I saw someone else throw out their future reading list and thought I would put on (virtual) paper the books that plan and hope to read between now and the Summer.

Some of these are contingent on my actually obtaining a copy of the text mentioned, but a boy can hope.

Currently Reading:

Binding the Strong Man: A Political Reading of Mark’s Story of Jesus by Ched Myers.

The Politics of Jesus by John Howard Yoder. Second time through. Too much quality to let it sit on the shelf.

Homilies on the Book of the Revelation Volume One by Archimandrite Athanasios Mitilinaios. Borrowed from a friend at work. A look at Revelation from a Greek Orthodox perspective. Refreshing.

An Introduction to Mennonite History edited by Cornelius J. Dyck.

What About Hitler?: Wrestling with Jesus’s Call to Nonviolence in an Evil World by Robert Brimlow. Second time through, but this time with my wife. It is an amazing, challenging read.

Transforming Church in Rural America by Shannon O’dell.

Jesus and the Disinherited by Howard Thurman. This is a powerful read so far. Definitely impacting me already.

Culture Makers: A Worldview Approach to Re-engaging the World by Josiah Vencel. Wife and I will read it together. The author’s a friend of ours.

Future Reading:

“Come Out My People!”: God’s Call Out of Empire in the Bible and Beyond by Wes Howard-Brook. This one won’t be published until next month I believe.

All on Fire: William Lloyd Garrison and the Abolition of Slavery by Henry Mayer. Do not own a copy yet.

Hutterite Beginnings: Communitarian Experiments during the Reformation by Werner Packull.

Neglected Voices: Peace in the Old Testament by David Leiter. Do not own a copy yet.

The Naked Anabaptist by Stuart Murray. Do not own a copy yet.

The Faiths of the Founding Fathers by David Holmes. Do not own a copy yet.

Marpeck: A Life of Dissent and Conformity by Walter Klaassen and William Klassen. Do not own a copy yet.

Unveiling Empire: Reading Revelation Then and Now by Wes Howard-Brook and Anthony Gwyther. Do not own a copy yet.

I do not plan on reading these in this order. But, if I’m able to snag copies, at my current reading pace I’d be able to have these done by late Summer of next year. All in God’s time, though. My list is always subject to change. My wishlist currently has 129 items in it with about 15 or so set to Highest priority. I can’t control myself.

If anyone has any recommendations, feel free to drop them in the comments. Always looking for a good text to pick up.
