Working on the following:

Christian Dogmatics: Reformed Theology for the Church Catholic - edited by Michael Allen and Scott R. Swain, loaded with delicious essays from people like John Webster (RIP), Oliver Crisp, and Kevin Vanhoozer.

Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision by N. T. Wright. This is Wright's superior response to Piper's criticisms about his doctrine of justification.

The Election of Grace: A Riddle without a Resolution? by Stephen N. Williams. Just ran across it in the library and noticed it looked interesting (I mean, it has an appendix solely about Barth's doctrine of election).

The Pilgrim's Progress - John Bunyan

 

I've heard so many good things about it, so I've decided to check it out. One of the benefits of the KJV is learning the Old English this is written in.

The KJV is not exactly capital "O" old English. Old English is like this:

"Fæder ūre þū þe eart on heofonum, Sī þīn nama ġehālgod."

The KJV is more Early Modern English.

Blood on the Walls: Memoirs of an Anti-Royalist from Miner's Row to Royal Palace - Willie Hamilton

 

Engaging, honest and very very witty - I'm really enjoying it, and different stuff to my usual list of travel writing, running books and history that I usually read over my summer holidays.

Yea, I realized that after I wrote it. "Old" English is nothing like 1600s English, so I appreciate your post.

Emma by Jane Austen

 

Not a fan. It's like a chick flick, except a book not a flick.

Animal Farm by George Orwell

 

Nice bit of political satire without being too satirey. Just goes to show how easily a government based on equality and fairness can become a dictatorship given time and trickery.
