    That sounds very interesting! I’ll have to check it out.

    The Bible Today by C.H. Dodd. Dodd was fascinated by the narrative aspect of Scripture.

    Ancient Christian Worship by Andrew B. McGowan is what I'm currently (slowly) reading for a bit of study.

    I’ve just started The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr.
    Don’t take this as a recommendation, I think he’s a post Christian New Age mystic with a thin shell of orthodoxy.

    I am reading
    Creation and the Cross: The Mercy of God for a Planet in Peril [Kindle Edition]
    By: Elizabeth A. Johnson

    I am only reading it because it is part of a theology class and it is just ok. I haven't read a lot yet and we read it in bits and pieces and then talk about it, comparing it with scripture etc, so it will take a long time to get through it all, I think. If it hadn't been required reading, I wouldn't be reading it - so not much of a recommendation I know.

    I'm currently reading The Heritage of Anglican Theology by Packer. Folks who enjoy history would probably like this book.

    I’m currently reading Schleiermacher’s The Christian Faith, and am finding it to be a much more rewarding exercise than I even expected.
