If you happened to get an Amazon gift card for Christmas this year, then you will be eager to spend your gleanings on books. You may not like E-books (yet), but – for you “penny pinchers” and “bargain chasers” out there, you can purchase more books electronically than you can the old fashioned way for less money. Fact. And, speaking from experience, E-books are much easier to pack & move if the Lord ever leads you to move from your current location.
I love seeing what various people have read throughout the year and what they recommend to other geeks like myself. Below is a list of 10 of my favorites from this year. They are in no particular order. If you want a description (sorry I didn’t include one here), click on the link, scroll down a bit, and read the “Book Description” provided by Amazon.
And, by the way, I do NOT endorse or commend every word on every page of the books listed below. They are 10 of my favorites from the year. I think you will enjoy them and/or learn much from them. Read them with a Holy Spirit infused maturity and a biblically Christian worldview perspective. Deal?
