What are you reading?

What are you reading? This question has opened many doors for me to explore topics and issues that I may have never studied. Let us hear from you what you are reading outside of your regular preaching resources. Currently, I’m working through the following:

  • God, Marriage, and Family by Andreas Kostenberger
  • The Book of Torah: The Narrative Integrity of the Pentateuch by Thomas Mann
  • The Art of Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays by Wendell Berry
  • Baptism in the Early Church by Everett Ferguson
  • Gardening When it Counts: Growing Food in Hard Times by Steve Solomon
  • Israelology: The Missing Link in Systematic Theology by Arnold Fruchtenbaum
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Dominion and Dynasty: A Theology of the Hebrew Bible by Stephen Dempster

  3. Paul,
    I am going to preach through portions of Genesis, Exodus, and Leviticus soon. Are the Mann and Dempster books worth using?

  4. Spencer,

    Dempster is very good. I’m still working through Mann so can’t say. He seems very good at capturing the narrative flow of the Pentateuch. He’s not traditional/conservative on some critical issues but these are not the general focus of his work.

    I noticed that you are reading Everett Ferguson’s “Baptism in the Early Church.” I think his research and scholarship on this subject is excellent – almost as thorough as Beasely-Murray. Thanks for the list!
