The 50 Best Books of 2015 (So Far)

books

2015 is 60% over, and that means all the books for the year have either been released or announced. In the summer months I begin to compile a rough list of about 50 of the potentially best Christian (non-fiction) books of the year into a list that I will use to pick my top choices in November.

[Update: The list has nearly topped 70 titles — thanks for the wonderful suggestions.]

Here’s my list:

Of course I need your help on this community project of trying to pull in all the contenders. Tweet me or comment here: What books from 2015 have I missed?

  1. Tony,

    I JUST finished reading page 34-35 of your book LIT!, which I bought a few days ago. Setting aside all the other things i would love to say to you and thank you for, I wanted to say thank you for this. As I finished reading about the new sight you were given (under your subhead “My Unveiling”), and read a page of Christ’s glories, my spirit soared in worship.
    Then my phone pings that I have a new email from your blog, specifically about books!
    You may not read this or have time to respond, but I wanted to say “thank you”, and praise God for our faithful telling of how your hearts eyes were unveiled.
    Sincerely,

    Caleb Larson

  2. Caleb thank you for the incredible encouragement, I really appreciated it, especially as I should be working on my next book, but this morning I decided to procrastinate by talking about books written by others (haha!). Your words are an encouragement and an admonishment that I need to get back to work. Thank you! Tony

  3. Wonderful book. There’s some highpoints, especially when he gets into Augustine’s conversion and the role of the affections. But a fundamental lack of redemption at the center of moral character would make me hesitate in calling it a Christian book, at least in how I would conceive of it.

  4. Thanks for the writing Lit!. A great help to me and just the kind of thing I was looking for.

    How about including

    “Side by Side: Walking With Others in Wisdom and Love” by Edward T. Welch
    “Openness Unhindered: Further Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert on Sexual Identity and Union with Christ?” by Rosaria Butterfield
