I Got the Cocaine Blues


If you haven’t yet seen the biopic Walk the Line or at least listened to the soundtrack, I implore you to do so. I’ll admit it, I have now jumped the Johnny Cash bandwagon but I am enjoying every minute of it.

Moreover, Dino posted on his blog his top 10 books of 2005. He then asked his readers to post what their faves were this past year. After you get done commenting on your faves of 2005 for him, hop back over here and and tell me what books you want to read most in 2006. Here are some of mine:

(1) New Testament and the People of God by N.T. Wright

(2) Jesus and the Victory of God by N.T. Wright

(3) The Politics of Jesus by John Howard Yoder

(4) Jesus and Empire by Richard A. Horsley

(5) An Introduction to the Old Testament by Walter Brueggemann

(6) The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

(7) A People’s History of the Unites States by Howard Zinn

(8) More Ernest Hemingway

(9) Greek and Roman history

(10) The Seven Story Mountain by Thomas Merton

  1. Daniel,

    I am looking forward to reading all of NT Wright’s stuff, Walter Bruggeman’s “Prophetic Imagination,” Scott Mcknight’s “Jesus Creed”, Tony Jones’ “Sacred Way”, Nancey Murphy’s “Beyond Liberalism and Fundementalism”, and Eddie Gibbs and Ryan Bolger’s Emerging Churches.

  2. You guys intimidate me. My list is a little more simplified:

    1. “Your God is too Safe” by Mark Buchanan
    2. “Hints on Child Training” by H. Clay Trumbull which was originally published in 1890. Don’t laugh!
    3. “A Celebration of Children” by Edith Schaeffer. (Or anything by her)
    4. “When I Don’t Desire God” by John Piper.
    5. “Gardening for Dummies” by Michael MacCaskey and Bill Marken
    6. “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis
    7. “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare” Shakespeare
    8. “For the Children’s Sake” by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay
    9. “Voices of the Faithful” with Beth Moore.
    10. “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis.–>
