So, I spent last night finalising the list of things I want to achieve in the next few months, (in a nice relaxing way of course...). First off is the reading list. Which is as follows, but I would love to hear some suggestions too. I want things that might expand my faith, rather than narrow it, things that might make me think, or cover a particular issue.
So far I have the following:
The Bible (yes its obvious but I have never read it all the way through, so I will be starting at the beginning and going through it...) can anyone suggest a study version with good notes?
The Rule of Benedict: This has been quoted by several people recently, in bloggie land and also in'the real world', and I'd love to know more about it.
Richard Dawkins : The God Delusion - just because...
Darwins Origin of the Species - as above ;)
'Resurrrection' by Rowan Williams - this has sat by my bed since Easter, I really need to get on with it...
'The Jesus I Never Knew' by Philip Yancey. I did read this some years ago but I want to read it now with my new perspective.
'Open heart, Open Mind' by Thomas Keating. I am actually half way through this, about centering prayer. will post on this shortly, its been en eye opener.
Also, although I don't have specific titles yet I want to read about the following:
Corrie Ten Boom
Plus I also had 'The Heavenly Man' and 'Jesus Freaks' by the band dc Talk on the list, but the first I read on hols (will post on that another day - just humbling) and the second I read last night. Very contemporary but inspiring nonetheless.
any other suggestions?
