Iain D's Summer Reading

Posted by

My Summer reading has started with John R. Muether's new biography of Cornelius Van Til, which I am enjoying. My theological reading list for the next few weeks includes Michael Haykin and Kenneth Stewart's The Emergence of Evangelicalism: Exploring Historical Continuities, a collection of essays assessing the impact of David Bebbington's analysis of evangelicalism in Britain from twenty years ago. It also includes David Wells' The Courage to be Protestant and Anthony C. Thiselton's The Hermeneutics of Doctrine, which at first glance seems to be a long overdue book on the interface between biblical interpretation and systematic theology.

 

Like Phil, I also use the Summer to dip into non-theological material, so I am going to indulge my African interests by reading Robyn Scott's Twenty Chickens for a Saddle - the story of a New Zealand family who emigrated to Botswana, and Tim Jeal's Stanley: The Impossible Life of Africa's Greatest Explorer.

 

And that, as the late Clement Graham, our apologetics professor at the Free Church College used to say, is only a statement of intent. If I manage to complete the reading of just one of these I'll be happy.
