The hosts of the Threshing Floor are all big book nerds. There you go, it is out in public. While we all have different books we absolutely love, we want to share a few certain books with you.
In this episode, each of our three hosts share their own opinion of the best books for Wesleyans. They run the gamut from modern books to foundational documents for the Wesleyan movement.
The New Testament and the People of God by N. T. Wright
A Real Christian: The Life of John Wesley by Kenneth J. Collins
The Epic of Eden by Sandra Richter
Called To Be Holy by John N. Oswalt
John Wesley on the Christian Life by Fred Sanders
John Wesley’s Sermons by Albert Outler
We have another conversation about what excites us in modern contemporary worship. Worship music is taking a turn in artistic and contextual direction. There are Catholic writers (Matt Maher, Audrey Assad) as well as local churches developing their own cultural sound (Hillsong Young & Free, Elevation, Mars Hill).
On the completely unrelated side some thoughts about movies in 2014 come up, Chad shares the Maximus theory about Russell Crowe movies and Joshua sounds like Optimus Prime. We talk about a funny little mix up with the Seedbed App podcast feed in the last episode.
What is your recommendation for the best book(s) for Wesleyans?
