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
