by Craig M. Mullaney
This was a recommendation from Al Mohler. It has received some remarkable reviews and should expose me to some topics I otherwise know nothing about. It's the memoir of a Craig Mullaney...a recent West Point graduate, turned Rhodes Scholar, turned foot soldier in Afghanistan. Mullaney is barely thirty years old so a memoir is a bit premature, but by all accounts he is an extraordinary human being.
by Fred Sanders and Klaus Issler
These two guys are actually contributing editors to this collection of essays on the Trinity. This should be good. Bruce Ware wrote one of the essays, and it comes by recommendation of Darrell Bock. My only fear is it may be too introductory. We'll see. This is a topic that's always good to visit. There is so much error in regards to the dual nature of Christ and how that relates to his place in the Godhead. Lovers of The Shack beware.
by Andrew Walls and Cathy Ross
I had Dr. Walls for my favorite course in seminary--Understanding the Western Missionary Movement. He hasn't written many books. Most of his published work is comprised of collections of articles he has written. This is what Cathy Ross has done for this volume. I believe Dr. Walls is the most important church historian of the last 50 years, and I look forward to reading his insights.
Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl
by ND Wilson
This book comes as an interruption to a series of acclaimed children's books that Wilson has been writing. The publisher describes the book as "an aesthetic examination of the ways in which humanity has tried to make sense of this overwhelming carnival ride of a world. Wilson takes a whimsical, thought-provoking look at everything from the "magic" of quantum physics, to nature's absurdities, to the problem of evil, evolution and hell. These frequently humorous, and uniquely beautiful portraits express reality unknown to many Christians-the reality of God's story unfolding around and among us." Perfect summer reading.
Theology in the Context of World Christianity
by Timothy Tennent
This is another missions book. I am looking at some D.Miss programs so I'm trying to bone up on the current thinking in Missiology as best I can. Tennent, Phillip Jenkins, and Mark Noll have recently been catching on to what Andrew Walls has been teaching for years--that the global expression of the Christian faith is upon us, and it is not primarily Western. I've never read Tennent...should be good.
