July 2012 Goals
So do I have a goal for July?! Yes. My Bible-reading goal is to read 10 to 15 chapters a day--which should be about 70 chapters a week. I hope to read a balance of Old Testament and New Testament. I would love to finish the New Testament this month since I didn't finish it in June. I'm not sure which translation I'll be focusing on this month, I may have one or two that I "focus" on more than others, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a little variety.
The first book I'll be reading is a newly published edition of CHARITY AND ITS FRUITS: Living in the Light of God's Love by Jonathan Edwards. It is edited by Kyle Strobel and published by Crossway. It is around 350 pages--and I'm 92 pages into it! If all goes well, I hope to finish it this week! If all doesn't go well, I really, really need to have it finished by next week!
I'm not sure the next book qualifies as theology--but, it is certainly still nonfiction, but, I NEED to read Roger Thurow's The Last Hunger Season. The due date for this one is July 20, 2012! Another nonfiction book with a due date is Linda Evans Shepherd's When You Need a Miracle: How To Ask God for the Impossible.
As for reading from my own towering stack of theology--I'd LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to read some Martyn Lloyd Jones, A.W. Pink, A.W. Tozer, Charles Spurgeon, J.C. Ryle. And maybe, maybe some John Piper and John MacArthur!!!
