Only Geeks Do Year End Lists....

Well since the year is almost over I thought I would give a brief list of my favorite books I have read this year:

1. Discipleship on the Edge by Darrell Johnson
-A great walk through the book of Revelation that is extremely practical and pastoral. I could not put this book down without being challenged - a great read

2. The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan
-One of the most read books in all of English literature. The imagery in this book continually came to mind months after I read it and was deeply stimulating.

3. The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis
-An allegorical tale of a bus ride through hell and heaven. Great leisure reading, short, and very thought provoking.

4. David Martyn Lloyd-Jones: The First Forty Years by Iain H. Murray
-The first book in a two volume biography of the Welsh preacher D.M. Llyoyd-Jones. I always love reading a good biography.

5. A Puritan Golden Treasury compiled by I. D. E. Thomas
-I didn't read this cover to cover as it is a book of quotes. However it has been great to flip through.

That Discipleship on the Edge books sounds good. I'll have to pick it up.

I'm just going through Velvet Elvis a couple pages at a time. It's kind of a funny book. It can either be a book you read in a couple sittings or you can take your time and read it a couple pages at a time. Lots of meat to chew on for sure. I decided to take the latter and it's been quite fruitful.

Thanks for the suggestions Dave. God bless.

I agree, only geeks do end year lists. Especially on girly Christian reformed books. I would suggest a more manly book like... Wild at Heart by John ""the MAN" Eldgrige.

You didn't pee on your book just to make sure everyone knew it was yours did you?
