It's already hard to pick my top ten favorite reads from only half of the year. This doesn't include the books I've re-read by C. S. Lewis which are always at the top of my favorites list:
1. Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible’s View of Women by Sarah Bessey - This was a re-read and I loved it just as much as the first time I read it.
2. Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith by Barbara Brown Taylor - I love everything I have read by Barbara Brown Taylor and I want to re-read all of her books already!
3. Disarming Scripture: Cherry-Picking Liberals, Violence-Loving Conservatives, and Why We All Need to Learn to Read the Bible Like Jesus Did by Derek Flood - I didn't necessarily agree with him on everything, but I still liked this book and plan to re-read it.
4. The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning - This was also a re-read: One I feel the need to re-read about once a year.
5. Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church by Rachel Held Evans - I LOVED this book. I want to re-read it again already! There were so many "me too!" moments. I felt like she wrote it just for me or she was writing part of my story!
6. The Bible Tells Me So: Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It by Peter Enns
7. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Narrated by Wil Wheaton - This was a lot of fun to listen to as an audiobook.
8. Healing the Gospel: A Radical Vision for Grace, Justice, and the Cross by Derek Flood
9. Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church by N.T. Wright - This book changed the way I thought about the nature of heaven. So good.
10. If You Feel Too Much: Thoughts on Things Found and Lost and Hoped For by Jamie Tworkowski
