With our new little boy, Zephaniah.
Total read: 36
Fewer than in 2012, but I had other fun things to do, like growing a baby and living with an energetic toddler!
So here they are, with occasional comments. I've only linked to reviews, this time.
The Island of Adventure by Enid Blyton
Already Gone by Ken Ham and Britt Beemer
The Lord our Shepherd by J. Douglas MacMillan
They Found a Cave by Nan Chauncy
Turning Points: Decisive Moments in the History of Christianity by Mark A. Noll (my review here)
Thunder on the Right by Mary Stewart
Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement by Kathryn Joyce (John's review here)
Maddeningly unreferenced and anecdotal. Misunderstands her subject on key points, particularly missing the point of Christian self-sacrificial living.
Leepike Ridge by N. D. Wilson (John's review here)
The Puritan Experiment in the New World (1976 Westminster Conference papers)
My Brother Michael by Mary Stewart
I liked it until the last couple of chapters. Not recommended.
Talking About Dragons by William Chad Newsom
Nothing much new here.
Fit to Burst by Rachel Jankovic
Excellent, gospel-centred mothering book. I like her sense of humour and imaginative illustrations.
Standing on the Promises by Douglas Wilson
Best parenting book I've read.
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
Ride Like an Indian by Henry V. Larom
Children's book that reads like it was written by a health and safety committee. What kid sterilizes his knife before becoming blood brothers with his best friend?
Evening in the Palace of Reason by James Gaines.
Fascinating double biography of J.S. Bach and Frederick the Great.
Asterix the Gladiator
Asterix and the Actress
Family-Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham (John's review here)
Wordsmithy by Douglas Wilson
The Four by Peter Leithart
The Light Princess by George MacDonald
Classical Education and the Homeschool by Wes Callihan, Douglas Jones and Douglas Wilson
Short, helpful introduction to the subject.
Monet by Jude Welton (Eyewitness Art series)
The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan
The Autobiography of G.K. Chesterton
Crunchy Cons by Rod Dreher
The Dean's Watch by Elizabeth Goudge
I fear she didn't believe in the resurrection.
Aunt's Aren't Gentlemen by P.G. Wodehouse
A Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola
Charlotte Mason isn't God. Sometimes Andreola sounds like she thinks differently.
The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Empire of Bones by N.D. Wilson (John's review here)
This series keeps getting better. Fascinating incorporation of theology into story.
The Last Judgement by Iain Pears
Death By Living by N.D. Wilson
If you read Empire of Bones, you need to read this too.
The Classical Cookbook by Andrew Dalby and Sally Grainger
The Lord's Service by Jeff Meyers
Not uniformly convincing, but still very helpful in thinking through liturgical matters.
