“ To have Faith in Christ means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain ...more ”
“ It takes three to make love, not two: you, your spouse, and God. Without God people only succeed in bringing out the worst in one another. Lovers who have nothing else to do but love each other soon find there is nothing else. Without a central loyalty life is unfinished. ”

[close] Have you ever wanted to read the classics of Christian theology but didn’t know where to begin? This list takes you through twelve of the most important theological works ever written. But why should we bother reading old books of theology anyway? Aren’t there more relevant books to read? Aren’t there better things we can do with our time than poring over old and difficult books? In one important sense, the short answer is no. Theology is humanity’s highest aim; it is our first calling and our ultimate destiny. Why? Because theology is reflection on humanity’s highest Good—God himself—and on all things in creation as they relate to God. In this sense, theology is not a means to some other, more practically-oriented end; it is an end in itself. Even in the crucially important tasks of loving, serving, and evangelizing others, what we are ultimately calling them to is the knowledge and love of the Triune God himself both now and into eternity. Now, of course you don’t have to read this precise list of books in order to know and love God, but this list is a good place to start. The ultimate source and standard of our knowledge of God is Holy Scripture. But we all need help in interpreting, synthesizing, and applying Scripture’s teachings. Reading the theological classics helps enormously in this regard. Theology is sort of like learning a craft: you learn best by apprenticing with the masters.
