book list for dad [and my OCD materialism]

My dad told me to make a list of books I might like for Christmas. Usually, I'm quick to say I don't need anything. Somehow though, I can always justify moving books from the want column to the need column. This puzzles and sometimes bothers me. Owell.

  1. VINTAGE CHURCH [Driscoll and Breshears]
  2. THE ART OF READING SCRIPTURE [Davis and Hays]
  3. COMMENTARY ON THE NT USE OF THE OT [Beale and Carson]
  4. THE UBS GREEK NEW TESTAMENT: A READER'S EDITION
  5. JESUS WANTS TO SAVE CHRISTIANS [Bell]
  6. THE MORAL VISION OF THE NEW TESTAMENT [Hays]
  7. WORLDLINESS: RESISTING THE SEDUCTION OF A FALLEN WORLD [Mahaney]

Maybe I got it from him. Me and Pops like to go to http://www.dealoz.com/ and drool over books we don't have. This website gives you the cheapest place online to find the price, the shipping, and the total to whatever book you're hunting - all on one page! Don't thank me because if you're like me, it will be your doom!

Zondervan's "A Reader's Greek New Testament" is really cool... maybe the one you have listed there is better, but this one has the definitions of every word that occurs less than 30 times in the footnotes, so no turning to the back... however, it only mentions the most controversial variations...
