Books I've read this year:
Scandalous by DA Carson In a nutshell, the uniqueness of the way God saved us from our sins is scandalous. Carson looks at the unusual way Jesus lived, died and was resurrected--we've heard the story and take it for granted.
The Chronicles of Narnia I like to read this series every year. The books are so encouraging, wholesome and uplifting. I finish each book with a smile of satisfaction.
In process: America's Great Depression by Murray Rothbard This book on economics and business cycles was written in 1963, but when I read the first chapter, I thought it had been written recently. Solomon's adage that "There is nothing new under the sun" certainly holds true when it comes to government and economics. Although this is not a quick read, I have gained understanding of the underlying principles of how the economy works.
I've also read a Jeeves and Wooster book--my favorite type of light reading because it is silly and fun--no worries!
