Writer, former newspaper columnist, currently work with a non-profit I helped set up, and spend a lot of my time speaking in ordinary settings like universities about issues of spirituality, culture and religion. Studied at Wheaton College, Cardiff University and Oxford University. Three lovely kids distracting me from finishing more books.

Five of the best books I read in 2017

This year I read less books than I have in two decades. But the ones I did read were almost all excellent. Maybe, as you get older, your ability to pick a good book increases?  Here are five of the best I read in 2017, complete with juicy quotes from each one:

“Apologetics shouldn't be a prelude to communicating about Jesus. He is our strongest argument.”
Luke Cawley, The Myth of the Non-Christian: Engaging Atheists, Nominal Christians and the Spiritual But Not Religious

“[A]lmost every book or seminar I have ever encountered on the topic of apologetics... seem[s] to assume that a good argument and a humble demeanor are all that one needs in order to be an effective apologist. Where and how we engage people—the community setting, the geographical location, the music, whether there is food on the table— rarely gets much attention. This needs to change… We must not reduce our interactions with people, even very smart ones, purely to a series of arguments about the basics of Christianity. We will also need to discover ways in which we… can enable Jesus’ reality to take firm shape before others’ eyes.”
