Books Read in 2015

I know this is super late! Every year, right at the beginning of the year I post a list of all the books I read that year. However the end of last year was a bit crazy. I was gone in Africa for half of January, then I jumped right into a theological method seminar which kept me really busy, then the baby came! All that to say here are the books I read in 2015, my list of best books of 2015 will be posted soon!
