Here's what I've picked for Spring 2017....
Life Together, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
It's been a long time since I've read Bonhoeffer's thoughts on the Christian life in his own words. Thanks to the gift of a friend, I've had Life Together waiting patiently for me, and since it's such a small book, and I'm currently studying friendship and community, I think it would be a very valuable selection for the Spring season.
Story Trumps Structure, by Steven James
I started it shortly after Christmas, and it got delayed in a threatening TBR stack. Since I think it's a fairly quick read, I want to finish it up during the spring season and report in my findings.
Reformation Heroes, by Joel Beeke
This will be my first book to celebrate the Reformation 500th anniversary! An excellent, beautifully formatted book written by Joel Beeke, it gives informative snapshot biographies of many key people in the Reformation era. If you only read one book about the Reformation this year, let this be the book.
The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett
This is one of the selections I'm most keenly excited about for my children's classics re-reading in 2017. I've been wanting to evaluate The Secret Garden and Burnett's religious beliefs in it for some time, ever since I heard that it contained non-Christian ideology. While I'm nervous about delving into it, I do want to be able to evaluate it for myself.
Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame
An absolutely charming story, Wind in the Willows feels like a perfect spring tale. I've been waiting years to read it until I could own an edition with Kenneth Grahame illustrations. I'm so excited to get back to the friendships of Ratty and Mole and Toad and all the rest of the dear animals.
The Black Stallion, by Walter Farley
My childhood fandom, before Kidnapped, before Sherlock Holmes--I adored Alec and the Black and their adventures together. I absolutely cannot wait to rediscover them in a re-read.
How about you? What's on your current TBR stack? I'd love to know!
