Iain H. Murray: Puritan Hope
This book shows how the view that the kingdom of God is destined to grow to a place of dominance in the earth before the return of Christ was a key part of Puritan theology and the dominant eschatalogical view until the end of the 19th century. It therefore puts the current dispensational ideas into their correct jonny-come-lately context.
Edmund H. Broadbent: The Pilgrim Church
This book traces the practice of NT church through the past 2000 years. Broadbent was a Brethren (and his does like to point out how often the term Brethren was used through history) and therefore a primitivist; however, those of a restorationist persuasion will find this interesting and encouraging stuff.
Ken Untener: The Practical Prophet: Pastoral Writings
I'm getting quite catholic (and Catholic) in my literary tastes.
Eric Hoffer: The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements (Perennial Classics)
Fascinating reading. This book was written in the 1950s by a dock worker/philosopher. It examines common traits of all sorts of mass movements, including early Christianity and revivals (and Nazis and Commies!).
Tony Ling: The Lion & The Lamb
Undoubtedly the best book anyone in my family has ever written.
- Devern F. Fromke: Ultimate Intention
Getting to grips with the concepts of Restoration.
The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Black Calfskin, Journaling Bible)
This is a journaling bible with very wide margins for notes! I've decided to be liberal with my note-making and just get a new bible when this one is full!
Kevin J. Conner: The Feasts of Israel
Howard A. Snyder: Kingdom, Church, and World: Biblical Themes for Today
A short book and a good introduction to some of the main themes Snyder explores in much of his writing. If you don't read "theological" books this is a good one to start on.
Steve Turner: The Man Called CASH : The Life, Love and Faith of an American Legend
A fascinating story of the life of a man who really knew the grace of God!
Gordon D. Fee: Listening to the Spirit in the Text
Interesting collection of essays from an important writer.
Rob Parsons: The Sixty Minute Father: How Time Well Spent Can Change Your Child's Life
Re-reading this - still can't do it in 60 minutes though!
James B Jordan: Through New Eyes
This book will bring the Bible, particularly the OT, alive to you.
J Nathan Corbitt: The Sound of the Harvest
An excellent, Kingdom-minded survey of music, ministry and culture. Out of print I believe but there are still a few around on the net.
