Three Books I Read This Year and Why I Liked Them

1. Roman but Not Catholic: What Remains at Stake 500 Years after the Reformation, by Jerry L. Walls and Kenneth J. Collins
Shows, from an informed Wesleyan perspective, why the Roman church is not truly catholic–by its own choice. An irenic but pointed critique. Highly recommended.

2. The Story of Reality: How the World Began, How It Ends, and Everything Important that Happens in Between, by Gregory Koukl
Presents Christianity engagingly as a story that explains why we are here, what went wrong, and how everything will be made right. Ideal for seekers and skeptics.

3. The Mother Hunt (Nero Wolfe #38), by Rex Stout
Because who doesn’t like a good, classic detective mystery?
