    Besides the Bible of course?

    Being an avid fiction fan, I'm currently about half way through 'Solar Flare' by Larry Burkett. I'm also reading through 'A Cry In The Wilderness,' a collection of sermons and teachings by Keith Green.

    So, what's on your nightstand?

    God Bless!!!

    I am a few chapters into "unveiling Islam" and I am reading one of the Star Wars books, the one that follows the last movie. I have read through alot of school and family discipline books for research recently too.

    No reading in the bedroom. I pop off in short order and a book would be a waste.

    On the side, I am reading four books: Grasping God's Word, Duvall and Hays,,,a book on how to understand the Bible, and The Reader's Digest Bible. It is really a condensed version of the RSV, but very readable; no chapters or verses and one can read an entire book in one sitting.

    I have been re-reading Edersheim's, The Life and Times of Jesus The Messiah, two volumes (1886).

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Not much reading in the bedroom--I'm usually out before the referee counts to two!!

    Kingdom Authority--by Dr. Adrian Rogers

    A good book. I read it years ago and really liked it.

    Right now I'm working on a book about spiritual gifts.

    Keep "short" reading on the nightstand, since I hit the hay really tired.

    Reader's Digest is indispensable.

    I also enjoy having a copy of Max Lucado's book (have In the Grip of Grace presently) as it, too, is in short snippets and no long-term plot lines or deep theology.

    Now someone needs to ask just about GENERAL reading as a topic. Then I'd share . ..

    Its gotten so bad that I have a small bookshelf at my bedside. The nightstand is usually six books deep.
    Steinbeck's East of Eden,
    An oldie, Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo
    An one I'm slowly wading through, The Copernican Revolution, planetary astronomy in the development of western thought, by Thomas Kuhn
    Exegetical Fallacies, D.A. Carson
    And a Clancy novel or two for light reading.
    Oh, and a Bible :D

    :D Hello, I have WAY to much JUNK on my night stand! But I am in the process of reading " The Power of A Praying Woman, by Stormie O'martian. Some ladies from our church get together for about an hour every Thursday afternoon and discuss it chapter by chapter. Excellent book ladies. All of her books are VERY good.
    I also am doing a Beth Moore Bible Study, "Jesus The One and Only" I do that in there too. And for recreational reading a little Jannet Oak. Right now I am reading "Once Upon A Summer"
    For now that is all I am reading. :rolleyes:
    Too much! Love in Christ Angie [​IMG]

    None of these are really on my nightstand, but here's what I'm reading right now.

    My Bibles (KJV, NKJV, and NIV).

    Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp.

    A whole bunch of commentaries on Ecclesiastes (for a paper that is due on Nov. 14th).

    The Bible Knowledge Commentary (New Testamnet).
