Books to Come

In the coming month we will turn to two new books, one by Darrell Cosden called The Heavenly Good of Earthly Work. I met Darrell on a flight, got his book, and think this book is a nice change of topics and a good book for us. And, alongside that one, we’ll look at John Stackhouse, Making the Best of It. Stackhouse argues for Christian realism vs. Constantinianism and Anabaptism.

“I met Darrell…”
I’m jealous. :) I thought both this book and his more academic “A Theology of Work” were very good. I’ll look forward to the series.

I’m excited about the Cosden! Honors Program is currently reading through Volf’s Work in the Spirit, so this flows very nicely from that. Looking forward to it. =)
