What Books Should Young Christian Scholars Read?

Later this month, I’ll be representing the Emerging Scholars Network at Urbana 12, InterVarsity’s triennial student missions conference. I’m leading a seminar called “Serving Christ as a Professor,” and I’m looking for books to add to our recommended reading list for undergraduates. From my post at the Emerging Scholars Blog:

One of my favorite things about conferences is learning about new books — or, even better, old books that I somehow hadn’t known about. Most of the attendees at Urbana are undergraduates, so the conference is a great opportunity to send them away with a fresh reading list for the new year.

What books about the life of the mind, the academy, and spiritual formation should we recommend?

Visit the Emerging Scholars Blog to see the list of books we recommended at Urbana 09, as well as the great suggestions we’ve received from the ESN community.
