I’m physically exhausted. In the past 5 days I’ve sat in on 38 hours of lectures on the doctrine of redemption. What I heard in those 38 hours was to be the equivalent of an entire semester’s worth of lectures… yeah… it was amazing, but very hard to digest it all. I assume that as I take next week to wade through the reading assignments that much of what is now a blur will become much more clear, and hopefully precious and glorious.
During our 38 hours of lectures, Dr. Swain recommended more than a couple books for us to pick up and read some day. I added them to my amazon wishlist, but wanted to post them here as a recommendation to anyone who might be interested… or who wants to buy me one… specifically one of the more expensive ones;)
The Holy Spirit (Contours of Christian Theology)
The Christian’s Reasonable Service (4 Volume Set)
The Mystery of the Trinity: Trinitarian Experience and Vision in the Biblical and Patristic Tradition
The Cross From A Distance: Atonement In Mark’s Gospel (New Studies in Biblical Theology)
Jesus and the Victory of God (Christian Origins and the Question of God, Volume 2)
Commentary of Dr. Zacharias Ursinus on the Heidelberg Catechism
And, while he didn’t toot his own horn and recommend it in class, there is also Swain’s own book Father, Son and Spirit: The Trinity and John’s Gospel (New Studies in Biblical Theology)
So, there you have it… I need a nap.
