Summer Reading List

A Book for Every Believer’s Library: David W. Jones’ Summer Reading Recommendations

Post Icon

This summer, we want to help you craft the perfect Summer Reading List. We asked Southeastern Seminary professors what books they would recommend, and we’ll share their recommendations in coming weeks.

Today, Dr. David W. Jones recommends three books for your summer reading list.

This book is a winsome tool that ought to be in every believer’s library.

Ethics as Worship: The Pursuit of Moral Discipleship
by Mark Daniel Liederbach and Evan Lenow (P&R Publishing, 2021)

On both a personal and a cultural level, ethical questions are unavoidable. In this book, Liederbach and Lenow provide the church with a gift in that they both explain how to do ethics, as well as walking Christians through the moral subjects that are currently being discussed in the public square. This book is a winsome tool that ought to be in every believer’s library.

J. Hudson Taylor: A Man in Christ
by Roger Steer (Authentic Media, 2012)

In the Christian life, it’s helpful to note that faithful men and women of God have gone before us. Indeed, as some have observed, we have the opportunity to stand on the shoulders of spiritual giants from the past. Hudson Taylor is a name many believers know, yet few have delved into the life of this missionary pioneer. Steer’s account of Taylor’s life will encourage and challenge those who read this volume.

 

Maturity: Growing Up and Going On in the Christian Life
by Sinclair B. Ferguson (Banner of Truth, 2019)

In this volume Ferguson spurs readers on to Christ-likeness by discussing some of the essential elements of the Christian life, including: assurance, temptation, suffering, and serving, among others. Ferguson’s aim is not necessarily to present anything new, but to stir believers up to Christian maturity by reminding them of both who and whose they are in Christ.
