Books I’ve enjoyed reading in 2019

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since my last post. Been busy moving house. I’m only catching my breath now. They say moving house is the next most stressful thing after a family member dying. I always thought the former was a joke until it happened. What a stressful time it has been. The moving scrambled my reading and writing rhythm. It was hectic. Anyway, Jenny and I are beginning to have a semblance of normalcy in our new home. With this “normalcy”, I thought I should sign off 2019 with a list of literary works I’ve enjoyed reading.

So, here we go

Making Sense of God – Tim Keller

The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness – Tim Keller

Prodigal God – Tim Keller (bought this title three years ago. Promised myself to read it so often every year. This was Jenny’s gift this year. Half read at the side of the bed 😡😂)

Islam – A Short Guide to the Faith – Roger Allen and Shawkat M. Toorawa (editors)

The Gospel in a Pluralist Society – Lesslie Newbigin

The Rage Against God – Peter Hitchens

The Search for God and Guinness  – Stephen Mansfield

Why People Don’t Believe – Confronting Seven Challenges to Christian Faith – Paul Chamberlain

I’d Rather Be Reading – Anne Bogel

The Bruised Reed – Richard Sibbes

From Weakness to Strength – Scott Sauls

The Violent Bear it Away – Flannery O’Connor

Who made God? – Ravi Zacharias and Norman Geisler

Grace in Practice – Paul F.M Zahl

Another Country – Everyday Social Restitution – Sharlene Swartz

Always Another Country – Sisonke Msimang

Too much to read and not enough time. Time flies past.

Hopefully, I get to read more in 2020.

All the best for your New Year. More grace to you.

That’s what grace looks like

  1. Great titles. Ravi is the only one I know on the list. Moving is not an easy task. I was wondering what happened to your blog earlier this week. Happy New Year!🥳💥💥
