    Lost to the West: The Forgotten Byzantine Empire That Rescued Western Civilization by Lars Brownworth - an entertaining read, but I'm wary of how closely he sticks to the facts; likening Monophysites to the opposite error of Arians is not especially accurate.

    One or other of the Wheel of Time books, I'm listening to them one after the other in audiobook form so I don't actually know which one I'm on. When one ends, the next automatically starts.

    Religion and Ritual in Ancient Egypt by Emily Teeter
    Egyptian Mythology: A Guide to the Gods, Goddesses, and Traditions of Ancient Egypt by Geraldine Pinch
    Why Are There Differences in the Gospels? by Mike Licona

    I don't know if it counts as "reading", but I am listening to Dr. Heiser's podcast about the Bible. I'm on episode 104 out of 160.

    Hunters of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. It's pretty good so far.

    Abaddon's Gate by James S.A. Corey - third book in the Expanse series. Audiobook. I started listening to the series all over again when the Sci-Fi channel started the series The Expanse. The TV series follows the main plot pretty closely but has a lot of "shortcuts" - they have created a few extra characters here and there to move the plot along faster, or changed a few things to make things clearer quicker than in the book. Basically the first two seasons covered the first book and part of the second. There are currently 6 books and two more in the works:

    1 Leviathan Wakes
    2 Caliban's War
    5 Nemesis Games
    6 Babylon's Ashes

    upcoming:
    7. Persepolis Rising 2017
    8. Unknown forthcoming 2018
    9. Unknown 2019

    Also fun fact: The Expanse apparently take place in the same universe as "The Martian" - a ship called the "Mark Watney" out of Mars is mentioned in Babylon's Ashes. (Mark Watney was the guy stranded on Mars in the movie/book The Martian)
