January Reading List

So, to be completely honest, I’m calling a do-over on my reading.  I’ve had 3 or 4 books on my night stand for … let’s just say a while now.  I need to do better.  I will do better!  Positive thinking!

Starting last night, I’m working through two of these books.  I find it interesting as I revisit them to see old highlighter marks and try to remember why that sentence or paragraph struck me at first read.  So what books are they?  In no particular order:

1. Church History in Plain Language by Bruce Shelley51 u7mn33FL._SX339_BO1,204,203,200_

This book came highly recommended from a dear friend and even though I’m just a few chapters in, I can see why.  Dr. Shelley has a keen ability to quickly involve the reader into what he is discussing and does a great job at bringing  the topic of church history to life.

2. The Purpose of God: Ephesians by R.C. Sproul417q6Su0htL._SX318_BO1,204,203,200_

Even though we recently lost R.C. to ailing health, his legacy continues through his ministry at Ligonier. I very much enjoy most everything Sproul, this being no exception.  A short work, only 160 pages, this book is an exposition on the book Ephesians.

I’ve never been good at writing book reviews, but we’ll see what transpires as I work my way through my reading lists.  Also, the links provided are just for convenience.  I make no money on endorsements or the like.  Just saving the reader some time if there is interest!

Have a blessed Tuesday friends.
