June 1st. For many people, the unofficial start of summer. For the past few years, Dr. Albert Mohler has been publishing a list of recommended books to read each summer. Today he released this summer’s list on his blog. All ten recommendations are non-fiction history, with the vast majority of that history covering the mid-1800s through the mid-1900s. Not exactly a variety of genres, but Mohler offers no apologies, writing, “Those looking for books on birds and romance should consult some other list.” But if you are into history, you might want to consider these works.
