At the beginning of the summer my brother-in-law asked me to put together a list of theology/religion books that I'd recommend. A little while ago I finally finished it narrowing them down. (Sorry it took so long Jonathan!) You can already find them in the sidebar under "READING LISTS" but I thought I'd post it here also.  I left out many books that I love and/or learned from but I wanted this to reflect the books that most helped me to reach and/or manage with my current theological state and our unique in their area. Who knows, in a few years this list may be very different. As I put it in the other posting these are "Formative works and hurdles in my spiritual journey and worldview"

The Prophetic Imagination / Walter Brueggemann
The Irresistible Revolution / Shane Claiborne  
Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography / John Dominic Crossan 
The God Delusion / Richard Dawkins
Misquoting Jesus / Bart Ehrman
Celebration of Discipline / Richard J Foster
The Upside-Down Kingdom / Donald B Kraybill
The Secret Message of Jesus / Brian D McLaren

Sweet. I've read half of those, which means I would likely enjoy and appreciate the other half. Thanks for posting these and adding to my already lengthy reading list, Chris.
