procrastination, heresy, and navel-gazing.

book list

i've had to compile two different book lists in the last week,
1/ for my college application form, listing "at least 5" Christian books that have influenced me, and
2/ for CBS Core, a suggested reading list, as the students start building Christian libraries for themselves

so what are the top 5 Christian books that have influenced you?

mine are:
  1. The Myths of Science (ed. by Kirsten Birkett)
  2. Knowing God (JI Packer)
  3. Holiness (JC Ryle)
  4. Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God (JI Packer)
  5. Answers in Genesis - (tho this was remarkable for my early Christian growth, i look back now with sorrow as i see how they manage to pigeon-hole the creation v evolution debate)

Stott - The Cross of Christ
Packer – Knowing God (+ God Has Spoken)
Carson - A Call to Spiritual Reformation
Goldsworthy – Gospel and Kingdom
O’Donovan - Resurrection and Moral Order
