I mainly review sermons, theology, creative essays, biographies, and classic Christian living books. Occasionally I review works of fiction by Christian authors, such as the Inklings. These reviews will never include spoilers.
As a principle, I try to understand an author’s life and see their writing through the lens of their life.
Curious about a book that’s not in this list? You are welcome to comment at the bottom and submit a request for a book review.
