A friend at church recently asked Tamie about which books would be best to read, so we clapped together this list. In it, you might not find the stuff you’re looking for (or think you’re looking for), but this is a certain sort of list.
It’s an evangelical list. Evangelicals care a lot about the finished work of Christ and the importance of the Bible. But even more than that, if it were possible, evangelicals care about the transformed life. So this list focuses on truth as transformation, leaning towards ethics more than doctrine, leaning towards the ‘godward’ life more than flashpoint issues.
It’s also an Australian list. It reflects the influence of Australian evangelicals and it leans more towards the British tradition than the American tradition.
It’s a short list and an incomplete list, but here it is all the same!
What would you put on your list, and why?
