Inspired by Kevin DeYoung, here's a list of what I've been reading this summer:
-Life and Holiness by Thomas Merton. While not as widely known as The Seven Storey Mountain, this is a great book explaining what it means to be holy in everyday life.
-The Kingdom of God is Within You by Leo Tolstoy. Although I do not consider myself to be a Christian Anarchist, Tolstoy's writings have definitely influenced my social/political views.
-Evolving in Monkey Town by Rachel Held Evans. You're probably sick of me constantly gushing about this book, but it really did help me become comfortable with having questions.
-Surprised by Hope by N.T. Wright. This book has changed the way I view death and the afterlife.
-Hipster Christianity by Brett McCracken. Surprisingly, this book is a serious examination of what it means to be Christian and hip.
-A Jonathan Edwards Reader. I'm currently reading this one now. Most of us know Edwards as that angry fire and brimstone guy. But he's actually more than that. Although I don't think I'll be wearing one of those "Jonathan Edwards Is My Homeboy" shirts any time soon.
