From the Reading Desk

It has been awhile since a listed books I have either recently read read or am currently reading. Here is what is currently on my desk for reading:
Promises Made: The Message of the Old Testament by Mark Dever. As we are preaching through the Bible, book by book, on Wednesday evening, Dever's sermonic work not only provided the catalyst for this study, but has been a valuable resource as well.
Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture by Graeme Goldsworthy. The Bible, though the majority of it is an account of ancient Jewish history and life, it is first and foremost for us a Christian account of the history of God and his redemptive work among His people. If we are going to be faithful expositors of God's word, we must see the Bible as Christian Scriptures.
Foundations of Grace: A Long Line of Godly Men by Steven Lawson. This is the first volume in a series on the history of the Doctrines of Grace. This first volume deals with the Doctrines of Grace in Biblical history and theology. This book and series should prove to be an indispensable contribution to the church's understanding and articulation of these glorious doctrines.
Sound and Fury: Two Powerful Lives, One Fateful Friendship by Dave Kindred. This is a biography of Howard Cosell and Muhammad Ali and their unlikely, yet unmistakable friendship. This book came to me recently as a recommendation from a friend. I have not started reading it yet, but I look forward to starting soon.
