2015 Reading List

  1. Killing Lincoln, by Bill O’Reilly – fascinating, makes me wonder about the Secretary of War, Stattons, involvement in a possible conspiracy.
  2. Killing Patton, by Bill O’Reilly – also fascinating and seems like a no brainer that there was a hit put out on Patton by the CIA/OSS. Great war generals or leaders are effective at results at the expense of the fighting men they command. A tragic and revealing story.
  3. Finding Church, by Wayne Jacobson – for all of you who have ever asked, “There must be something more” or “Something isn’t quite right” concerning ‘going to church’.
  4. Firefight: book 2 The Reckoners, by Brandon Sanderson – an excellent sequel to the gripping Steelheart book. Great plot and character development while building suspense and throwing in twists.
  5. The Miracle Morning, by Hal Elrod – over the years I have let my morning spiritual disciplines suffer. This book provided me with fresh encouragement to dive back in and restart old habits and start new ones that help me be all that I want to be.
  6. The Martian, by Andy Weir – the language is strong with lots of f-bombs, but the plot is addictive. I like sci-fi and this was a page turner. Too bad we can’t get a great story with out the rough language.
  7. Sam & Dave Dig a Hole, by Mac Barnett – a picture book that is just lovely. Short story and a simple, but imaginative illustration.
  8. The Adventures of BEEKLE, the Unimaginary Friend, by Dan Santat – another picture book with a delightfully simple story and accompanying illustration.
  9. Beautiful Outlaw, by John Elderedge – experiencing the playful, disruptive, extravagant personality of Jesus.
  10. The Divine Conspiracy, by Dallas Willard
  11. Hearing God: developing a conversational relationship with God, by Dallas Willard
  12. Shift, by Hugh Howey. 2nd book in SILO trilogy. Dystopian.
  13. Dust, by Hugh Howey. 3rd book in SILO trilogy. Dystopian.
  14. Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo – Classic. French. A delightful story of God’s grace that transformed a thief into an incredibly selfless hero.
  15. Soul Print, by Mark Batterson – think through who God made you to be by using the life of King David.
