Favorite Books of 2018

This is now the fourth year that I have kept track of my favorite books of the past year. This list is merely based on personal enjoyment, and all of them I have read for the first time this year. According to Goodreads, I read 100 books this year—but that number is a little deceiving given a number of booklets and smaller works included.

As always, this is somewhat in order, but I didn’t agonize over it. You can see last year’s list here, 2016, and 2015.


Calvin’s Company of Pastors by Scott M. Manetsch


Surprised by Joy by C.S. Lewis


Man of the House by C.R. Wiley


The Discarded Image by C.S. Lewis


The Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis


The Martyrdom of Polycarp 


Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

Why Children Matter by Douglas Wilson

(I also enjoyed Future Men and Standing on the Promises this year by Pastor Doug)



Mere Fundamentalism by Douglas Wilson


The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church, Vol. 1, The Biblical Period by Hughes Oliphant Old
