Impressive! You read all of those??? Hope your Christmas has been good.

Nick Hill said...

Yeah right! There is no way I have read all of these, but I am working through some of these one by one. These are standard recommendations by many people I respect. What did you do for Christmas? We enjoyed time with my parents and the kids.

A said...

first question: how can you recommend a book you havent read? so you're recommending a recommendation? :p

second question: where are brian maclaren's books?

third question: what's your top ten of books that you have read?

Nick Hill said...

Aeri,

"how can you recommend a book you haven't read? so you're recommending a recommendation?"

I have skim read many of them and know what they are arguing, so I can recommend them in good conscience. Also, people I highly respect have recommended many of these titles and they are Scripturally sound.

second question: where are brian maclaren's books?

From what I have read of him, he goes outside orthodox biblical Christianity including his view of the scriptures, his view of the atonement, and his view on hell. That is why I have not recommended him.

third question: what's your top ten of books that you have read?

See above!

Hope you are well,

Nick
