I am starting off the year reading a few different things. I've been sick for the past few days which has enabled me to read more than usual (I guess I'm too tired to get up and move about). Here is the list of what I'm reading now:
1. The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller - So far this book has been fantastic. I would encourage any and everyone to read this book!
2. The Case for Covenantal Infant Baptism ed. by Gregg Strawbridge. I have many friends and heroes who do/have baptized infants. I've never taken the time to learn what they understand the Scriptures to teach from their perspective until recently. It has proved to be another good book thus far.
3. The Bible - I'm actually presently working through 2 Bible reading plans at once. As a church I have decided to use the Book at a Time Bible Reading Plan. This is a great plan because it spends time in a just a few chapters a day and gives you a few make-up days every month. However, I've also challenged myself in another Bible reading plan. I am not sure I'll be able to do this one, but I'm reading the Bible in 90 days. While this is a good way to read through the Bible, it is not a good way to meditate on the Scriptures.
4. Leading with Love by Alexander Strauch - I'm reading this with my deacons this year. I read most of it a few years ago, but am looking forward to discussing it with these men who want to lead FBC well.
5. Training Hearts, Teaching Minds by Starr Meade - We are reading this during our family devotions 6 nights a week and working through the Westminster Shorter Catechism.
What are you reading now? What do you plan to read this year?
