2018: The year in books


As I look back on 2018, it has been a year filled with mind-expanding books. The volume of books available is incredible and I appreciate when others help me cull to those books that I might find valuable. As such, this is my attempt to contribute to that effort. 

For those of you that follow me on Twitter (dubious decision making on your part), I began experimenting with creating individual “book threads” that contain excerpts of the books and historical information related to the topic. The threads are included below.

Top three books

  1. God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God by John C. Lennox
  2. Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther by Roland H. Bainton
  3. Indianapolis: The True Story of the Worst Sea Disaster in U.S. Naval History and the Fifty-Year Fight to Exonerate an Innocent Man by @TheLynnVincent  and @SurfinSara. My reading notes:
