Reading Plans

Since people have suggested I write about more mundane things because people like to read it, I thought I’d tell you what I plan on reading for a while, and keeps with the purpose of the blog.

Last year, as part of my “three year plan” which will end up lasting more than four years, was “the year of the Old Testament”. But with surgery right in the middle, it really slowed me down. So this year continues concentrating on the Old Testament.

I just got done with a commentary on Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi. At some point a review is coming. I loved it.

I’m going back to Genesis now. I plan to read it through, then read Creation and Blessing by Ross, then read it again. Then read Handbook on the Pentateuch.

A very generous pastor who’s name starts with an M and blogs near somewhere gave me the first volume of a commentary set on Psalms by Goldingay. I’m going to read the introduction, which I’m sure will be very helpful overview, and then read the commentary on just the first two Psalms. Then I plan on reading one Psalm a day along with The Essential Bible Companion to the Psalms and use the commentary when I have a big question, until the first volume runs out. Then I can use Spurgeon’s Treasury of David. I’m not looking so much to study at this point, just get to know them better, pray better and worship God through them. I have to admit I haven’t been as big of a fan of the Psalms as many people are and I hope this will help.

While reading Psalms I plan on reading Is God a Monster? and Knowing Jesus through the Old Testament.

All along I will continue to work on my Greek at a snail’s pace.
