My 2013 Reading List

Picture credit

I like to read. While the busyness of releasing Resurrection Year, launching a podcast, visiting Ethiopia, going on pilgrimage, doing a speaking tour and more this year means I haven’t gotten to as many books as I would’ve liked, my 2013 reading list hasn’t been bad. Here it is. Not every book has been brilliant (and listing doesn’t mean full endorsement) but there have been some gems. Do let me know your best reads of the year in the comments section too.
