December was a good month for reading – a full month back at IVP/SPCK, and lots of interesting things. Here are Ten Things I think other people should read.
- David Firth’s Including the Stranger – a timely and brilliantly put together book about God’s plan for ethnic diversity. TLDR? Read this!
- An interview with N. T. Wright in The Atlantic. TLDR? Really good introduction to the man and his thought.
- N. T. Wright’s History and Eschatology – a new technical book from a prolific theologian. TLDR? An imperfect contender for book of the year.
- An interesting TGC article from 2015 on the value of abstinence. TLDR? Read this for part of an orthodox sexual ethic.
- Mez McConnell’s The Creaking on the Stairs. TLDR? A superb book about childhood abuse and Christian responses.
- Can we raise the Dead like Jesus did? TLDR? A thoughtful perspective from TGC, complementing my own post on #WakeUpOlive
- Noel Fitzpatrick’s Listening to the Animals. TLDR? Like the Supervet? You’ll love this. An interesting and readable autobiography.
- Wright also had a great piece in TIME about heaven. TLDR? The New Testament probably doesn’t say what you think it does.
- Fleming Rutledge’s Advent is a beautiful collection of sermons. TLDR? The only Advent book you’ll ever need.
- That Christianity Today editorial. TLDR? Read it.
