2019 Reading

Some reading goals for 2019:

The remaining books of the Bible that I haven’t read yet

The remaining books are:

  • Judges
  • Kings (1 & 2)
  • Job
  • Ruth
  • Lamentations
  • Ecclesiastes
  • Esther
  • Ezra
  • Nehemiah
  • Chronicles (1 & 2)

I have two confessions to make:

  1. The “Old Testament” I have been reading is actually a Jewish Tanakh, so the ordering of the books is different. I picked it up decades ago as part of a job lot of Religious Texts (including a Koran, a Dhammapada, etc.). Presumably the translation is slightly different from a Christian translation, but I like the translation.
  2. I read the Book of Revelation when I was a kid — read it as a bit of exotic weirdness. I don’t have much interest in reading again.

Non-scriptural Christian writing

  • I have Augustine’s Confessions & it’s been on my “to read” list for too long.
  • I see quotes from G. K. Chesterton from time to time & his theology intrigues me.
  • Modern and contemporary Christian authors. For example Madeleine L’Engle, Elizabeth Goudge, Eugene Vodolazkin.
  • Speeches of Martin Luther King (update after reading Only Love Can Do That – The Voice of Martin Luther King Jr.)

Male bloggers, British bloggers

I wrote about these two last February. The problem persists.
