Here are the books I’ve read since January of 2015 with my rating for them (5 being the best) along with a brief review. Any book without a number rating has been given to me by the author or publisher. In addition to this list you might also check out my reading lists from previous years as well as my recommendations on how to become a better reader.

  1. On Immunity by Eula Biss (3.5). At its base level it’s a book about our fear of vaccines. Why I enjoyed it is because it looks deeper at the moral sense we have of contamination and how something as simple as vaccines shows us the way we value and treat those around us.
  2. How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia (4). A totally deceptive title as this is a fictional story. The story itself is actually really good and shows the emptiness of a life searching for wealth alone.
  3. A Living Alternative by various authors (4). This is a collection of essays and as such, some are more on point than others. Overall, it provides a great look at Anabaptist theology and raises the questions that need to be asked in our post-Christendom country today.
  4. Lynchpin by Seth Godin (4.5). Seth shines in this one. Not only does he point out how you need to work differently for the future (be a lynchpin instead of a cog), but he also motivates you to do it. Caused me to see some things in my own life differently.
