Here is our list of 2015′s Englewood Honor Books, the Best 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!).

Best Poetry Book of the Year:

 

Slow Pilgrim: The Collected Poems of Scott Cairns

Paperback: Paraclete Press

Buy now:  [ Amazon ]   


Following his collection Idiot Psalms in 2014, Scott Cairns is the first poet to have won this award in back-to-back years.
“The God who gives life, who is the end and aim of all beauty and good, can be seen poking his wry smile through these pages. This book is a gift, a companion, and a joy. Cairns has managed to bequeath to us a collection of poems so alive with Christian truth, and so unreservedly human, that we can do little else but receive it with gratitude and squeak out a meager ‘thank you.’” – Stephen Lawson
