Each book review points out positives and negatives. As a principle, we try to understand an author’s life and see their writing through the lens of their life.

Occasionally I review works of fiction by Christian authors, such as the Inklings. These reviews will never include spoilers.

If a title does not have a link, it means that the review is scheduled and upcoming.
