current favorite authors

Wednesday, August 30, 2006
Disclaimer: I truly am a little embarrassed, since everyone I've listed is a guy and all the theological types are protestants! I've listed mostly in the order the authors came to mind, categorizing each writer according to their literary genre or type I'm most familiar with. If you visit my other blogs, you'll notice I'm cross-posting; I expect to remember some omissions, so most likely I'll be adding to these lists.
Mostly Prose:

William Faulkner
Walter Brueggemann
Tony Campolo
Martin Luther
Martin Luther King
Paul Tillich
Martin Buber
Robert Farrar Capon
Max Lucado
Rick Bragg
James Cone
Matthew Fox
James Agee

Mostly Poets:

Hermann Hesse
Heinrich Heine
Conrad Aiken
Walt Whitman

1 Peter 1:8

With His Spirit He Sought Us...

Sweet Dying Lamb | Jamie Owens © 1973 Lexicon Music, Inc.

With His own hand He made us;
With His love He forgave us;
With His mercy He saved us when we'd wandered away.
With His own Word He taught us;
With His Spirit He sought us;
With His own blood He bought us when we'd all gone astray.

Oh sing praise to the Savior, Oh sing praise to His name
O precious Jesus my Savior, He's forever the same.
I will sing hallelujah to the sweet dying Lamb Who is risen triumphant
And is coming again.

Spirit Sought

1 Peter 2:9

I love this text but this design seriously needs redoing in Illustrator; nevertheless, I wanted to post this original version:

Self-explanatory...a few weeks ago I preached on this text:
