Andrew What do you consider to be Christian? Some of the authors on this list I would consider heretics. Spong? Borg? These men do not believe that the Bible is the holy word of God. They pick and choose what they feel they like out of the Bible. Surely we can come up with a better list than this one... they may be thought provoking but will never lead us closer to Christ.

well Andrew, I think we all pick and choose. Not one of us is able to encompass the whole of God. We need to hold only as much as we can comprehend at any moment in our life. And it enriches me to hear from all those who share the exploration of this life. And my god is big enough and loving enough to be with me, and every person, as I
grow in the knowledge of grace and truth.

So I am glad to hear from anyone who is trying to find their way to meaning and love.

Bea

message 4: by Bea (new)

Bea Nice to be quoted Mydie.

Are you able to mention any books you are finding especially helpful or relevant just now?

I am hoping to be able to read Spong's latest book soon. he is a thorough biblical scholar and always gets me thinking.

And I have been finding points for reflection in the words of Leonard Cohen.


message 5: by Stephen (new)

Stephen Deloney Nice list, has given me some good 'to reads' :-)

The list topic isn't Christian books, or books by Christian authors. It's books every Christian should read. First, necessarily that will be a matter of opinion for each person. Second, Christians ought to read books on all subjects. Why would Christians only want to read books having do to with Christianity? Christians should read books about atheism and about other non-Christian religions. Christians should be as widely read as any other group of people.
