Recent Acquisitions

Due to birthday gifts and some deep discounts at a booksale for charity at the wife's work, I've gotten quite the stack of reading material in the last couple of weeks.

The Missional Leader by Alan Roxburgh and Fred Romanuk
Jesus Driven Ministry by Ajith Fernando
Jesus' Blood and Righteousness: Paul's Theology of Imputation by Brian Vickers
The Majesty of God in the Old Testament by Walter Kaiser
The Present Future by Reggie McNeal
The Attributes of God by Arthur Pink
Unlearning Church by Michael Slaughter
The Perfectly Imperfect Church by Steve Sjogren
Christianity's Dangerous Idea by Alister McGrath
Living the Resurrection by Eugene Peterson
Pierced for Our Transgressions: Rediscovering the Glory of Penal Substitution by Jeffery, Ovey and Sach
Justice in the Burbs by Will and Lisa Samson
Recovering Jesus: The Witness of the New Testament by Thomas Yoder Neufeld
Look Unto Me: The Devotions of Charles Spurgeon edited by Jim Reimann

Anybody got any history with these? Thoughts?

I'm most excited about digging in to McGrath, Peterson, and Pierced.

I just loved Christianity's Dangerous Idea by McGrath. It looks daunting, but it's really not a hard read. Enjoy!

Pierced was great. That's the only one I have read on the list.

btw- great post on church size!

Living The Resurrection is vintage Peterson. I love that little book! It does a great job of putting the resurrection of Christ as the central hope of life in Christ today, not just "in the sweet by and by."
