Inspired by a visit this past week with my brother-in-law, a very progressive Evangelical Free pastor from Atlanta, and a recent invitation to help conduct research as part of my Methodist church's re-visioning process, I ordered a few books from Amazon.com that arrived today and thought I'd share the titles in case any of y'all have read them and have opinions:
"The Present Future: Six Tough Questions for the Church," by Reggie McNeal.
"The Shaping of Things to Come: Innovation and Mission for the 21 Century Church," by Michael Frost and Alan Hirsch.
"Rethinking Christ and Culture: A Post-Christendom Perspective," by Craig A. Carter.
"Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine," by Wayne Grudem.
"Halley's Bible Handbook With the New International Version," by Henry H. Halley.
Actually, this is a good two summers' worth of reading, I'm sure!
