Book Flood

I've been going through a dry spell when it comes to reading. Part of me really misses the time I had in Japan to absorb so many ideas from books and pod casts. My grandmother gave me some book money, so I went wild on Amazon's used books. Thanks MIMI!!!!!! I've eyeballed most of these since Rob Bell's Poets//Prophets//Preachers conference in 2004. It's taken me since then to get through his suggested reading list. I'm a little more than 3/4 through it.

Here's what I bought.

If Grace is True: Why God Will Save Every Person by Phillip Gulley

Adventures in Missing the Point: How the Culture-Controlled Church Neutered the Gospel by Brian McLaren

Exodus: The Traditional Hebrew Text With the New Jps Translation

Walking the Bible by Bruce Feiler

Mysteries of the Middle Ages by Thomas Cahill

Sketches of Jewish Social Life by Alfred Edersheim

Great choices! That Exodus commentary is the best out there. And Gulley is fantastic.

Thanks dirtman. I can't wait until they get here. What are you reading lately? I shutter to ask, because I might have to back to amazon. =)
