Best Books of 2016 (The Contenders)


It’s time to finalize my preliminary list of books to consider for best of 2016 (xian, mostly evangelical, nf, in english). Once again, this is going to be a tough decision. The list, as I have it so far, is below. So what books have I missed? (* = newly added suggestion.)

  1. Tim Keller’s book on Prayer? (“Prayer – Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God”)

  2. Agreed with The Vine Project. A book worth its weight in gold. Also, I really enjoyed Union with Christ by Wilbourne.

    Thanks for this list, Tony. I always look forward to them.

  3. Because evangelical Christians are eventually going to have to face the tidal wave of evidence (genetic and otherwise) for biological evolution, at least one of the following should be on the 2016 list:

    Luke J. Janssen, “Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: Genesis and Human Origins”

    Carl W. Treleaven, “The Unexpected Perspective: The Implications of Darwin and the Big Bang for Christians . . . and Everyone Else”

    Joel Edmund Anderson, “The Heresy of Ham: What Every Evangelical Needs to Know About the Creation-Evolution Controversy”

    Katheryn Applegate & J. B. Stump (Eds.), “How I Changed my Mind about Evolution: Evangelicals Reflect on Faith and Science”
