What Are You Reading?

Are you looking for something to read?  Or, some good prices on ebooks you have been wanting to read? Or, maybe a place to find some free ebooks to download?  Or, some book reviews?  Or, some lists of worthwhile reading on theological topics?

Maybe, all of the above?

I have been subscribing to the Englewood Review of Books for several years and receive their emails.

What is their aim?  Here is how they describe their work, 

The Englewood Review of Books is a weekly online book review published by Englewood Christian Church on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. We focus on covering books related to the themes of community, mission, imagination, and reconciliation, and hope to cultivate a vision of Reading for the Common Good, a way of reading that is driven primarily not by one’s personal desires but by an attentiveness to the communities in which we are embedded: church, family, neighborhood, workplace. The books we review are not necessarily books from the “Christian market,” but we hope that they will be vital to fostering Christian faithfulness in our increasingly Post-Christian age.

Sounds like a very worthwhile goal to me.  What about you?

One thing that is great to follow are their “reading lists.”

Over the last several weeks the lists have been about: 10 free ebooks about medieval theology, 12  classics of theology from the first millennium, an introductory reading guide to Walter Wink, and another reading guide to Hans Urs von Balthasar.

Oh, did I mention poems that relate to the weekly lectionary readings.  

You will not only find links to classic works of theology but will also be able to keep up with current books that are worth a read.

And how about one more reading guide – 

Important Discipleship and Formation Books – A Reading Guide – Fall 2020 (August 13, 2020,  by C. Christopher Smith)

… it’s a good time to remember that as disciples of Jesus our schooling never ends.

We are always learning and being formed by our choices and by circumstances thrust upon us. Regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves, what are the practices that help keep us focused on the compassionate and just way of Jesus? These 40 recent books on discipleship and formation (published within the last three years or so) help us to wrestle with this question that lies at the heart of our Christian identity. Not all of these books will be relevant to every reader, but hopefully you will find one or two good books here to read or re-read as you (and the sisters and brothers of your church) press deeper in the coming year into the abundant life of Christ.


The above only touches the surface of what you can find on the website and in their emails.

You need to check on what you can find at the site.  But, please, don’t be mad at me if you find more than you have time to read.
