Christmas Books 2007
I have sanctified this mostly paganized and commercialized holiday by expanding my book collection. Here’s the books I bought with Christmas money in no particular order:
- Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell. No, we’re not related.
- Angkor and the Khmer Civilization by Michael D. Coe.
- How Pol Pot Came To Power by Ben Kiernen.
- Pauline Christology by Gordon D. Fee (now that he has written this and God’s Empowering Presence, when is he going to write his book on Pauline paterology? :) )
- The Saving Righteousness of God by Michael F. Bird.
- Ancient Texts for New Testament Studies by Craig A. Evans.
- Contours of Christology in the New Testament edited by Longenecker.
- A New Perspective on Jesus by Dunn.
- Jesus, the Tribulation, and the End of Exile by Pitre.
- The Testimony of the Beloved Disciple by Bauckham
- The Preexistent Son by Gathercole.
Since I’m not auditing or taking any classes this semester, I will have to rely on books and blog reading for intellectual stimulation. These plus my birthday books should help keep me busy.
