The semester is over. My first year of doctoral study is in the books (and by “in the books,” I mean both that it is complete and that I spent the entirety of it with my nose firmly placed in a book). I have always been a reader, but I have never read that much in such a small span of time.
And yet, the nature of doctoral work is that it never ends. One is always reading. Always researching. Always studying. And I’m told that this does not expire with a graduation date.
So, these are the books that are on my to-read list this summer.
- A World Lit Only by Fire: The Medieval Mind and the Renaissance – Portrait of an Age, William Manchester
- God, Revelation and Authority, vol. 2, Carl F.H. Henry
- The Nature of Doctrine: Religion and Theology in a Postliberal Age, George A. Lindbeck
- Eclipse of Biblical Narrative: A Study in Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Hermeneutics, Hans W. Frei
- The End of the Historical-Critical Method, by Gerhard Maier
- The Quest for the Historical Jesus: A Critical Study of its Progress from Reimarus to Wrede by Albert Schweitzer
- The Semantics of Biblical Language, James Barr
- The Authority and Interpretation of the Bible: An Historical Approach, Jack B. Rogers and Donald K. McKim
- Biblical Authority: Infallibility and Inerrancy in the Christian Tradition, by John D. Woodbridge
- At the Pure Fountain of Thy Word: Andrew Fuller as an Apologist (Studies in Baptist History and Thought), Michael A.G. Haykin
- The Oxford Inklings: Lewis, Tokien and Their Circle, by Colin Duriez
- Newton on the Christian Life, by Tony Reinke
