What Are You Reading?

What are you reading this Easter weekend? I tend to get into reading too deep and read several books at once depending on the situation. For example, I'm continuing my study of Evangelicalism with The Advent of Evangelicalism: Exploring Historical Continuitieswhich is a top notch read on the subject and I have several books to follow up. Such as, Noll's, The Rise of Evangelicalism: The Age of Edwards, Whitefield, and the Wesleys (History of Evangelicalism)and in conjunction with these I'm taking in Noll's, Christians in the American Revolution. On a more practical side I've just dug into Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church: Understanding a Movement and Its Implicationsby D.A. Carson. Really looking forward to this one as I've had a few introductory conversations on this and I truly need to know more. What else? We just recceived a shipment of books this week including Why We're Not Emergent: By Two Guys Who Should Beand Zinssner's, On Writing Well, 30th Anniversary Edition: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfictionwhich I'm also looking forward to. Not to mention a few Dummines books; Excel 2007 for Dummies, Vista for Dummies and LinkedIn for Dummies.

Hi Russ,

I just finished reading 'why we are not emergent' I enjoyed it but didn't learn anything from it. I am really enjoying Total Church by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis the British equivalent of Mark Driscoll I think. I am preparing for an interview in a couple of weeks in Englandshire. :-)I have been quiet on the blogging front as I have been doing a lot of preaching of late.
God bless
Stephen

Glad to hear from you Scrape. How's the Lord treating you? I can't get on your family blog any longer to keep up with you. What's happening?
