Top 15 Books of 2012

It’s that time of year again for top books of the year. Rather than give a list from 1-15 (I have 15 books on this list), I decided just to give you the fifteen books that I most benefited from reading this year. I encourage all of you to read these books in the next year (or two years as some as these are very long). The Hole in our holiness by Kevin DeYoung (You can read my review here: http://servantsofgrace.org/2012/08/06/book-review-the-hole-in-our-holiness-filling-the-gap-between-gospel-passion-and-the-pursuit-of-godliness/) Finish the mission by Dr. John Piper and David Mathis (You can read my review here: http://servantsofgrace.org/2012/11/06/book-review-finish-the-mission-bringing-the-gospel-to-the-unreached-and-unengaged/), Shame interrupted by Dr. Ed Welch (my review of this book is forthcoming in the next few weeks) Popologetics by Dr. Ted Turnau (You can read my review of this book here: (http://servantsofgrace.org/2012/10/26/book-review-popologetics/ The conviction to lead  by Dr. Albert Mohler (my review is forthcoming in the next few months) A Puritan Theology by Drs.

Top Books for 2011

Another year is coming to a close, which means book lists are slowly but surely coming out.  One of our contributors Aaron Armstrong posted his top books for 2011 list on Wed. You can access his top books for 2011 here: http://www.bloggingtheologically.com/2011/12/14/my-favorite-books-of-2011/ This year I read well over a hundred books between reading for seminary, publishers, personal reading, and research papers. Truthfully I stop keeping track after I read one hundred books, which was around September of this year. I have always enjoyed reading since I was a child but most of my reading these days is academic in nature. My wife and I joke that my “hobby” of reading has become an addiction, and I think she may be onto something as the pile of books in my office continues to grow so much that I have to put more and more of my books from my office in the garage where I store books I don’t read very often in large covered storage tubs. Here’s my “top eleven” list of books I read in 2011. At the bottom of this post, I have also included a list of  “honorable mention” books I think deserve to be read by every Christian. #11- Marriage Matters: Extraordinary Change Through Ordinary Moments (New Growth Press, 2010) by Dr. Winston Smith. Many marriage books major on providing self-help advice but do not explain how the...
