CPH Reads

Ladies and gentlemen, this past Saturday marked the beginning of CPH Reads, this year’s CPH summer reading challenge. It runs through August 5, 2018 and anyone can participate, including non-readers who can be read to. 🙂

I expect many of you are familiar with their previous program, Read like a Lutheran. This one looks about the same. In short, adults can read 10 CPH adult books to reach the 1,000 points necessary to be entered into a drawing for prizes. Reading other books is fine, but give you fewer points. The grand prize is an Amazon Echo. Five will receive a copy of The Enduring Word Bible* and ten more will receive a copy of Embracing Godly Character.

I appreciate that this year the listed books are directly on the regular CPH website. I mean, why mention a title when you can include a blurb, right?

I did not need to create a new account since my family did it last year. I went to log in with my handy dandy saved information from whenever they started these (lol) and enrolled after updating my age. Then I SWITCHED to each of the kiddos’ accounts to update age and unroll them (Changing their age on the info page didn’t automatically do that.).

I have more than ten books on my CPH reads list and that is an understatement! I also appear to be doing three different reading challenges because I’m not decisive enough to choose between them. <sigh> But here are ten books I’d like to read and review this summer (although no promises!):

  1.  A Flame in the Dark, a soon-to-be-released CPH novel that I JUST finished and LOVED! Woo hoo for Sarah Baughman! Five stars and I’ll write a few blog posts and a review of it!
  2. Demystifying the Proverbs 31 Woman by Deac. Elizabeth Ahlman. I’ve read and appreciated most of it, but then I lost it! Lost but now found, I’ll start over. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
  3. The Messengers: Concealed  (I know: I’m behind in the dystopian trilogy for all ages.)
  4. The Unholy Trinity: Martin Luther against the Idol of Me, Myself and I
  5. Authentic Christianity: How Lutheran Theology Speaks to a Postmodern World
  6. Sexual Morality in a Christless World
  7. A Christian Pedagogy by Edward Koehler
    1. It’s out of print, but maybe it’s really good!
    2. AND, maybe we can make up a list of suggested books to bring back now that print-on-demand is easier than ages ago!
  8. The Fabricated LutherAdmittedly this has been on my to read shelf for a long time. But maybe this is the year!
  9. Science and the Savior: Advancing to the FutureOne of two books I hope to read this summer by Dr. Angus Menuge.
  10. Last Summer at Eden

I have others, but I’m leaning toward this stack for now. 🙂 Suggestions? Comments? Wish me well! Warm wishes to you also!

Happy CPH reads and writing, folks!

*This edition is straight-forward text with margin lines for notes, pictures you can color, verses artistically emphasized in the margin, etc. Frankly, it sounds a lot like the Bible I plugged here so good for CPH! 🙂 Keep up the good work!
