Summer Reading List – 2012

I thought I would share a few books that I’ve either started reading or hope to read this summer.  I’ve been so focused on finishing the Bible in a year (just a few days left) that I haven’t had time to reach much of anything else.

Please let us know what you are hoping to read this summer and if you decide to buy any of the below books, please click on the image so that the Westchester Men’s Ministry gets a donation for your purchase (through our Amazon Associates program).  Thanks!

Have a great summer!

Created for Community      Deep Things of God      I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist     The Confessions of St. Augustine     God, Freedom and Evil    King's Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus     Muslims, Christians, and Jesus: Gaining Understanding and Building Relationships

I’ve already read a few chapters of ‘Created for Community’ and ‘God, Freedom, and Evil’ and I would recommend them both.  Plantinga is harder to read but very insightful.

Both ‘The Deep Things of God’ and ‘The Confessions of Saint Augustine’ were recommended by people I trust and I have no doubt they will be worth reading.

I choose ‘I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist’ and ‘Muslim, Christians, and Jesus’ without others feedback, and I haven’t opened them yet, so I really can’t vouch for them.   If there is interest, I will add an update once I start reading them.

As far as Tim Keller’s book is concerned, I’m a huge fan of Keller’s and I loved his first book.  This is his second (or third) book and he has already come out with another one on marriage.  So I’m behind but I have no concerns about recommending him.  I would also encourage you visit Redeemer Presbyterian’s website to hear some of his sermons.  He is a fantastic speaker.

So, your reading list may not be as ambitious as mine but What Are You Reading?  I’d be very interested to know.  Thanks in advance for sharing!

  1. Some great additional book recommendations on Reddit. Here is the link: http://www.reddit.com/r/Christianity/comments/vlg1k/summer_reading_list_what_are_you_reading/

  2. Read all of these now but ‘The Confessions of Saint Augustine. Going to start that now. I guess it was more of a Summer/Fall reading list. Merry Christmas!

  3. By the way, I would recommend them all except for ‘I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist’.
