What Are You Reading: Summer 2010

Summer’s coming up quick and that means—the possibility of vacations! (Maybe.)

My internet friend Ben Reed just put together a summer reading list and it got me thinking about what I hope to read this summer.

With a couple of trips coming up that include roughly 20 hours of air travel, plus some time off in Grand Bend and a cottage in the “Deep North” with my dad and the family, it seems I’m going to have an opportunity to do some reading when I’m not playing and having fun with Abigail, Hannah and Emily.

So, without further ado, here’s the list:

Preaching & Preachers by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. I’ve read parts but never the whole thing and a friend kindly brought a copy home for me from Together for the Gospel.

Lectures to My Students by Charles Spurgeon. Again, another book I’ve read parts of, but haven’t finished.

Christ-Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Sermon by Bryan Chapell. A friend highly recommended putting this book near the top of my to-read pile. I may have to purchase a copy.

C. H. Spurgeon Autobiography Volume One: The Early Years, 1834-1859 & Volume 2: The Full Harvest, 1860-1892 by Charles Spurgeon. My mother-in-law lovingly purchased these for me at Christmas and I’ve been trying to find an opportunity to read them.

Switch by Chip & Dan Heath. It’s been on my to-read pile for a really long time.

The Armageddon Factor: The Rise of Christian Nationalism in Canada by Marci McDonald. As I explained last week, it looks hilarious! I really want to find out who the militant conservative Christians are in Canada and why the rest of the country should fear them. Plus, I’ve got a hold request in at the library (I think).

So that’s the abbreviated list. I’m sure there will be a lot more that gets added as time goes on.

What about you?

What’s your summer reading look like?

    Great list! I love Lecture to my Students. It’s been a while since I’ve read it…may need to revisit that one.

      Thanks Ben! I’ve loved what I’ve read in it, although some has felt a bit like a piano being dropped on my head. Looking forward to reading the whole thing.
