It's time to post another list of books I've read in the past twelve months.
I've included links to the books I reviewed here on the blog.
Passionate Housewives Desperate for God -- Stacy MacDonald and Jennie Chancey
Nothing particularly new to me here. I thought the story bookends were a bit superfluous.
Created to Be His Helpmeet -- Debbie Pearl
I don't really get what all the fuss is about. But then, maybe I was brought up in a patriarchal culture.
Intended for Pleasure --Ed Wheat
By far the best of the books my mom and I read together prior to my marriage. Very helpful preparation for marital intimacy.
Confessions --St. Augustine
John and I read this together while we were courting. I was struck by Augustine's humility.
Sketches of Home --Suzanne Clark
Black and Tan --Douglas Wilson
The Complete Stories --Dorothy Sayers
Finally, I've read all the short stories, including Montague Egg.
Persuasions --Douglas Wilson
Primeval Saints --James Jordan
84 Charing Cross Rd --Helene Hanff
Young, Restless, Reformed --Collin Hansen
Subtitled "A journalist's journey with the new Calvinists". I enjoyed reading about young people who are excited about the reformed faith.
Cold Comfort Farm --Stella Gibbon
Meet the Austins --Madeleine L'Engle
Fahrenheit 451 --Ray Bradbury
Lincoln's Dreams --Connie Willis
Perhaps more disturbing! But I did enjoy it.
Publish and Perish --Sally S. Wright
From the Holy Mountain --William Dalrymple
The Daughter of Time -- Josephine Tey
The Paradoxes of Mr. Pond --G.K. Chesterton
Reaching Forward: From a Rich Heritage to a Certain Goal --Allan and Mairi Harman
Radical Refomission --Mark Driscoll
Her Father's Daughter --Gene Stratton Porter
I have to say I was quite shocked at the white supremacist philosophy expressed throughout Her Father's Daughter. That, and the fact that the story is overlong, makes this my least favourite of Porter's books.
The Labours of Hercules --Agatha Christie
A Murder is Announced --Agatha Christie
Glorious Things, A Protestant's Guide to London --Bob Thomas
Sheriff's Badge --Rebekah Brown
Bound for Glory --R. C. Sproul, Jr.
Death and Restoration --Iain Pears
Invisible Forms --Kevin Jackson
A Study in Scarlet --Arthur Conan Doyle
