A Few New Books I am Reading

September 21, 2009

n + 1: recession – always entertaining and insightful look into current cultural trends.

When Church Was a Family – one of the best books I have read on the nature of the church. Well-written, academic but with very practical application.

Transforming Worldviews (Hiebert) – can’ read enough of this outstanding missiologist! Insightful, robust, gospel and culture savvy.

A Faith Worth Sharing (Miller) – collected reflections on Jack Miller’s experience of sharing the gospel. Personal, warm, and in no way intimidating.

Anathem (Stephenson) – a fiction author I’ve been wanting to read for some time. Two friends, Jason Ford and AJ Hamilton have highly recommended Stephenson, also the author of the breakthru novel Snow Crash.

The Holy Spirit (Owen) – often known for his work on limited atonement and mortification of sin, Owen is more widely known as the theologian of the Spirit. This comes out in his other works, and he has two main volumes on the Spirit in his collected Works.

    Very cool man. I really appreciated Miller’s writing. Apparently the young hitchhiker became his son-in-law and is now a missionary.
