#5: The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God by D.A. Carson (52 Books / 52 Weeks)

This year, I’ve set a goal to read 52 books in 52 weeks. You can see my list and track my progress here. If you’re interested in taking the challenge yourself and joining a group of people with the same commitment, please request to join our Facebook group. The group will remain open to new members through February, but the later you join, the more catching up you will have to do. In addition to tracking what I’ve read in my original list, one way I intend to keep current with this goal is write a short article about each book as I finish them.

My Reading List for 2012: 52 Weeks, 52 Books

I decided this year that I had slacked off on my reading. So, this coming year I’m planning on making up for it.  In addition to reading through the Bible once or twice this year (I haven’t decided yet), my plan is tackle at least one book per week for a total of 52 books this year.  The books reflect my interests, and I’ve tried to pick a variety of books.  My main criteria was that I already owned all of the books (except for one which I couldn’t resist adding to the list).  I figured I better work my way through the books I have before I start buying more.  I have grouped the books by category.  I used amazon links in case you want more information about the book, but I couldn’t seem to get rid of that pesky “Buy from Amazon.com” badge.  If books don’t load, just press the reload button on your computer (F5).  I had some problems with it.  So, what do you think of this collection.  What would you add?  Have you read any of these and have some comments or insights?  Please leave them below.

Books About Divorce

My passion and my ministry these days focus on helping children of divorce.  As such, I’ve accumulated a stock pile of books about children of divorce and about helping children of divorce.  I intend to get through most of them this year.  They make up about one-third of the list.  If I hadn’t been intentional about picking other types of books, that might have been more like one-half or two-thirds.
