Top50-2016

Here are the top 50 books that are slated for release in 2016 that we think will be beneficial for Christians.  Our focus here at the ERB is the life, health and flourishing of God’s people, and specifically we focus on the themes of Community, Mission, Imagination and Reconciliation.

Also note that there are many more books here from the first half of the year than from the second half, as many publishers have not released their full summer and fall catalogs yet.

We’ve broken this list up into the Top 10 books and the remaining 40, which are sorted into five categories: Christian, Non-Fiction, Poetry and Fiction…

What books are you most looking forward to in 2016?

2015

 

I’m in the process of compiling a list of my most anticipated books for 2015. 

I’d love to do a little crowdsourcing here, as there are so many new books out there, that there’s no way I can keep up with all of them.

Here are a few books that might appear on my list:

  • Only One World, a new collection of essays by Wendell Berry
  • Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans
  • This Is My Body by Ragan Sutterfield

What books are you most looking forward to in the New Year? 

If you are an author, let me know me if you have a new book coming out next year.

If you work for a publisher, let me know a couple of your books that I should especially be watching for…

Use the comments below to let me know what I should watch for…

*** Watch for my list sometime before the end of the year!

 

 

In addition to the books reviewed above (Lee Camp’s WHO IS MY ENEMY? and Miroslav Volf’s ALLAH), here are a few books that would be useful in helping churches to reflect on what Christian faithfulness looks like in a post-9/11 world).

(Your purchase of any of these books helps to support the work of the ERB!  Thanks…)
