100 Theology/Christian Books I Should Have Read by Now

Inspired by the challenge of the same title over at Gabriel Reads, I decided to post up a list of theological or otherwise Christian books (by that I mean the books that wouldn’t count academically) that I should have read by now. I have not decided whether I would actually take up the challenge or just slowly read through the list, but this list includes books I’ve skimmed through/speed read and thought would read again someday, books I’ve read halfway through and books that simply interest me very much. Oh, and also the “classics” which have been mentioned far too often in my classes and I should probably at least get some more of. This list consists of 100 books but I will probably start another list soon. I will cross out those I have finished reading. Also, for my own sake, it will include both English and Indonesian books. Translated works will be mentioned in the translated title, otherwise I might not find them on my shelf. LOL. Oh, and all are books I actually have on my shelves.
