Stages of faith is a great book, especially if you are in Christian Education.  Another book I enjoyed are Generation to Generation--this book applies family systems theory  to congregational dynamics.  Both are somewhat dated, but the insights still apply.

I would not consider this a Theological book per se  but a  wonderful book on the Beatitudes by  Dr. Heidi Baker  "Compelled by Love".  This a book by someone who actually  "walks the walk" and gives us real life examples  of what that means.

Has anyone read The Hammer of God by Bo Giertz?  Apparently, it explores Lutheran pietism and orthodoxy.  It may go on my reading list.

Very good book. It's a novel that goes from 18th cent. (I think) rural Sweden through the 19th and then into the 1930s in the same parish.

Just finished Mark Alan Powell's little book, "Giving to God."  It is a book on stewardship.  Very readable and thought provoking.  I think he is one of the most prolific Lutheran writers out there at this time.  Eveything I have read from him has been insghtful. 


Another Lutheran Writer I have enjoyed is Barbara Rossing.  She has written a number of books on the Apocolypse.  My favorite was The Rapture Exposed: a Message of Hope in Revelations.
