In case you haven’t been paying attention, I’ve done quite a bit of reading this past year.
Just how much, you might ask.
Well, unlike last year, I didn’t put together a comprehensive list.
I did however, pick my 12 favorite reads. I’ve seen some other lists floating around online (like here, here, and here), but my list was based on what I read this year (whether or not it came out this year). For the most part they were published this year or last.
I excluded larger books (like An Old Testament Theology and Kingdom Through Covenant) since they are reference works I’ll go back to again whether or not I really enjoyed reading them. Instead, I picked 12 books that I really enjoyed reading (and weren’t just good) and that I might read again sooner rather than later.
You can see them in the picture above, but here’s the list (linking to a review where applicable):
- Hearing The Old Testament
- Paul and Union With Christ: An Exegetical and Theological Study
- A Son to Me: An Exposition of 1-2 Samuel
- Deep Exegesis: The Mystery of Reading Scripture
- Dangerous Calling
- Excellence: The Character of God and the Pursuit of Scholarly Virtue
- All Roads Lead To The Text
- Delighting In The Trinity
- Psalms as Torah
- Popologetics: Pop Culture in Christian Perspective
- Fools Rush In Where Monkeys Fear To Tread
- RetroChristianity: Reclaiming the Forgotten Faith
Some notable mentions are books I’m really enjoying but might not finish by the end of the year:
- The Quest For The Trinity
- God’s Saving Grace: A Pauline Theology
- Reading The Gospels Wisely: A Narrative and Theological Introduction
- Sojourners and Strangers: The Doctrine of The Church
What about you?
