A while back I asked several pastors and theologians what sermons or essays they would recommend that had a special impact on them, or that they would seriously urge students and pastors to consider reading. I thought it might be helpful to repost some of these by individual author.
Here are recommendations from Carl Trueman, professor of church history and historical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia:
- R. V. G. Tasker, “The Biblical Doctrine of the Wrath of God“
- Martin Luther, “Two Kinds of Righteousness“
- George Orwell, “Politics and the English Language” [Trueman writes: “This is the most brilliant statement (and example) of clear prose—something which pastors and theologians need to grasp.”]
