Top 50 Books For Christian Readers to Watch for in 2015

Top 50 Books

Here are 50 books that are slated for release in 2015 and that we think will be beneficial for Christians.  Our focus is the life, health and flourishing of God’s people and we especially 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 four categories: Christian, Non-Fiction, Poetry and Fiction…

What books are you most looking forward to in 2015?

    Two books per page?

    I understand that you’re trying to be attractive to advertisers, but I’m leaving after page two and I probably won’t return. Something to think about.

  • Melissa B

    Yeah…I agree with commenter Nelle. I was interested in this list, but I’m not going to click through all those pages. Put them on one page, or two at the most, or people will just leave your site, like I’m going to do now.

  • Bill Morgan

    wow, what picky readers! I liked your layout.

  • Ken

    Thanks Chris, certainly a comprehensive listing!

  • Jerry Dodson

    I only scrolled through page six: like Nelle said, this was a most unfriendly format. And the titles were not that impressive either. Rachel Held Evans?

  • scotmcknight

    Chris, what a lot of reading we already know about!

  • This is truly a banner year! Can’t wait to read (and review) some of these.
    Rachel Held Evans’ book is next on my stack.
    Thank you for this. It’s wonderful (and cause for anticipation).

  • Oh, me, too! (Sorry, shameless self-promotion, Chris… but I have been in your minivan. *grins*)

    Living in a nation with erratic internet…. it’s way too difficult to wait for so many pages to load. Pity. It sounded interesting.
