Here are a few of the things I read and enjoyed last month!
- The New Statesman ran a provocative article about how Coronavirus is history-changing. TLDR? Change happens. Humans are not invincible. The EU might be over.
- Lucy Peppiatt’s Rediscovering Scripture’s Vision for Women is brilliant. TLDR? An excellent short case for ‘egalitarianism’.
- Natalie Collins has a powerful article for CEASE about pornography, violence and abuse at the present time. TLDR? The Coronavirus crisis reveals human sin.
- Eugene Peterson’s A Long Obedience in the Same Direction is a modern classic for a reason. TLDR? Read this book at this time!
- Sharon Hastings wrote a poignant piece for Christian Today about suffering and God’s sovereignty. TLDR? Read this, from the excellent author of Wrestling With My Thoughts.
- Matthew Barrett’s None Greater. TLDR? A great book about God. You need to read it!
- Over at Theos, Nick Spencer has a good question about Clapping for the NHS: Our New Religion? TLDR? We need to be careful of idolatry, because we are human.
- Wright and Bird’s The New Testament in it’s World. TLDR? Seriously long, but seriously helpful.
- Brett Gray wrote an excellent blog for SCM about God‘s sovereignty. TLDR? Super, super stuff. Real Calvinism.
- John Starke’s superb The Possibility of Prayer is a new book on prayer. TLDR? This one is really good.
And a bonus, because I’m SO EXCITED about it – I’ve worked on something recently, and you can read about it in this post about three books for our Coronavirus time.
