    I would add “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy.

      certainly feel free to add it.

    One of the most influential books in my life was “The Language of God” by Francis C. Collins.

    Liberation theology be damned, huh? Always appreciate your work, Christian, but nothing from or about MLK, Zora Neale Hurston, Alice Walker, Jon Sobrino, Oscar Romero, Paulo Freire, Gustavo Gutierrez, Cornel West, Mary Daly? Maybe the emergent church is too busy saving the 50s church to notice?

  • Robert Thomas

    UNconditional? The Call of Jesus to Radical Forgiveness, Brian Zahnd
    The Upside-Down Kingdom, Donald B Kraybill

  • Ian Carmichael

    And the most wonderful thing about this list is the fact that more people have opinions about most books than have claimed to read them!!
    Moltmann would not be surprised: he noted in his autobiography (‘A Broad Place’) a time when he was surprised at people who strongly disapproved of his writing without having read it!
