I know it sounds dramatic, but it’s true. Each of the ten books I’ve outlined below (actually twelve), in one way or another, have changed the course of my life. They have caused a shift in what and how I believe, live in and see the world. There are, of course, many other books I could include here. However, these top ten books were the cause behind significant turning points in my theological life. And for this reason, they made the list.
The fall season is my favorite time of year, and always has been. Even as a child and teenager growing up in Newfoundland, I fondly remember the beautiful colors of the season, spending time in the country with my dad, picking berries, harvesting the crops at the Clarke family farm, and getting up early in the morning to go hunting (I’m not much of a hunter any more). Breathing in the cool, fresh and crisp morning air had a way of giving me life and inspired me to go outside, get involved, begin new things, and embrace the season.
