdom and Glory

Giorgio Agamben, Opus Dei: An Archeology of Duty

Matthew Levering, Was the Reformation a Mistake? Why Catholic Doctrine is Not Unbiblical

 

All Time Best

Kevin DeYoung, Just Do Something – Read this if you have ever asked the question, “What is God’s will for me?” This is the best bit of practical theology I have ever read.

Matt Chandler, Explicit Gospel – One of my favorites. A must-read for any Christian who preaches or otherwise holds a consistent public speaking platform.

Joseph Heller, Catch-22 – My favorite work of fiction. Read this in middle school and really should reread it now.
