Books for June 2010

I read these books in June:
Foolishness to the Greeks: The Gospel in Western Culture by Lesslie Newbigin: this book was great, and very stimulating in thinking about culture and philosophical ideas. I think a couple of Newbigin's conclusions go a little too far, but given that this book was written 25 years ago, it is surprisingly prescient still today (and the age might also explain my thoughts on those few conclusions). (9+)
Counterfeit Gods by Tim Keller: as usual, Keller delivers. This time he takes on the idea of idolatry, which plagues all of us, and offers such helpful insight into the causes, symptoms, and biblical solutions to idolatry. (9+)
