I had heard some buzz about the book Mission at Nuremberg, which WORLD voted as "2014 Book of the Year," so now it's definitely on my list. It's the story of the U.S. chaplain assigned to the spiritual care of the Nazi officials who were condemned to death after the war trials. Sounds amazing.
Some of the 140 book recommendations were brand new, but many were of books written in the last few years. Here are the ones that grabbed my interest:
The Great War by Peter Hart - "a 522 page blow-by-blow history of World War One"
The Reason for God by Tim Keller (World's 2008 Book of the Year)
The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert by Butterfield
Booked by Karen Prior (She wrote this to show "how reading Great Books drew her back to God.")
Faith and Reason by Swinburne (a solid, thorough introduction to philosophy)The Great Books Reader by Reynolds
(These last two were surprisingly pricey, even for Kindle.)
Finally, author Larry Woiwode highly recommends Peavear & Volokhonsky's translation of War and Peace as the best version of "the best fiction novel."
Oh yes, and one more perk. My brother's book, Coming to Grips with Genesis, was mentioned on page 50!
Have you read any of these books? Any thoughts?
