Post by Pooka » Mon Jun 22, 2015 12:40 am

I put a fairly comprehensive list of my library of authors (that I've read) on my blog. Some reviews as well.

Great list!

Any fan of Lewis is good in my book.

Curious about your thoughts on Chesterton though. I find that a lot of people have issue with him taking more of a philosophical rather than scriptural approach to things, was this the issue that you had as well?

Also a good author, you may be interested in if you haven't read any of his works already is Fyodor Dostoyevski.

Garfield's Teddy Bear, concerning Greg Bahnsen wrote:Postmil Theonomist. Read his Theonomy in Christian Ethics. Hard, repetitive, drowning in factoids. I remain convinced he was working too hard to prove what is still conjecture.

I didn't find a real problem with Chesterton's tendency toward philosophy. I don't think I expected that from him. Not sure why, now, since it's been a while since I've read him. Should go back a flip through a few.

Took me quite a while to figure out he was just plain failing to make Scripture do what he wanted.
