In a recent post, I reiterated the classic trope that those who wish to lead should also be those willing to engage their minds in serious thinking.
Every year, I keep a list of the books I read in order to look back and see the things with which I have engaged personally, spiritually, professionally, and intellectually over the duration of the year. It is interesting to read back through this list and remember what I was wrestling with as I read a particular book at a particular time.
Here, then, is the list of what I read in 2015. You will see that it is an eclectic blend of academic, theological, literary, philosophical, historical, and personal. Overall, it gives you a peek behind the veil to see what helped influence my thinking during 2015.
You can also look back at lists from previous years here:
**And I am always up for a good recommendation! If there is something that struck a chord, opened a vein, or deeply influenced your thinking in 2015, please let me know. You can leave your recommendations in the Comments section below.
