Here at Servants of Grace we read a lot of books. So many books that we regularly review over two hundred titles a year. You might be thinking, “That’s a crazy number of books”, and you’re right it is. As I was thinking about this towards the end of 2014, and knowing that our audience also loves to read, I thought it would be neat to regularly feature books we’re excited about. Sometimes this list will be quite long and at other times quite small. Our aim as it pertains to book reviews is to keep you up to date with the latest and greatest in Christian publishing. We trust that you find our reviews helpful in making our purchasing decisions. The majority of these books in the list that follows below haven’t been released yet but some have already been released. Where the books have more information I’ve included links so you can check them out. Where there wasn’t any information I didn’t include any links. With that said here’s a list of books from publishers we regularly read from.
