Best of 2012

A few "Best Of" choices from 2012:


  • A Praying Life by Paul Miller.  This book is utterly unique among books I have read on prayer and has probably impacted me the most.
  • When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead.  Best Newbery we read this year
  • Josh Garrels.  I started listening to this guy in January, and my only regret is not posting a blog sooner to tell everyone to download his record Love & War & The Sea In Between while it was still free.  He is both musically and lyrically the most interesting new Christian artist I have heard in several years.
  • Light for the Lost Boy by Andrew Peterson.  No surprise there, but still excellent.
  • The Long Surrender by Over The Rhine, my favorite song still being "Only God Can Save Us Now".
  • Babel by Mumford & Sons
  • Les Mis√©rables, my gosh that was great.
