Books read from January through March. Running count: 8.
Changing the Subject: Art and Attention in the Internet Age – Sven Birkerts (2015); Library // Very good collection of essays exploring media/technology, pleasure, and beauty.
Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less – Greg McKeown (2014); Library // Meh.
Hannah Coulter – Wendell Berry (2004); Print // Earthy, moving fiction centered around place and characters, with little plot. Very, very good.
James: Reformed Expository Commentary – Dan Doriani (2007); Print // Not quite finished yet, but still including here. Pretty good; mostly pastoral/practical rather than scholarly (which is okay by me).
Lest We Forget: A Personal Reflection on the Formation of the OPC – Robert Churchill (1997); Print // Insightful and emotional personal perspective of the OPC’s formation.
Peace at Last: The Third Book of the Dun Cow – Walter Wangerin, Jr. (2013); Print // Conclusion of the Dun Cow trilogy; much shorter and not nearly as good as the first two, but a decent conclusion.
Walking with God through Pain and Suffering – Tim Keller (2013); Print // One of the best non-fiction books I’ve read in a long time. Biblical, philosophical, practical, comprehensive look at suffering and Scripture. Highly recommended.
Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys – Stephen James (2009); Print // Helpful and enjoyable, especially the sections on neurological and emotional development of young boys.
