What I want this post to be about are specific books that I feel are important to read, perhaps even re-read. These are books that have especially shaped or edified me in some way. I've tried not to include Bibles, commentaries or reference books in this list, but there are a few here that I'm sure some would consider reference material.
These are in no particular order.

And last, but not least:

I've only included books that I've read cover to cover. The only exceptions are Calvin's Institutes and Grudem's Systematic Theology (all though I'm very close to having read it cover to cover).
So, my question to you, is what should I read next? What is one book that is not on this list that has shaped you in some way that you would recommend?
