Books that I read in 2005

  1. The Mind Map Book by Tony & Barry Buzan January 2005 ISBN 0-563-48701-1
  2. Raising Boys (2nd Edition) by Steve Biddulph February 2005 ISBN 1-876451-50-5

  4. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling February 2005 ISBN 0-7475-3849-2
  5. Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis March 2005 ISBN 0-330-02172-9
  6. Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff at Work by Richard Carlson April 2005 ISBN 1-86325-184-7. Rather light and fluffy, mildly encouraging but really just common sense and nothing especially enlightening.
  7. Peacetime by Robert Edric April 2005 ISBN 0385-602979
  8. God’s Books, Genetics & Genesis by Graeme Finlay April 2005 ISBN-0-476-00651-1
  9. The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis April 2005 ISBN 0-00-624567-6
  10. Evolution From Creation to New Creation by Ted Peters and Martinez Hewlet May 2005 ISBN 0-687-02374-2. A very interesting and balanced discussion of the various viewpoints and what I consider to be a useful and probably fairly correct theory of how evolution and Christian theology can be reconciled
  11. The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling (illustrated by Nicola Bayley 2005) June 2005 ISBN 0-7445-8643-7
  12. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling June 2005 ISBN 0-7475-5099-9
  13. Harry Potter and the Order of The Pheonix by J.K. Rowling July 2005 ISBN 0-7475-5100-6
  14. Habitat of Grace (Biology, Christianity and the global environmental crisis) by Carolyn M. King July 2005 ISBN 0-9586-3998-1. I did not find this an easy book to read, partly due to writing style, but mostly because it challenged some very deeply held ideas and did not give much in the way of useful substitutes for all the Christian beliefs that it tried to demolish. From reading this book I end up wondering if the author would in fact be a Christian if that means believing in an historical Christ who was crucified and raised from the dead in bodily form. Some interesting ideas in this book, but really it has done absolutely nothing for my own faith.
