I've been buried in various books and articles for the semester. My reading for school included many tomes. One of my favorite was the masterful volume, The Voyage and Shipwreck of St. Paul by James Smith. There were many others, such as St. Paul the Traveler and Roman Citizen, by William M. Ramsay. Backgrounds of Early Christianity by Everett Ferguson. Paul: A Guide for the Perplexed by Timothy G. Gombis. Ships and Seamanship in the Ancient World by Lionel Casson. Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind by Tremper Longman
Included in my reading for school was a slew of reading for a theoretical thesis proposal, Image, Identity, and the Forming of the Augustinian Soul by Matthew Drever, Perception, Sensibility, and Moral Motivation in Augustine, by . Sarah Catherine Byers, a host of material from James K. A. Smith, including Desiring the Kingdom, and Imagining the Kingdom. A few books on how to write, such as, The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods by A.G. Sertillanges. and Stylish Academic Writing by Helen Sword. There were others, though they escape me now.
