Ok, so we've all seen the threads trying to identify the top ten books of all time. Great idea, but we all love books way to much to choose a measly ten as the best books ever. So I thought we might try something new and list the top 5 or 10 books that we've read this year. Here is my top 5 for 2008:

1. Life and Campaigns of Lieutenant General Thomas J. Stonewall Jackson; by: R.L. Dabney

2. Give Praise To God: A Vision for Reforming Worship; by: Ryken, Thomas, Duncan

3. Letter From A Christian Citizen; by: Douglas Wilson

4. Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low expectations; by: Alex & Brett Harris

5. Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling; by: Andy Crouch


Your turn. :D

Is that your Calvinus Beer? Where did you find it?

No, I'm afraid the beer isn't mine. I just heard about it and found the picture online. I thought it would be a fitting profile pic for the PB. It's a special kind of beer that can only be purchased in Geneva. I have no idea how it tastes but if it's got Calvin on the front it has to be good right? :cheers2:
