I’ve been pretty bad about keeping up with writing on the books I’ve been reading. There are several I’d like to review, and one I need to review (a publisher provided book). So here we are:
- John Walton’s The Lost World of Genesis One I really enjoyed this book, and found his argument persuasive. I need to review it mainly because I have a hard time articulating his point to others.
- N.T. Wright’s Surprised by Hope This one was also a good read, though a bit repetitive if you’re already familiar with Wright’s work. I enjoyed the focus on New Creation and Resurrection rather than only on “going to Heaven when we die.”
- Zondervan’s Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary of the Old Testament: Volume IV I’ve skimmed through this one some, and it seems up to the standard of the other volume I reviewed. The amount of material on Isaiah is astounding. Perhaps I should contrast it with the Early Church’s reading of Isaiah.
That’s all for now I suppose. Maybe I’ll blog a bit more on Greek coming up, who knows!
