The Books I Read This Year

BOOKS I READ THIS YEARFor the past several years, I’ve annually set a goal to read one book every single week during the coming year. Three years ago I got relatively close to this goal, completing a little over forty books. Two years ago I think my average was closer to one book every two weeks. And this year I’m capping it out with my worst performance ever, having read just twelve books during 2013. But honestly, who cares! I know you probably don’t. So with no further ado, here are the books I did read during 2013:

Best non-fiction book of the year:  The Gospel in a Pluralist Society – Lesslie Newbigin

Best fiction book of the year:  The Cuckoo’s Calling – Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling)

Surprisingly good book of the year:  Erasing Hell – Francis Chan & Preston Sprinkle (surprising because of how kindly and thoroughly Chan & Sprinkle debunk the pseudo-scholarship of Rob Bell’s Love Wins).

Complete List:

  • The Holiness of God – RC Sproul
  • Everyday Church – Tim Chester & Steve Timmis
  • Love Wins – Rob Bell
  • Erasing Hell – Francis Chan & Preston Sprinkle
  • Tribes – Seth Godin
  • Robert Ludlum’s the Utopia Experiment – Kyle Mills
  • Across the River and Into the Trees – Ernest Hemingway
  • The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway
  • Does God Desire All to Be Saved? – John Piper
  • Five Points – John Piper
  • The Gospel in a Pluralist Society – Lesslie Newbigin
  • The Cuckoo’s Calling – Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling)
