I ordered another book today...

..."Whatever Happened to the Gospel of Grace?: Recovering the Doctrines That Shook the World" by James Montgomery Boice. I ordered on the strength of a review which included this quote:

"No people ever rise higher than their idea of God.... We deplore the breakdown of moral standards in the church, even among its most visible leaders. But what do we think should happen when we have focused on ourselves and our own, often trivial needs rather than on God, ignoring his holiness and excusing our most blatant sins? To listen to many contemporary sermons one would think man's chief end is to glorify himself and cruise the malls." (pp. 151-152).

And also because Boice authored one my top favorite books.

My all means, read this one!
