Each year Al Mohler posts a summer reading list for himself and I never seem to know any of the books on it. Aside from having heard of a few of them, this year is no different. Too bad though. While I start Hebrew in a week and thus most of my free time to finish reading is already up, here is what I hope to read this summer (and almost certainly won’t get to all of it).
1. Martin Luther’s Basic Theological Writings (Luther)
2. How To Read a Book for All It’s Worth (Mortimer Adler)
3. The Hobbit (Tolkien!)
4. The Covenantal Case for Infant Baptism (a lot of people, ed. Gregg Strawbridge)
5. Believer’s Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ (Tom Schreiner/Shawn Wright)
6. The Age of Reform: 1250-1550 (Steven Ozment)
7. The History of Jazz (Ted Gioia)
9. The Trellis and the Vine (Colin Marshall/Tony Payne)
I’d be really happy if I made it through 6 or maybe 7 of these before September rolls around.
