    I just got 4 books from Amazon that I've been wanting to read. But now I don't know which to start with! Each one sounds so good - which should I read first?

    Holy Subversion: Allegiance to Christ in an Age of Rivals by Trevin Wax

    I do too. I posted about the four books on my blog and Trevin came to leave a comment on it! I thought that was nice. :)

    I'm 1/2 way through Dug Down Deep and love it! Last week was horribly busy with work so I didn't have a lot of reading time (worked 11 hours on Friday alone). I can see that this would be a GREAT book for a young believer to learn the basics of systematic theology. It's very comfortably written, easy to follow and is spot on theologically. I can really see that this will be a resource in our new church plant.
