April 2008


For my class on Biblical Interpretation for Life and Ministry, we had to read the following books

The Art of Reading Scripture Edited by Ellen F. Davis and Richard B. Hayes

Holy Scripture by John Webster

A Short Introduction to Hermeneutics by David Jasper

In addition for my paper on 1 Kings 19, I read a number of commentaries and other articles–will be available if I ever post my paper.

For my Readings in Western Spirituality, we read the following:

The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux translated by John Beevers

The Rule of Saint Benedict

The Imitation of Christ edited by Harold Gardner

Theologica Germanica

Catherine of Genoa translated by Serge Hughes

Exploring Christian Spirituality edited by Kenneth Collins

Soul Care by Kenneth Collins

Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade translated by John Beevers

The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence

A number of sermons by John Wesley

In addition for my paper on the Spirituality of Hudson Taylor, I read a number of books about Hudson and as many of his writings as I could find.

    I love that book by Brother Lawrence. The title says it all.
    It does take practice to realize and acknowledge His presence.

    If you like this one, try reading Frank Laubach’s companion to this, both are published together now by someone–don’t have the title on hand. Simple but hard, eh?
