So Friday it will be August 1st and I had grandiose ideas of a light summer full of reading and not full of classes. However, exactly the opposite happened. I took a June Evangelism class, which was great in and of itself, but I just finished my paper for that class. Then I have a taped course on Modern Church History w/ Dr. Beeke. Great stuff dealing with the Scholastic/Orthodox Protestants!
I did go to all of my profs asking if they could recommend one book that would strengthen my critical thinking or assist in developing more systematic thinking, and then a book which would strengthen my personal piety and zeal to glorify God and enjoy Him and His Word. In other words, books that would encourage my growth in grace and knowledge.
These were some of the recommendations, along with what I was personally pursuing:
I’ll give you a guess how many I started compared to how many I have completed…*sigh
Did you have a Summer Reading List?
Got any suggestions for books that encourage growth in grace and/or knowledge?
