On the Bookshelf XXIX

Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco
Conspiracy theories. Templars. A map. And a literary joke gone very, very wrong. If an uber-bizarre, intellectually sophisticated version of National Treasure sounds like your thing, you may want to give Eco’s book a try.

The Valley of Vision by Arthur Bennett
A beautiful, Word-saturated collection of Puritan prayers that should be on every Christian’s shelf. “​Oh God, it is amazing that men can talk so much about man’s creaturely power and goodness, when, if thou didst not hold us back every moment, we should be devils incar​​nate.”

My Life for Yours by Douglas Wilson
A walk through the Christian home.  Allie and I are reading through this together and appreciating it immensely.

What’s on your bookshelf right now?

  1. Beowulf (the Wilson’s rendition), The Gospel According To The Apostles by MacArthur, The Good Life by Lee, Basic Christianity by Stott (great book, re-reading), various commentaries on Ecclesiastes, and Mounce’s Basics of Biblical Greek. And anything else that looks like it needs dipped into at the moment.
