Some of the best books I have enjoyed this year:
Life Together, Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A great summary of what it means to live the Christian life and be part of God’s people.
John Calvin, Commentary on 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus: Calvin is wonderful for learning what it means to be a Christian pastor.
Paradise Lost, John Milton: Wonderful stuff, and the preface by CS Lewis is gold.
The Pastor as Scholar & The Scholar as Pastor – Reflections on Life and Ministry, Piper and Carson: Excellent hearty reflections on godliness and leadership, especially Piper.
The Peacemaker – A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict, Ken Sande: Best book on forgiveness I have read, other than the Bible.
The Narnian, Alan Jacobs: Terrific unpacking of the thought of CS Lewis and why he is so enduring.
