Summer Reading (Part 2)

Here are some more books that I've been reading this summer

This book was one that was hard to put down. Jennifer and I both read it in one week (she basically read it in one day!) Its an incredible story of some friends who dirt bike their way 9,000 miles up through Africa.

This is a theology text from some of my professors from seminary. I'll be reading this book throughout the year, but its more of a resource than anything else. I don't know that I'd recommend it if you already possess a good systematic theology text book, but it does a better job with historical theology than most.

This is a book that came out of a "Together for the Gospel" conference. So far, its been one of my favorites this summer. I highly recommend it to those of us who preach

Another book that came out of a conference several years ago. This is a good book to understand how suffering fits into God's purposes. Its not an academic book talking about suffering from afar however, its much more personal & worshipful than a lot of discussions about this particular topic

I'm also getting ready to start today (and perhaps finish...its only 108 pgs!) a biography of a missionary to the Congo named Helen Roseveare. I'd never heard of her three weeks ago, but I saw her name as one of the keynote speakers at the Desiring God Conference and so I got a copy of her biography.
