Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Theologically deep, Bonhoeffer’s Ethics is not a casual read. It is rare that I progress as slowly through a book as I have with this one. The pace is not due to lack of interest, but instead due to the depth of the content. Bonhoeffer approaches the subject of a Christian’s ethical responsibility through the lens of the Gospel and the restored unity of man’s origin in God through the substitutionary death of Christ on the cross. Though technically unfinished due to his martyrdom at the hands of the Nazis, Bonhoeffer’s Ethics is a monumental work covering a wide range of topics with a theological weightiness that I can’t help but admire. A rewarding read for those who are up to the challenge.

God Is The Gospel by John Piper

God is the ultimate treasure that makes the Gospel good. Eternal life in heaven, rescued from hell, justification, sanctification, and all the other doctrines of Christianity mean nothing if in the end we do not get God himself. In God is the Gospel, Piper encourages the Christian to reset their focus on God as the ultimate goal of the Gospel message. The good news of the Gospel is that in Christ we have been reconciled to an intimate relationship with God, presently experienced through the Holy Spirit, and soon to be realized with unveiled face in eternity with Him.
