What I’m Reading
Last updated: October 12th, 2017
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
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.
