20 Books

Well, it’s always fun to talk about books. Ben (of http://www.faith-theology.blogspot.com) posted a list of 20 books that have influenced him theologically and so I (like several others) thought I would do the same. Unlike Ben, I can’t limit myself to books that are strictly theological; however, I do retain his rule that each author can only be used once.

19. The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevski
18. A Theology of Liberation by Gustavo Guetierrez

14. The Shape of the Church to Come by Karl Rahner
13. Embodying Forgiveness by L. Gregory Jones
12. The Nature of Doctrine by George Lindbeck
11. Hope in Time of Abandonment by Jacques Ellul
