BOOKS STILL CHANGE THE WORLD
Posted by Jud Wilhite: Here’s my reading list for 2010. I should warn you though—I’m a geek. I read books by dead people for fun and when I don’t, I start to get cranky.
This isn’t exhaustive, but I plan to get through these books.
City of God, Augustine. This is a tomb of a book and I’ve read parts of it. This year I plan to read through all of it, along with some help by Gerard O’Daly and his Augustine’s City of God: A Reader’s Guide. This will likely take me many months as I read multiple books at a time.
The Enchiridion on Faith, Hope, and Love, Augustine. This is a smaller book Augustine wrote to a friend on key belief and practice issues. The term “enchiridion” just means handbook.
Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design, Stephen C. Meyer. This promises to be an interesting look at intelligent design for the general reader.
There Is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind, Anthony Flew. I did doctoral work in philosophy and often turned to Flew’s dictionary of philosophy for help. I’ve wanted to read this since it was released.
Christianity’s Dangerous Idea, Alistair McGrath. I’m halfway through this history of Protestantism and plan to finish it in 2010.
The Christian in Complete Armour, William Gurnall. I hope to work through at least the first of this three volume classic of puritan literature. It is one of those books that I’ve known about for years, but I’ve never really attempted to read it.
I’m also reading through the New Testament on YouVersion with my wife!
Have any of you read these books? Any other great books you’d recommend for the future?
