summer reading plans

Dear Faithful Readers,

 This summer, I am hoping to get in some good reading.  So far, I’ve read:

      Real Sex: The Naked Truth about Chasitity by Lauren Winner

            I recommend this book for anyone interested in a more comprehensive argument for chasitity than “because you’re (not) supposed to.” 

     Mudhouse Sabbath by Lauren Winner

           Lauren Winner converted to Christianity from Orthodox Judaism, and in this book, she discusses how some of the key tenets of Judaism hold truths that are applicable to the Christian walk as well.

     How to Read a Christian Book by David McKenna 

          This book covers how to choose a book, how to build a library, and how to read well.  While a lot of it is fairly basic, this book does have several lists of recommended books and a three-year plan for reading a book a month in various areas of Christian growth.  This book actually prompted this post, as I am trying to decide what to read this summer.

I want to read purposefully this summer while I have time.  My next book to read is The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which I have started before and stopped to “chew” on.  So, my question for you is: What else should I read?  I’m planning to copy and use the lists from How to Read a Christian Book, but have you read anything that you would highly recommend?
