I was able to finish God is the Gospel by John Piper just before Christmas and finished Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen at 11:10pm on New Year’s Eve.
Here’s my reading list for 2009. I wonder how many I’ll get through this year? (in no particular order)
Have been on my shelf/reading list for WAY too long and need to read:
Captivating by John and Stasi Elredge (tops on the list by recommendation of my wife)
2. One of the Philip Yancey books we have:
The Jesus I Never Knew, The Bible Jesus Read (the book, not the participant’s guide), and we have at least one other…
Other books on my reading wish list:
One of Rob Bell’s works: SexGod, Velvet Elvis, etc.
2. The Life and Diary of David Brainerd by Jonathan Edwards (yet another biography)
Knowing God by J.I. Packer
4. At least one work by a Puritan writer – John Owen, Richard Baxter, etc.
5. Taste and See by John Piper
6. A Practical View of Christianity by William Wilberforce
7. Calvinism: A Southern Baptist Dialogue by Brad J. Waggoner and E. Ray Clendenen
8. Why We’re Not Emergent: By Two Guys Who Should Be by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck
1. A Purpose-Driven Youth Ministry by Doug Fields and Rick Warren
2. One or both of the following by Brennan Manning: The Ragamuffin Gospel and/or Abba’s Child
– I’ll probably read a Cussler book or two (The Navigator, Treasure of Kahn, etc.)
– I’ll most likely read at least one of John Grisham’s latest (
The Appeal and/or the one coming out in January 09: The Associate)
– I may attempt another of Jane Austen’s works. If so, most likely it would be Emma.
– Several years ago I read (mostly) through Ben Hur and I’m sure my wife would like me to finish that one, too. We’ll see.
The Soul of Baseball: A Road Trip Through Buck O’Neil’s America by Joe Posnanski
