2011 Reading List

December 9, 2010

Mark Twain once said, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.”

But that has absolutely nothing to do with this post. I’m working on putting together my 2011 reading list. I put together a tentative list for 2010, but because I never finished it, I never read the books. So, this year I want to make it official, announce it to the entire (cyber) world.

So, I want to know what I should include on the list. Do you have any favorite books you’d like me to read? A hilarious novel or deep work of theology? Perhaps a classic or two? Post your suggestions and see if they make the list!

    Definitely “The Inescapeable Love of God” by Thomas Talbott, a must read! It will definitely stretch your thinking!

    He argues that no one can freely chose something that is self-evidently in their own worst interest. Once individuals have been confronted with the reality of God’s complete love and acceptance of them, they have no grounds for chosing to reject His love. Such a choice, to reject God, is so irrational that it cannot be called a “free” choice. Rejection of God is only possible when we are under some sort of delusion and is, therefore, not truly a free choice. When we see God as He is we will freely love Him because how could we not? Seems to be Paul’s experience on the road to Damascus. This book brought hope that it’s really true that God can save the worst of sinners!

    Talbott is a professor of philosophy and religion at a university in Oregon and eagerly embraces his belief in Jesus and a love for Christianity. His background in philosophy allows him to apply the best logic ,I’ve ever heard or read, to the study of Christianity.
