New Books Day!

The one things I really like about the beginning of any semester is that I get to buy books. It’s even better if one of your professors averages about ten books per class and all of his classes are related to historical theology. Well, thanks to Amazon Student, I not only got my books cheaper, but also quicker as I have free two-day shipping for a year! So, I’ve officially concluded that today is a very good day.

Here are the books I received in alphabetical order with the class name in parentheses:

  • Cell Groups and House Churches: What History Teaches Us by Peter Bunton (Historical IV: Modern Church)
    Evagrius of Pontus: The Greek Ascetic Corpus by Evagrius of Pontus, tr. and commentary by Robert E. Sinkewicz (Prayer and Spiritual in the Early Church)
  • Genesis: A Commentary by Bruce K. Waltke (OTII: Pentateuch)
  • The Institutes by John Cassian (Prayer and Spirituality in the Early Church)
  • The Ladder of Divine Ascent by John Climacus (Prayer and Spirituality in the Early Church)
  • Lectures on the Christian Sacrament by St. Cyril of Jerusalem (Prayer and Spirituality in the Early Church)
  • A Letter Concerning Toleration by John Locke (Historical IV: Modern Church)
  • Evagrius  of Pontus: Talking Back: Antirrhetikos: A Monastic Handbook for Combating Demons by Evagrius of Pontus, tr. by David Brakke (Prayer and Spirituality in the Early Church)

And that’s not even all of them! Okay, this is the inner materialist/consumerist talking. Maybe taking a class on Prayer and Spirituality in the Early Church will help combat such evil inclinations. But for now I’ll enjoy it. 🙂
