Summer Reading List

Yesterday I realized that I have read 12 books this summer. I have a few weeks left to squeeze in a couple more. I’m currently on What Is the Bible? by Rob Bell. Here is a look at what I’ve read so far:

  • Like a Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan at the Crossroads by Greil Marcus
    • I started this *before* I knew Bob was coming to Sugar Land in October.
  • In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership by Henri J.M. Nouwen
    • For Fall seminary class. The second time I’ve read it.
  • #NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line by David and Lauren Hogg
    • These kids have some wisdom to share.
  • Is Nothing Sacred? by Marie M. Fortune
    • Also for Fall seminary class. This story has interesting parallels to the story coming out of Willow Creek.
  • Mentoring for Ministry by Craig T. Kocher (ed.)
  • Reading the Bible Again for the First Time: Taking the Bible Seriously but Not Literally by Marcus J. Borg
  • Triune Atonement: Christ’s Healing for Sinners, Victims, and the Whole Creation by Andrew Sung Park
    • This was a book I read for a paper on atonement theories last semester.
  • Unbelievable: Why Neither Ancient Creeds Nor the Reformation Can Produce a Living Faith Today by John Shelby Spong
  • Hey Mom: Stories for My Mother, But You Can Read Them Too by Louie Anderson
    • If you haven’t seen “Baskets” on FX you need to.
  • A Black Theology of Liberation by James H. Cone
    • I bought this book like a week before Dr. Cone passed.
  • Waco: A Survivor’s Story by David Thibodeau, Leon Whiteson
  • The Four Gospels on Sunday: The New Testament and the Reform of Christian Worship by Gordon W. Lathrop
