The Obligatory EOY Book Post

This is the time of year that everybody posts their favorite books of the year. I’ll just show you what I read and offer a few comments for anyone who might be interested.

Goodreads | Jeff’s Year in Books

There were very good books read this year. The Crook in the Lot had the most impact on me. Communion with the Triune God was probably the best book.

Mindscape was mediocre for me. It’s really not a bad book though. I just bought into the hype at the time with all of the blurbs by people I like. I don’t think it will be around a long time. How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home was probably better as sermons, but it has good material. Horton’s systematic theology, The Christian Faith, was a whopper. It got too philosophical for me, but it was very good. I should have picked an easier one to read as my first one. I don’t feel a need to read another one anytime soon.

The rest were all very good. I learned a lot. By the way, the edition of Pilgrim’s Progress is a modernized version published by Crossway. Goodreads doesn’t have that in their system.

There will be a review of What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About coming soon.

I just happened to see that My Year in Books thing as I was adding a book to Goodreads, so I thought I’d make a post about it. I would like to read more next year than I did this year, although I’m reading more of the Bible (a post will be forthcoming about that) which takes some time away from reading other books, which is just fine.

Did you have any highlights?

  1. 1 Drewe

    I finally read CS Lewis – the Weight of Glory. Some brilliant things in there, though I may not agree with them all, they were as always well put….

  2. 2 Scripture Zealot

    I’m surprised I’ve never heard of that. It sounds like a good change of pace. Thanks.

    I have Setting Our Affections upon Glory: Nine Sermons on the Gospel and the Church by Lloyd-Jones on my list.
