    The Richard Hays book is certainly on the list, I actually bought it but havent read it yet. I would also like to read The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoeffer, The Politics of Jesus by John Howard Yoder, The Myth of a Christian Nation by Greg Boyd, and Seeing the Unseen by Joe Beam. Well thats at least part of the list anyway.

    The Cost of Discipleship reads like it was written last week.

    Yeah, I hear it is really a timeless book.

    Random question… I was wondering if you know my wife, her name is Rachel Griggs. She went to Harding and her best friend Kristen Coleman dated Daniel Cherry at one point. Just curious.

    I was roommates with Daniel and knew Kristen. I remember the name Rachel Griggs but can’t put a face to her. Small world 🙂
