Great Works

C. S. Lewis once wrote

“I can’t imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once.”

and

“The sure mark of an unliterate man is that he considers ‘I’ve read it already’ to be a conclusive argument against reading a work.…Those who read great works, on the other hand, will read the same work ten, twenty, or thirty times during the course of their life.”

Here is a list of books that I’ve read several times and repeatedly find their way onto my reading stack. I’ve excluded the books that are a constant part of my reading and studying, namely, the Holy Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions in the Book of Concord.

In no particular order…

  1. To Serve Them All My Days (R. F. Delderfield)
  2. Dying to Live: The Power of Forgiveness (Harold Senkbeil)
  3. The Hammer of God (Bo Giertz)
  4. The Theology of the Cross (Daniel Deutschlander)
  5. Clabbered Dirt, Sweet Grass (Gary Paulsen)
  6. Handbook of Consolations (Johann Gerhard)
  7. The Spirituality of the Cross (Gene Edward Veith)
  8. The Proper Distinction between Law and Gospel (C. F.W Walther)
  9. Ministry, Word, and Sacraments: An Enchiridion (Martin Chemnitz)
