Englewood Honor Books – Best Books of 2015

December 18, 2015

 

Here is our list of 2015′s Englewood Honor Books, the 2Best Books of the year for the life and flourishing of the Church.

Our criterion both for selecting books to review and for honoring the year’s best books is to choose books that are “for the life and flourishing of the Church” – i.e., books that energize us to be the local community of God’s people that God has called us to be and that nurture our mission of following in the way of God’s reconciliation of all things (in all its broadness!).

“Searching for Sunday is a love song of sorts for the church. Evans love for the church is fully cognizant of the warts and brokenness of the church, and is perhaps best
captured in her eloquent line: ‘All we have is this church – this lousy screwed-up, glorious church – which by God’s grace is enough.’”- C. Christopher Smith
