10 Book Recommendations from 2017

10 Book Recommendations 2017I have made it my goal in 2018 to read at least one book each week! Last year I didn’t quite make it–I only read 28. Of course, some of that can be accounted for because I was reading commentaries and other material that I did not include in the list below for my Doctoral degree. Also, I did not keep a very good record of the books I read–I will do better this year!

From the list that I did keep, I wanted to share with you my top 10 book recommendations based on what I read in 2017. You can see the complete list of all the books I read at the bottom of this post. If you have any questions about any of the books, let me know in the comments below!
