Finished books of 2013

Finished books of 2013
This is a list of all the books I’ve read this 2013. Books from school, books from within the Bible, and Books that are pleasure reading. I hope this list encourages anyone and everyone to be avid readers to love God with your minds and to take every thought captive that raises itself against the knowledge of God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

*means the book was required by SWBTS
(#) a number in parenthesis, indicates how many times I’ve read it this year.

    1. Chesterton is very good. Orthodoxy is a sequel to “Heretics” he makes it clear in the opening. But it is very good although sometimes there is the potential to get lost, because he deals with paradoxes. He says a lot of very profound things I have never even thought about. You’ll like it. His work, “The Everlasting Man” is supposedly very good. I haven’t read though and I would really really like too. Thanks for the comment Rick


    2. Orthodoxy is very good. It really makes you think, he deals a lot with paradoxes in Christianity and is quite a wordsmith, you have to be assiduous as you read him, but by the end you may express, “Wow, that was good!” Seriously a phenomenal work. I’m hoping to read sometime soon, “The Everlasting Man”
