Many other books could be on this list, and I did not include the dead authors who pushed and prodded in various ways (Tolkien, Chesterton, Augustine, even Marx).
In past years I have recommended a long list of my best reads for the year. This year, I decided to recommend only four books. There are many others I could recommend, but I thought it best to reduce my favorite reads to four so as not overwhelm you with possibilities for Christmas gifts!
Churchill and Orwell: The Fight for Freedom
We the Fallen People: The Founders and the Future of American Democracy
My interview is here:
Why We are Restless: On the Modern Quest for Contentment
My interview with the authors can be found here:
Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers
Wonderfully written, beautifully illustrated, and balanced in the best sense of that word. And no, the author does not present a soft and squishy God!
