What's On Your Nightstand -- June 2011

What's On Your Nightstand is hosted by 5 Minutes for Books. In my "currently reading" I've got the New English Bible, I'm trying to finish up the New Testament (Matthew, Acts, Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon). I've also got an odd assortment of books to finish up so that I can complete my third reading of the Bible for this year--Hosea, Joel, Amos, Zechariah, and Malachi. It is already an odd assortment of translations I'm counting towards this third reading--but I think I'm going to try to finish up in the New King James MacArthur Student Bible.
In my nonfiction, I am halfway through Woodrow Kroll's Taking Back the Good Book. This is a reread for me--it was a book I first read in 2007--and I am loving it. I would definitely recommend it!!! I am one chapter into Vintage Jesus by Mark Driscoll. I am liking it so far--though it has a very casual approach. I am also attempting to read reading Stephen Charnock's The Existence and Attributes of God. (You can see my thoughts on the first discourse in three posts.)

Are you trying to read it through in a variety of different translations? What an intriguing idea! I have mostly only done NIV and ESV.
