“When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.” ~ Erasmus
I was reflecting back on the books I read last year and thought I would list them to see just what I had posted. Some of the reviews of these books will be published here either as re-posts from my old blog, or new posts containing unpublished reviews. This is the list to the best of my knowledge. I am sure that there are countless blog posts, PDF’s, books I forgot about, and various journal publications that I read along the way, but these are ones I know for sure I read because I wrote reviews.
This list is in no particular order.
The Cost of Discipleship – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The Life and Diary of David Brainerd – Jonathan Edwards
The Quotable Chesterton – Kevin Belmonte
Come to the Table – John Mark Hicks
Making a Meal of It: Rethinking the Theology of the Lord’s Supper – Ben Witherington III (My Review)
Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream – David Platt (My Review)
Well, there you have it. I think the overall theme of my reading habits was “Ecclesiology” or, the study of the Church. You can probably sprinkle a bit of Christian Living and Theology in there as well. I enjoyed most of these books and I am generally not too critical in my reviews. I like to take most books as they are, allow them to impact me for what they are worth, and incorporate the views of others into my perceptions of the world. It sure makes things interesting most of the time, and helps me keep my closed mind slightly cracked!
