Puritan Board Doctor
A Plea for the Christians, by Athenagorus.
I have The Valley of Vision laying around somewhere.I`ll have to find it!I just started Danny Hyde's Jesus Loves the Little Children. After that, I'll most likely read these:
The Lord's Supper by Robert Letham
Called to the Ministry by Ed Clowney
The Valley of Vision
That book changed my life. I'd never read any puritans, and was just treading water in my walk with God.
I was given a copy by my mum, and read it in 2 days. Absolutely fantastic.
Slowly making my way through:
Death of death in the death of Christ - John Owen
Absolutely. I missed so much in my reading, and was so hyped up by it I lent it to an unreliable friend, who hasn't returned it in a year and a half! I will get it back.... somehow... some day...Well, I am a VERY Slow and deliberate reader. I have been reading it for over a month now, re-reading portions. It is so different than ANYTHING I have ever read, so deep, spiritually thoughtful. I am loving every minute of it.
Reading Owen is comparable to wading through chocolate sauce. Thick, heavy, and satisfying. I've had to do the Packer thing and write out the arguments as they form, otherwise I get lost.I have Owen's The Death of Death in the Death of Christ. These 2 Puritan's a VERY Different. Watson is thoroughly readable. Owens is very tough, but equally deep, but deeper in a more scholarly way. I have a Condensed version of Calvin's Institutes and just purchased his Commentaries this past Summer. Excellent resources !
I hope you take no offense at the question - none is intended - but may I ask why you would go so many times through a blasphemous pagan document?OKay, this might be a little differnet list, but bear with me:
--Pickthall's translation fo the Koran, "The Meaning of the Glorious Qur'an"
Will be my 8th time through the Koran.
