    2. You’d a busy reading year. Anything stand out above the rest?

    3. I didn’t have any disappointments, so I’d recommend them all.

      Having heard much about David Brainerd I was glad to read his diary and the notes from Edwards. It was a good, hard, challenging read both emotionally and spiritually.

      At least regarding the American church, I thought Thabiti’s book on the Decline of African-American Theology was enlightening regarding some problems I see in the current church context regardless of cultural background. I don’t know how much that may apply to church cultures outside America.

      Finally, I’d say that Joshua Harris’s Dug Down Deep was well worth the read and I plan to recommend that one to MANY people. He’s such a good writer and compels the reader to leave the “shallow” end of Christianity and wade out into the deep end of theology to know God.

      How about you?
