What should I read?

A number of blogs and sites have posted their best reads of 2011.  I thought I would ask you, whoever you are, what you would like me to read and blog through this year.  I'm up for a wide variety of possibilities but I want to spend some time this year reading.

Here are three I have in mind so far as an example of diverse interests:

Others have floated through my head.  What would you like to see discussed here?  No promises ;-)

Anything by Tom Wright of course. How about Ben Witherington's book on Work as well as Wright's the Cross and the Colliery(SPCK)? Discussion on Hebrews is always welcome and Maxwell.

I would be interested on your take on Wright.

[I know God wants you to blog Wright's book because the verification word for this comment is "istom"!!!]

I'd be curious to hear your thoughts after reading The Fidelity of Betrayal by Peter Rollins (if you haven't read it yet). Or anything else by him.

I would be interested in your take on Moffitt's book.

Some of the better reads for me in 2011: Dennis Kinlaw's Lectures on O T Theology, Water From a Deep Well; Gerald Sittser, The Great Divorce; Lewis, Addiction and Grace and The Dark Night of the Soul by Gerald Gray, and most recently The Father's Tale by Michael D O'Brien, my favorite novelist, even though I don't buy all his doctrinal beliefs.
Waiting in the wings: Incarnation and Atonement by Torrance, The Secular Age Taylor; I confess the last looks especially daunting, along with a few others.

I misread your post. I have pondered a bit and find the Rollins book intriguing, I would enjoy a post on it. Also, the Taylor book A Secular Age, I hope to read it myself, but.....as I said it looks a challenge.

Thom Stark's The Human Faces of God

I'll add Rollins to my list and Brain Rules (mentioned by Christy Hontz somewhere else--I have it and we use it in one of our seminary classes). Maybe I should read Secular Age as well. thanks!

I'm adding from other people's lists Tom Wright's Scripture and the Authority of God, Christian Smith's The Bible Made Impossible, and Charles Scobie's The Ways of our God.

Add Pete Enns' new book on Adam to the list as well as the biblical theology by Feldmeier and Spiecherman, God of the Living.
