2007 Book List

I set a goal to read 50 books in 2007. I only read 41, but I'm hoping that writing the Chase the Lion curriculum (and thereby reading In a Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day at least half a dozen times) and New Testament book introductions for an upcoming Thomas Nelson project count for something!

Anyway, here is a complete list of what I read with a short description of why I read it and links to any online reviews that I might have written.
  • Humility: The Journey Toward Holiness (Andrew Murray; personal development)- REVIEW
