Here's what I've been reading recently, summed up in 140 characters or less.
On the Priesthood by John Chrysostom
This early church father makes withering observations about the trials of the priesthood even while commending it. So well written.
"All's Well the Ends Well" by William Shakespeare
"A good wife, who can find?" says the Proverb. This is a story about a good wife who keeps on finding her man, who doesn't appreciate her.
The Road to Missional by Michael Frost
I rarely read book-length rants nowadays. This was an exception. Funny. Authoritative. Frost motivates us to keep moving toward "missional."
Wired for Intimacy by William Struthers
Pornography has a significant effect on the male brain. Struthers explains the science behind what happens and what we can do about it.
Singles at the Crossroads by Al Hsu
Not a book on dating. Best book on singleness I've ever read. Theological, insightful and practical.
Mealtime Habits of the Messiah by Conrad Gempf
40 vignettes on the life of Jesus. Professor Gempf approaches the Bible from wonderful and unique angles, really bringing him to life.
Too Busy Not to Pray by Bill Hybels
We all experience barriers to prayer. Hybels chooses two or three and demolishes them: why pray, getting started, keeping it going
Matthew by Stanley Hauerwas
A gritty, academic, poetic, neo-Mennonite commentary. Hauerwas writes like a Church Father born into a family of Texas bricklayers.
The Republic by Plato
Pure classical philosophy. featuring Utopian social constructions, rich metaphors and the definitive example of the Socratic method.
