Late Summer Reading (with Whisperings in the Background)


My mother gave me a love for reading. Reading nourishes and disrupts my soul.

I'm on our deck, with coffee, and my laptop. Reading. And, in the background, I am listening to Whisperings: Solo Piano Radio.

Existential Physics: A Scientist's Guide to Life's Biggest Questions, by physicist Sabine Hossenfelder. It's on the limits of scientific explanation.

A Simple Guide to Experience Miracles: Instruction and Inspiration for Living Supernaturally in Christ, by theistic philosopher J. P. Moreland. Linda and I have just begun to read this. J. P. is brilliant, and one of the best teachers I have ever heard. (We've had him at two of our summer conferences.)

I am halfway through The Morality Wars: The Ongoing Debate Over The Origin Of Human Goodness, by Louise Mabille and Henk Stoker (Eds.).

Because, at Redeemer, we are now preaching and teaching through the book of Galatians, I am immersed in the biblical text, and commentaries. Which are by...

Craig Keener

Scot McKnight

Ben Witherington

N. T. Wright

Tim Keller

(What a lineup!)
