People, for whatever reason, sometimes ask me for book recommendations. I am usually really bad at tracking what I have read in a year, so below will be an attempt to list the books I am working through and have finished in 2016. I used to not track the books I read in a year for fear of pride, but reading has become such a natural instinct to me that I am confident my goal here is to serve the community. This also acts as an indirect form of accountability and an avenue for conversations with both friends and strangers. Once a book is finished, I will write a brief blurb on the kind of person who might appreciate the work.
Regardless if whether you find something helpful on here or not, I encourage you to “Tolle lege,” or “take up and read,” not for your glory, but for God’s glory.
