It's that fun time of the year again. Book lists! Here are twelve books I plan to read in the coming year.
Books that are presents from my husband:
True Companion by Nancy Wilson Finished in June
This is a reworking of the Pastor's Wife e-mails that Nancy has been writing for the past few years. I find her advice biblical and practical.
The Book Lover's Cookbook
A present for our fourth anniversary.
The Pastor's Wife by Sabina Wurmbrand
I'm reading this as a companion to John's Lenten reading.
Pulpit and Communion Table by John Duncan
This will be my Sunday book.
Books on Raising Children:
Instructing a Child's Heart by Ted Tripp
Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum by Laura Berquist Finished in March
I like to read one book on homeschooling every year. This one is from a Catholic perspective.
Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine Finished in March
This is written by a childhood friend.
Holy is the Day by Carolyn Weber Finished in January
This looks like another book about motherhood burnout, which seems a popular topic these days. But I'm interested because her book Surprised by Oxford was so good.
Black Ships Before Troy by Rosemary Sutcliff Finished in February
Illustrated by Alan Lee.
Boys of Blur by N.D. Wilson Finished in April
I like this author so much that I think I'll be reading anything he writes from now on.
How to Read the Bible as Literature by Leland Ryken
I attempted this last year. Maybe I'll finish this time!
Exegetical Fallacies by D.A. Carson
This book is about things like the etymological fallacy.
