message 1: by Ryan (new)

Ryan The oldest book on here is the Institutes. How is this anything like a top 100 list? Nothing before Calvin makes it in the top 100? Jay Adams beats out Gregory of Nyssa?


message 2: by Johnna (new)

Johnna Sturgeon Reading the description, "The most academically sound and historically orthodox books ever written by some of the greatest Christian thinkers and intellectuals of our time" something like half of these books definitely do not belong on this list. I am glad to see Lewis and Chesterton, but nothing regarding the rapture, for instance, can seriously be considered "historically orthodox." However, then I note that "anyone can add books to this list" and it aaaaalll makes sense.

Agreed! Classic theologians and Christian writers had a depth of God's wisdom and knowledge that most writers today don't even begin to grapel with. John Piper continually emphasize s that we as Christians should read older books.
