I did a “recent books of interest” list this past September, and I think it is time for another one! So, here are some books that I have wisely and solemnly chosen to commend!
John Eliot Gardiner, Bach: Music in the Castle of Heaven
Paul Johnson, Mozart: A Life
Hanspeter Nüesch, Ruth and Billy Graham
Michael Bird, et al., How God Became Jesus: A Response to Bart Ehrman
D. G. Hart, Recovering Mother Kirk: The Case for Liturgy in the Reformed Tradition (back in print from W&S)
Buck Owens, Buck ‘Em!: The Autobiography of Buck Owens
Andrew Louth, Introducing Eastern Orthodox Theology
Michael Horton, Calvin on the Christian Life
Stanley Rosen, The Idea of Hegel’s ‘Science of Logic’
John Walton and D. Brent Sandy, The Lost World of Scripture
Flannery O’Connor, A Prayer Journal
Douglas Moo, Galatians (BECNT)
Robert Hilburn, Johnny Cash: The Life
Clearly, the most important book on this list is Buck Owens’ autobiography! Oh, and on the prior list of recent books, I tragically forgot to mention Travis McMaken’s book on why Barth doesn’t believe babies are loved by God, or something like that. I do plan to read it soon.
