2009 brought some fascinating books across my nightstand. Here is a list of some of my favorites from 2009…
13 Days to Glory by Lon Tink
This book gives you a quick look into the perilous struggles and difficult decisions each person made at the Alamo.
Flyboys by James Bradley
This book tells the story of the terrible conditions Navy and Marine Aviators faced at Chici Jima during the Second World War.
God is Back by John Micklethwait and Adrian Woolridge
This book reflects on the popularity of God among global leadership. They explain the awkwardness of this since the bulk of the 20th century honed humanism.
The Emancipation of Robert Sadler by Robert Sadler with Marie Chapian
This book will moisten your eyes as you read of the slavery taking place in the early 20th century in South Carolina. This book caught my attention dramatically due to Robert Sadler escaping from slavery and eventually finding a job for a short stint at Reynolds Tobacco Company in Winston Salem, NC.
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
This book meets all of its hype and more. Brown has an amazing ability with words and works through plots effortlessly.
The Trellis and the Vine by Colin Marshall and Tony Payne
Wow! A must read for every Christian. If you want to understand what the bride of Christ is supposed to be doing, because of what the groom accomplished for us this is it.
Christless Christianity by Michael Horton
Michael Horton grasps theology and culture exceptionally well. Here he explains the depravity of man magnifying itself from both a liberal and conservative perspective. Excellent read!
I”ve started 2010 off with an exceptional book so far by Simon Sebag Montefiore, Young Stalin.
