Xmas Book Wish List

Every year around this time I’m asked to recommend book titles of this year’s guests as gift items. The following recommend some of my top picks, but the omission of a title does not mean I didn’t like the book (maybe that in my advancing years I can’t actually remember all of them!)

ALSO, since my concern is to listen to culture as well as faith and since I care about the quality of writing, my list tends towards NYT list over CBA (Christian Booksellers) lists.
