A Reading List For 2015

January 7, 2015 — 1 Comment

booksGene Veith said, “One thing, however is certain: Reading can never die out among Christians. This is because the whole Christian revelation centers around a Book.” Serious reading is a lost discipline.  There is no shortage of distractions to keep us from reading.  We can tweet, text, and email away our lives without giving any time to God and His Word or cultivating the discipline of reading good books.  Thoreau said, “Read the best books first or you may not have a chance to read them at all.”  The books on my 2015 reading list may not be the best books, but they are good books and I they will be a blessing to you.

One response to A Reading List For 2015

  1. Almost halfway through living by revealed truth, can hardly put it down!! And Waldrons commentary on the 1689, is on the way just ordered this week! I’m trying to make myself read, since it hasn’t always been a favorite thing for me, but I’m taking some classes through Founders Ministries and having to read a lot!! Will consider some of your other recommendations. God bless.
