January 2017 Reading Challenge Update

This year I’m taking part in a reading challenge, with the goal of reading 100 books.  I wasn’t too sure if this goal was attainable when I wrote my introduction to my reading challenge post, and I’m still not certain, but I’m feeling much more confident now.  January was a great start! I completed 7 books, which is exactly where I am supposed to be.

  1. Making Sense of God: An Invitation to the Skeptic (Timothy Keller)
  2. A Theology of Biblical Counseling (Heath Lambert)
  3. Visual Theology (Tim Challies)
  4. Crossing Cultures in Scripture (Marvin Newell)
  5. Evangelism: How the Whole Church Speaks of Jesus (Mack Stiles)
  6. United (Trillia Newbell)
  7. Engaging with Jewish People (Randy Newman)

Most of my reading took place at the beginning of the month, as I returned home from my winter trips and had a couple weeks of transition time between ending my job and returning to school.  January has been a month of tying up loose ends, finishing books I started in 2016 but never got around to finishing.  I also managed to get a few new books started, and read two books I picked up at Cross Conference.  On top of the seven books listed here that I completed, I have over fifteen in-progress on my goodreads so if you want to stay up to date with what I’m reading, that’s the place to be.

In January I also launched my first-ever giveaway, for Engaging with Jewish People If you have not yet had the chance to enter, you have until the end of the day on February 1st, 2017 to do so!  I recommend checking it out!

As always, I would love to hear what you’re reading!  I love seeing what books people are loving, as it helps me choose what to add to my personal collection.  Feel free to drop me a tweet (@sydney_ann__) with any great book suggestions!
