Reading Schedule for February 2012

The preacher should not only read the Bible systematically, but reading for the soul. Books that will feed the soul that is will help you understand and enjoy the Scripture and to prepare you for the pulpit. For example the Puritans. Then reading for the mind. The more purely intellectual type of reading. For example theology, and church history.

I am going to try to read in the morning (on the Kindle Fire)

  1. Wayne Grudem: Systematic Theology.  I will read. Part One: The Doctrine of the Word of God.
  2. Early Christian Thinkers: The lives and legacies of Twelve Key Figuers of the 1 and 2 century.

In the Evening: I am going to read:

  1. D.M. Lloyd Jones:  Preaching and Preachers. I have read about 55% thus far.
  2. John R.W. Scott’s : Preacher’s Portrait: Some New Testament Word Studies. Will start in February.

Sermon Preparation:

  1. Romans study for Sunday Morning
  2. I am going to finish up Philippians
  3. Then I am going to start the study of the Gospel of Luke. (I have never taught Luke before) So this should be a challenge.

And of course I am going to read or listen to the Bible as well.

Then I try to read a little from “The Digital Puritan:

In this Vol 1 No. 4 the following writers

  1. The Means and Method of Healing the Church: Edward Reynolds (1599-1676)
  2. A Discourse of Self-Examination: Stephen Charnock (1628-1680
  3. Confession of Sin: Jose Caryl (1602-1673
  4. Resolutions by Johnathan Edwards  (1703 to 1758)
