this week: 13 favorite non-fiction books. this will be easier for some of us than others.
1. Kevin Murphy, A Year at the Movies (this is a great book for all the movie geeks among us–written by one of the guys who did Mystery Science Theater 3000)
2. Lauren Winner, Girl Meets God.
3. C.S. Lewis, Surprised by Joy.
4. Augustine, Confessions.
5. Donald Miller, Prayer and the Art of Volkswagen Maintenance (are you noticing a trend? I know I sure am).
6. St. Athanasius, On the Incarnation (I was expecting this to be a lot drier than it actually is–not only is it a great apologetic work, it also makes very clear Athanasius’ love for God).
7. Christopher Vogler, The Writer’s Journey.
8. Annie Dillard, Pilgrim At Tinker Creek (although yes, I know, the bit about the cat isn’t true).
9. Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own (why I am a Wollstonecraftian feminist).
10. Jean Zimmerman, Made From Scratch (why I don’t go any farther than that).
11. John Piper et al., Sex and the Supremacy of God (actually quite chaste, which it would have to be with a title like that).
12. Philip Yancey, What’s So Amazing About Grace?
13. Lauren Winner, Mudhouse Sabbath (I know she’s on here twice, but I really like her books).
