Saturday Book List

Lately I've been keeping a list of books that I think I might want to read someday. Actually, it's about 7 different lists. There's one list for the Christian/Biblical studies/devotional type reading, another for general history, another for fiction, one specifically for WWII in the Pacific (a recently acquired fascination), one for geography, and one for sports. I'll probably add a couple more before I'm done!

So, whether I'm browsing Amazon or my local Borders (or, more likely, the shelves of my local library), reading reviews online, or noting the reading recommendations of bloggers like Trevin Wax or Semicolon (among many others), I've always got an eye for titles to add to my lists. So what follows is a brief selection of titles from what I'll call my Things of the Spirit reading list:

Holy Subversion, by Trevin Wax
Mere Churchianity, by Michael Spencer
Introducing Paul, by Michael S. Bird
The Mission of God, by Christopher J. H. Wright
The Open Secret, by Lesslie Newbigin
Exiles, by Michael Frost
The Forgotten Ways, by Alan Hirsch
The Gospel in Genesis, by Martin Lloyd-Jones
Fifty-Seven Words that Change the World, by Darrell W. Johnson
It is finished, by Darrell W. Johnson
The Message of Acts in the History of Redemption, by Dennis E. Johnson
Reversed Thunder, by Eugene Peterson
Tell It Slant, by Eugene Peterson

This list is only a beginning. Suggestions are of course welcome.
