Summer Reading Recommendations by Notable Readers
The lists of recommended summer reading have been rolling out lately and some of my favorite bloggers and authors have done so. It's always useful to see what other people are reading and particularly what they consider to have been good reading!
Al Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has published three blog entries giving an annotated list of recommendations:
Ten for the History Books -- Summer Reading Part 1
Ten for the History Books -- Summer Reading Part 2
Books for Guys -- Maybe for Dad, Maybe for Son, Maybe for You
Al Mohler also put out a thoughtful look at the threat to libraries posed by the Internet and the digital revolution: The Citadel and the Open Space - Will the Library Survive in the Internet Age?
C.J. Mahaney, leader of Sovereign Grace Ministries and friend of Al Mohler's, responded with his own, lighter, reading list:
Books for the Beach
And lastly, Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, and author of the recent The Reason for God, a very good read itself, has given this list:

Enjoy! I hope you find the time...
