I am asking a number of friends to answer the following question: If you could wave a magical wand which caused all Christians to read five books, what works would you pick? Here is the next installment.

Next up is Michael Svigel.  Michael is Department Chair and Associate Professor of Theological Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary.  Michael has the good sense to make my wife’s book, Good Christians, Good Husbands?, required reading in his American Church History class.  Here are Michael’s picks:

Thomas Oden’s Classic Christianity
Irenaeus’s Demonstration of the Apostolic Preaching
Calvin’s Institutes
Jerry Bridges’ Trusting God
Augustine’s Confessions
