Inklings

I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

Forsaken: The Trinity and the Cross, and Why It Matters - Thomas H. McCall Most excellent! McCall sets out to clear up some bad theology, and he does it well. Very readable and power packed with many deep insights. The first chapter should be a "must read" for preachers and teachers. In it he asks the question: "Did God the Father really turn His back on Jesus as He hung on the cross?" McCall opposes popular theology (siding instead with classic theology) and answers: "No!"
I greatly appreciate the fact that McCall engages many dialogue partners and looks at this subject for many angles. Fantastic! Props to IVP for publishing it.
