"Towards an Old Testament Theology" by Walter Kaiser, Jr. Quite an amazing study of the Old Testament and how God's "promise" towards "the seed" has unfolded. Though somewhat technical in nature (much of the technical chatter is reserved for footnotes), it is a great study. Especially if you embrace an Art Katz theology.

My next date night with my wife is to go to Barnes and Noble and read!
This really is enjoyable. Browsing through a pile of books with a nice cup of coffee is especially appealing during the winter.

A couple of intriguing recent titles...
Graven Images New England Stone carving and it's Symbols' 1650-1815. The oft misunderstood and misrepresented Puritans continue to surprise...this photo survey of their grave carvings is no exception.
Life and Leisure in Ancient Rome It's too bad 95% of history books are really just about wars and kings. This little book is a happy exception. It's the boring stuff that ancient people did all day with their lives that connects us with them.
The Art of Prophesying Many here at SI are well aware that the Puritans took the pastoral role of public preaching and praying God's word seriously. (Special thanks to Paul West for bringing this one up a few weeks ago.)

Amen and AMEN! And historians wonder why children and adults are so turned off by history??!! Reading most history books you would think the only people that lived in ages past were the armies and the politicians. And you see the same mindset in recorded church history. You get the idea that all churches consisted of is preachers, their sermons and squabbles. What about the people in the pew? What happened to life where it meets the road? This is the story I want to hear and read about, be it secular or religious.
History should be about people: not just a few who are in some leadership positions, like some 'king' or 'pope', be it church or state.
