2009 Englewood Honor Books

2009 in Review:
Englewood Honor Books
The Best Books of the Year
for the Life of the Church

2009 has been a good year here at the Englewood Review, and as the year draws to a close, it is fitting that we thank God for all those who partnered with us this year: for all the authors who keep writing excellent works and challenging us all, for all the publishers that have worked with us, for all the reviewers who have worked diligently to read, reflect upon and review the books we assign, but most of all for our readers, who keep reading and responding with words of encouragement and support. We have read (or excerpted) almost 250 books this year, most of which have been very good – we try not to waste our time or anyone else’s with bad or even mediocre books – but we offer to you here the best of the best, our honor books for 2009.

It is important to emphasize that 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 of the Church” – i.e., books that energize us to be the 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!).

"This book will inspire, motivate and challenge anyone who cares a whit about the written word, the world of ideas, the shape of our communities
and the life of the church."
