Summer is now upon us (I understand it’s the greatest week and a half of our lives here in Canada), and that means three things:
- It’s going to be sticky and hot in my house for the next three months (it’s old and lacks air conditioning)
- I’m actually going to take some real time off this summer (three days next week and one week in August, I think)
- It’s time for a Summer reading list!
I really dig books, so much so that I have a backlog of things to read (I’ve got the pile down to 9 or so). I want to get through at least some of these.
Here’s what’s on the list:
- Lord, Change My Attitude by James MacDonald
- God’s Passion for His Glory by John Piper
- The Complete C.S. Lewis Signature Classics by, obviously, C.S. Lewis (I’m partly through Mere Christianity now—note, this contains seven books)
- The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis
- The Apostolic Fathers
- Leading with Love by Alexander Strauch
- The Confessions by Augustine
- The Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin
- Selections from the Spurgeon Sermon Archives
My question for you, my friends out there, is which should I read first? Or is there a book that needs to be added to the list?
