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 Successo_r).
