Books to read in 2011

Here is a list of some of the books I”m looking forward to reading in 2011. Some are from my bookshelves, but haven’t read; others are books I’ve recently purchased. Either way, I’m looking forward to getting started and seeing what else 2011 has in store. Any comments, suggestions, or questions are welcome.

  1. Yeah, I began the two Hays books earlier this year, but haven’t finished them. Actually, I used his Echoes in Scripture for my thesis and that was awhile ago. I began The Prophetic Imagination today and so far it is great.
    @Kyle- What are you reading these days?

  2. The song states “oh to be like thee.” Wow, great list. I have never read Hays however everyone cites the dude. Volf is a hero of mine. Free of Charge is one of the best books I have ever read on forgiveness. Brueggemann makes me want preach on the street corner everytime I read him. Caputo is thick.
