    I looked around, and couldn't find any threads like this, so I'm sorry if I possibly missed a thread that already exists...and sorry also if this isn't in a correct area of the board.


    I'm currently reading Temptation: Resisted & Repulsed, by John Owen.

  5. O'GodHowGreatThouArt

    O'GodHowGreatThouArt Puritan Board Sophomore

    Currently reading Wurmbrand's "Tortured for Christ" as evening devotional reading. I wouldn't be surprised if I finish it tonight.

    I'm starting Ryle's "Thoughts for Young Men" tomorrow morning as morning devotional reading (along with scripture reading and study). So I'm at a bit of a lost as to what to read next for evenings

    What I'm trying to do is keep the morning readings more practical/theological, and the evening readings more down the line of History/Missions/Biographies etc. Considering that books in the latter are limited on my bookshelf...you can see my quandry. :)

    I am currently reading The Goldsworthy Trilogy by Graeme Goldsworthy. Excellent reading and food for the tortured soul that is surrounded by a world of John Hagee type interpretors of scripture.

    Living for God's Glory, Beeke and A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith, Reymond (which a generous brother from the PB gave me this week). I have never read a systematic theology cover-to-cover (well, at least since seminary, which has been a long time), but I have started to do this with Reymond. Love it.

    I have a dear brother whom is reading The Fatal Flaw and has been telling me how wonderful the book is in regards to the subject. I've added it to my que and LORD willing hope to get to it. I also forgot to mention,but am going back in a little bit of my spare time between school,work, the book I'm reading to re-read the Chronicles of Narnia. In fact just finished the Silver Chair a week or so. Once this semester is over may have more reading time. I will be glad as I have a few books I already want to read: Biblical Interpretations Klein,Blomberg,Hubbard and if I can get a copy of it Spurgeon's two volume autobiography. That of course is just how I intend to start my summer. :)
