If you’re wondering, I’ll probably be reading

So I’m going back to school.  Yeah I know, my life is crazy enough already, with a wife, a 2 year old, a baby on the way, a puppy and youth ministry.  I’m going to add one more thing Grad School.  Kathy and I talked and prayed about this, and we figured there really never is a good time to improve yourself.  There’s never a good time to go to the gym, there’s never a good time to read that book, there’s never a good time to take a sabbath.  So you just need to do it.

With that said I will be taking 2 courses this fall, and I was emailed my reading lists for those two classes. So my new years resolution of reading one book at a time will have to come to an end soon. Here are the books that I will be reading.

For Meaning of Christian Community

  • How Your Church Family Works: Understanding Congregations as Emotional Systems
  • Lectures on Calvinism
  • Life Together and Prayerbook of the Bible (Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works)
  • An Introduction to Ecclesiology: Ecumenical, Historical & Global Perspectives
  • Worship, Community & the Triune God of Grace
  • Leading the Team-Based Church: How Pastors and Church Staffs Can Grow Together
  • The Shaping of things to Come (I’m already reading this.)
  • Created for Community (I’ve already read this so I will be reviewing)
For Theology and Contemporary Media
  • Sanctuary Cinema: Origins of the Christian Film Industry
  • Christ and Culture 
  • Film Art: An Introduction
  • Reel Spirituality: Theology and Film in Dialogue
  • Art And the Bible: Two Essays (Ivp Classics)
  • Plowing in Hope: Towards a Biblical Theology of Culture
  • Eyes Wide Open: Looking for God in Popular Culture
  • Understanding Evangelical Media: The Changing Face of Christian Communication
So I’ll be pretty busy with reading in the future.
