Is it too late to post my favorite books from a year ago?
Here is a random list of favorite books from 2013.
1. Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriot Beecher Stowe
Our book club read this book together and I wondered why it took me so long to read this classic.
2. In His Image by Dr Paul Brand and Philip Yancy
A reread of one of my favorite books. Combines amazing facts on the human body with spiritual insights and missionary stories.
3. Some Wildflowers in My Heart by Jamie Langston Turner
I read my first Turner book and was completely smitten. A Garden to Keep and No Dark Valley quickly followed and neither disappointed. I wrote a full review of Turner's novels.
4. Instruments in the Redeemer's Hand by Paul David Tripp
This book challenged me to be used by Christ to reach out to others. I should read this one every year. Read my full review.
5. End of the Spear by Steve Saint
With all the hoopla surrounding this book several years ago, I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book. But I did. This is the rest of the story begun by Elisabeth Elliot in Through Gates of Splendor.
6.Teach Them Diligently by Lou Priolo
This book gives inspiration and practical ideas on teaching God's Word to your children.
7. War of Words by Paul David Tripp
Why are our words important? Because they emerge from the heart - and the heart is where the real battle is fought. This book peels back the layers and heads straight for the heart of our communication struggles.
8. Instructing a Child's Heart by Ted and Margy Tripp
This is the sequel to the excellent Sheperding a Child's Heart. Good; convicting.
9. The High Cost of Holistic Healing by Dr. Nolan Byler
A short book by a Mennonite bishop and medical doctor sharing his concerns on alternative medicine.
10. Outrageous Grace by Grace Fabian
A story of forgiveness when her missionary husband is murdered while translating the love chapter in 1 Corinthians.
11. A Life Embraced, A Hopeful Guide for the Pastor's Wife by Gayle Haggard
The title lured me in. I haven't always embraced this life of a pastor's wife. Encouragement even if you are not married to a church leader.
As always, I love to hear what you are reading!
