I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

My AAR/SBL Reading List for 2016

I purchased several books at the American Academy of Religion and the Society for Biblical Literature Conferences that just ended. Every year I purchase books--for a bibliophile like me it's impossible to just look.

In any case, here is what I purchased and plan to read in 2016:

James D.G. Dunn, Neither Jew nor Greek: A contested Identity. Christianity in the Making, Volume 3. I have yet to read Jimmy's first two volumes in the series, but I plan to plow through all three books this summer.

Kyle Greenwood, Scripture and Cosmology: Reading the Bible Between the Ancient World and Modern Science.

Stanley Hauerwas, The Work of Theology.

Keith E. Johnson, Rethinking the Trinity & Religious Pluralism: An Augustinian Assessment.

Roger E. Olson, Counterfeit Christianity: The Persistence of Errors in the Church.

David E. Wilhite, The Gospel According to Heretics: Discovering Orthodoxy through Early Christological Conflicts.

Kermit Zarley, Solving the Samaritan Riddle: Peter's Kingdom Keys Explain Early Spirit Baptism.

What books are you planning to read in 2016 on ANY topic? All of us have different interests, to be sure. Feel free to post them in the comments.

Of these, I've only read Olson's so far. As to next year's reading, I don't have any plans yet. Since our institution has gone bookless, I'll be spending more time finding resources available online for free that are appropriate for students.
