2020 Reading List

In the midst of all the craziness and confusion that was 2020, I believe I read more books than any other year in my life. While I read more pages per year during my time in seminary, most of those books were 300+ pages each (some over 1000 pages), so the actual count of books those years was lower.

In no particular order, here goes.

I read the whole Bible in about 100 days using the YouVersion Bible app's 90-day reading plan

Jesus the Great Philosopher: Rediscovering the Wisdom Needed for the Good Life by Jonathan Pennington (I read all but the final chapter in 2020. I was going out of town for a few days, and rather than take a book I knew I would finish the first day, I took a new one with me, and finished this book the first day back home in 2021.)


And I've probably missed a book or two, not to mention the journal articles and blog articles I have also digested.
