Semester est Perfectus

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 5:28 AM

Well, I turned in my last project of the semester today, and I am now off for a whole three weeks! More Greek starts in June, but I have at least a few weeks to catch up on things outside of Covenant, which is good. It has been a joy to be there this last semester, but I'm happy I can take care of the things I've let lapse.

Like reading the blogs of my fine blogosphere friends. And publishing articles. And… well, lots of things. I'm also reading Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling at the moment, which is nice (as odd as it sounds to say fear and trembling is nice). It feels good to read something of substance that is not for an assignment. I have a ton of books I want to read this summer, though I probably won't get them all, top on my list of projects would be: Christ and Culture (H. Richard Niebuhr), the Brothers Karazmov (Fydor Dostoyevsky), the Four Quartets (T.S. Eliot), and Purgatorio (Dante). What are y'all reading at the moment?

But, for now, I think a good thing to do would be to enjoy getting some sleep, so good night. :)

Congratz! I'm 1 week and 1 day outside of my most recent semester, and it certainly is nice to turn the mind to other, even if closely related, pursuits. Enjoy your reading list! It looks like a good one. I've posted my own: http://derevth.blogspot.com/2007/05/summer-plans.html

Hehe, my list is growing as well... Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards Mission of God by Christopher Wright (maybe) Calvin's Institutes Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan And I think there was one more there too, but we shall see... I am still considering Christ and Culture, so don't worry!

Thanks, WTM. Congratulations to you, on both your M.Div and new work toward your Ph.D. I am excited about my reading list. I have a lot more books I'd like to get to. Perhaps I should post them all and let my readers tell me which ones I should read. Your list looks very good as well; how did you like _Aquinas for Armchair Theologians_? Brad: It is growing! I think reading straight through the _Institutes_ sounds like a hard way to do it. But, it probably would be helpful in some respects...

Oh, and Brad, I'm glad to see you are still considering _Christ and Culture_!
