2013 In The Books

I’ve seen some folks catalogue the most influential books they’ve ever read. Less ambitiously, I’d like to share a list of influential books I read in 2013—one for each month and in no particular order. 

Obviously, this list in no way serves as an affirmation of all the things contained in the works; but it does enumerate books which shaped, enlivened, informed, challenged, or reinforced my thinking in the past year. 

1. “The Descent of Man,” Charles Darwin 

2. “The Real Lincoln,” Thomas DeLorenzo 

3. “Intellectuals and Race,” Thomas Sowell 

4. “The Distinctiveness of Baptist Covenant Theology,” Pascal Denault 

5. “Strange Fire,” John MacArthur 

6. “Seven Days That Divide the World,” John Lennox 

7. “The Same Sex Controversy,” James White 

8. “C.S. Lewis—A Life,” Alister McGrath 

9. “Toward a Truly Free Market,” John Medaille 

10. “Galileo Goes To Jail—And Other Myths About Science and Religion,” ed. Ronald Numbers 

11. “Inspiration and Incarnation,” Peter Enns 

12. “Faith Has Its Reasons,” Kenneth Boa and Robert Bowman, Jr.  

The above books, and all books, should be read in conjunction with and through the lens of God’s holy word, The Bible. As I like to advise (much to the chagrin of some of my readers): Eat the meat and spit out the bones. 

Read carefully, my friends.
