BBWarfieldLord willing, I’ll get to read the following books in 2015. I’m also hoping you’ll share a few ideas with me. My annual reading goals are to balance theology, history, servant-leadership, and relationship (and an occasional Louis L’amour western).

I try not to enter January with too many reading commitments for a couple of reasons – Firstly, sermon prep requires two full days of weekly study before auxiliary reading is allowed and I’d prefer my kids to remember me as “Dad” and not “Monk.” Secondly, each month, friends and mentors will invariably recommend new favorites, and I’ll succumb to their peer pressure, setting aside my current course to detour along with them for a week or two.

Here’s a few I’m looking forward to. I’d love to hear of yours:

  1. Here are a few that are on my list for 2015.
    – Pilgrims Progress
    – Calvin’s Institutes
    – Momentary Marriage (John Piper)


  2. I’ve got “The Christian in Complete Armor” on my to-read list as well! The Doug Wilson book looks interesting, hadn’t heard of that one. If you still have any room left (I know the reading list can fill up quick!), here are a few suggestions from what I’ve got planned for 2015:

    Not a Chance – R.C. Sproul
    Think – John Piper
    Holiness – J.C. Ryle
    A Body of Divinity – Thomas Watson

    Happy reading!


    1. Thank you. Body of Divinity is in the stack, just don’t know if I’ll get there this year 🙂
