    As a child, Chronicles of Narnia was my first inspiration to read. Prior to that, I hated reading. After that series I became easily definable as a bookworm. I even read encyclopedias (not that those were particularly impacting on my life, though)! =P

    Other books that impacted my life. Hmmm, Discover your Destiny by Cary Schmidt was good. What Love Is This by Dave Hunt was certainly an interesting read. Most of the stuff by Jim Berg is awesome, especially Changed Into His Image. Simply God by James Cantelon was a good look at theology. Anything by Gene Edwards is an absolute must! He is one of the best Christian writers I’ve ever read!! =D

    I have a few good books in my time :) I am actually in the process of reading and rereading some of them listed here:

    Changed into His image – Jim Berg, I read it when I first became a Christian so 4 years on and rereading it again is an interesting experience. It has been very insightful and has given new insight into myself. I am on the last chapter now.

    The Discipline of Grace – Jerry Bridges, I could have the title wrong but this is a fantastic book and I’d recommend it to everyone. Understanding how the gospel plays out in a Christians day to day is vital.

    Created for His glory – Jim Berg, I don’t remember if I read it or not but it is next in my list of books to read after the one above. It’s a ‘sequal’ in my understanding to his first book.

    Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology, I have read a good portion of it but haven’t finished it yet. A very good book and a lot easier to understand than say Calvin’s Institutes.

    And a few others I cannot think of at the moment!

    thanks Ben,

    Leland Reyken’s (father of Phillip Ryken) wrote a great book called Effective Bible Teaching that I found profoundly helpful too.

    enjoyed the Deliberate Church by Dever as you have recommended.

    I am enjoying your weekly contributions to infocus.

    – Chronicles of Narnia was a childhood favourite too! I remember my sister reading it to me.
    – Alen: you might enjoy Millard Erickson’s Christian Theology. And it’s easier to read than Grudem. :)

    I might get around to it eventually, my ‘promise’ to myself is to finish the books I’ve already purchased before getting any others. I am hoping to get them all done by mid next year, looking at the rate I am going :)

    This of course excludes my Logos books :D
