Books of 2006

Well, here is a list of the books I managed to read in 2006 including some that are still in progress.  I expect the 2007 list will be a bigger one as I make up a reading plan and attempt to have one book read every two weeks.  I’ll post that up as soon as I figure which ones and in which order I will read them.  In no particular order, the list from 2006…

Good list!

I would also recommend Finally Comes the Poet by Brueggemann..then again, I would recommend most of his work..especially his collection of prayers and separate collection of sermons..

Much Grace in reading for 07!

Mark, thanks for the recommendation…I actually have Finally Comes the poet, prophetic imagination, and the word that redescribes the world (his newest). For my 2007 reading list, I’m gonna spend some time in Bruggemann’s work to better grasp where he is at with stuff. from what I’ve read, he makes a valuable contribution to missioal, emerging theology. Thanks for chiming in.

grace and peace.
