2012 Book List

Following in the footsteps of my wife, I’ve decided to plot my reading schedule for 2012.  It’s really the first time I’ve ever done this.  Most of my reading is just whatever I’m assigned in my seminary classes or whatever I happen to feel like reading on a given day.  This coming year I’ll actually schedule my reading to include a minimum of least one theological/spiritual book per month.  Here is the tentative list I have thus far…

January – Scripture Alone by James R. White

February – Craftsmen: Christ-Centered Proverbs for Men by John Crotts

March – Covenant Theology by Greg Nichols

April – What Did You Expect? by Paul Tripp

May – Josiah’s Reformation by Richard Sibbes

June – Redeeming Science by Vern Poythress

July – The Baptism of Disciples Alone by Fred Malone

August – Defending Your Faith by R.C. Sproul

September – For Us and Our Salvation by Stephen J. Nichols

October – Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God by J.I. Packer

November – The Teaching of Jesus Concerning the Kingdom of God and the Church by Geerhardus Vos

December – By Faith, Not By Sight by Richard Gaffin

This is by no means an exhaustive list of everything I will read in 2012.  It’s simply a target of the minimum reading I want to accomplish.  I’ll definitely have other readings, especially as I teach more classes at church and certainly in my seminary courses.  I’ve tried to make this a good mixture of topics.  There’s also a degree of flexibility here and I know that life gets in the way at times.

At the end of the day, none of the aforementioned books takes priority over the reading of sacred Scripture.  I know this will be a wonderful year of blessing, most especially because we will welcome a new child into our household!  I pray my readers will have a blessed 2012 full of learning and God-centered devotion.
