What I Read In September

October 2, 2013

I did not read a ton in September, but what I did was substantial.

Charity and It’s Fruit by Jonathan Edwards – Got this one for free on iBooks. It is a gem through and through. It consistently took my heart, pried it open, and revealed layer after layer of sin. Anger, selfishness, judgementalism, pride, self-promotion…it’s all here. Plus, it is wrapped in the language of a time when people were less afraid of offending one another and more concerned with speaking truth. I will come back to this one time and time again. Probably the best book I have read this year.

Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxes – This 500+ monster is still in process. I am about 2/3 of the way through, but it is riveting. You have to be patient with it because the language is thick and the plot line slow. For example, at 2/3 through Bonhoeffer has yet to be arrested and it doesn’t look like it’s coming anytime soon. The value in this book is the inside look it gives you at a man who dared to love boldly for Christ at the risk of his own life. Absolutely inspiring stuff!
