Centuries Of Meditations by Thomas Traherne

I added this to the Torrey curriculum on a lark several years ago, and it's been the gift that keeps on giving. Every reading is a delight. The Kessinger reprint is barely adequate, let's have a new one.

The History of the Church by Eusebius
Rate this book
Clear rating
Looking back from the fourth century to the bad old days before Constantine, Eusebius tells every story he's ever heard about the early church. His credulity, his crush on Origen, his replacement theology, and an over-realized eschatology detract som ...more

The First and Second Apologies by Justin Martyr
Rate this book
Clear rating
Justin Martyr's work is epochal for the development of Christian doctrine. In presenting the faith as rational, he may go too far in the direction of smoothing over differences. This shows up pretty starkly in his denial that God has a name; a positi ...more

The City of God against the Pagans by Augustine of Hippo
Rate this book
Clear rating
The ideal reader of City of God actively enjoys its vast scope, but also its digressive character and discursive style. I'm not that ideal reader, but I learned to appreciate those elements.

The life of Caesar (read along with those of Pompey and Marc Antony) are the richest depiction of the "lust to dominate" that you could hope for. Caesar is genuinely admirable, remarkable in every way, and Plutarch kind of likes him. But he is Rome I ...more

More of Fred's books…
“A gospel which is only about the moment of conversion but does not extend to every moment of life in Christ is too small. A gospel that gets your sins forgiven but offers no power for transformation is too small. A gospel that isolates one of the benefits of union with Christ and ignores all the others is too small. A gospel that must be measured by your own moral conduct, social conscience, or religious experience is too small. A gospel that rearranges the components of your life but does not put you personally in the presence of God is too small.”
Fred Sanders, The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything

“Evangelicals may have some dysfunctional, subjectivistic ways of expressing this truth, and we may cultivate the experience in shortsighted ways, even using it as a prop for our anti-intellectualism. But we are fundamentally right. This book is a channel through which God himself will meet us again and again in personal encounter. The voice of God in Scripture is the breath of the Spirit carrying the word of the Father. Scorgie”
Fred Sanders, The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything

“Many evangelicals seem haunted by a sense of not being about anything except the moment of conversion. When they stop to ask themselves where they are taking their converts, they fear that when they get there, there will be no there there. When”
