My God and I by Lewis B. Smedes
Justin’s first review of the year
really liked it
Short but wonderful memoir by a theologian who (among other things) briefly attended Moody Bible Institute, then Calvin College, then studied in Amsterdam with Berkouwer, and who fills the book with personal anecdotes of interactions with Barth, Van Til, JND Kelly, and C.S. Lewis at Oxford, before being a much loved professor and ethicist at Fuller for many years.

Justin’s last review of the year
really liked it
I've seen the movie a dozen times, but had never read the original. We listened to it on our vacation (performed admirably by Anne Hathaway), and my kids were enthralled. I am happy that it was not as deconstructive of the fairy tale genre as the movie adaptation. Even if the wizard was a humbug, it was not "all a dream" - the world is truly full of magic, even if the magic seems to have drained out where we live.
