So post Lent I’m looking for something to blog a series on. I really enjoyed doing the 7 deadly sins/ 7 last words series and would like something like that. Any ideas are welcome. My only regular plan right now are book reviews and some sort of prayer post on Sundays.
As always, I have more book reviews coming. This is because I get books from publishers as an excuse to blog and I get to support my reading habit (I am an addict without sufficient income). I have really appreciated how some of these books have stretched my perspective and hope that I have read them graciously.
In these reviews, you have me at my most generous. I try to affirm what I can about the authors project and execution. Many of the authors I review bring different theological assumptions to the table than I have (they are more charismatic, more reformed, more dispensational, etc.) I have no problem disagreeing, but I try to do this in away that is constructive. So you got my honest take, but with a happy face. I try to be ‘sympathic-critical’ in each of these reviews and take what I can. If you want me non-hedged criticism of a bad book, just ask and I will be happy to share honest thoughts without the happy face. 🙂
I am pretty excited about some of the books I got coming up (others are okay).: A book on B.B. Warfield, a book on the antonement, a couple of memoirs, a book on hospitality, a commentary and another book on prayer. So stay tuned.
