"Two posts have recently got me thinking.
The first concerning verses/passages worth memorising. As you know I am a great fan of memorising Scripture... Might I suggest the following are worth the effort:
The prologue to John's Gospel, 1:1-18
Plus individual verses like: Genesis 15:6; Judges 6:14; Isaiah 43:25; Jeremiah 29:11; Micah 6:8; Zephaniah 3:17; Matthew 20:28; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 3:21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 11:1; James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:7 - to name a few.
Second - the question of which one book you would recommend to folk going to seminary....
I thought about "Knowing God" by JI Packer, or "The Divine Conspiracy" Dallas Willard, or "Christ plays in ten thousand places" by Peterson - and all of them are good. But I wonder whether a less "heavy" tome is what is needed to help someone who is in a crisis - a book that they might be likely to read at such a time. My humble suggestion is, "The Jesus I never knew" by Yancy - all about Jesus, written to keep a person focused on the essentials, easy to read yet very profound, and the author himself confessed it was written in response to theological training that had undermined his faith."
