The August issue of Tabletalk contains an interview with Mr. Murray. 

Tabletalk: What are the top three puritan works that every Christian should read and why?

Iain Murray: The Westminster Shorter Catechism; Heaven on Earth by Thomas Brooks (on assurance); Nature and Causes of Apostasy by John Owen (Works of John Owen, vol. 7); and many other “top” ones. Beginners should start with Brooks, Thomas Watson, or John Flavel.

TT: What book (new or old) have you found the most helpful in your past year of reading?

IM: For particular reasons, the majority of my reading in 2010 was in the works of John MacArthur and Archibald Brown (I hope to see published this year The Forgotten Brown,Spurgeon’s Successor).
