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!

Reading for the Common Good
From ERB Editor Christopher Smith
"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."

Michael McVicar (University of North Carolina Press) and Julie Ingersoll (Oxford University Press) are both publishing academic histories of Christian Reconstructionism next year.
Purity, Jonathan Franzen – ok may be not considering secular books here ?
I don’t make the distinction between secular and sacred books. So yes, definitely looking forward to Franzen’s book!!
“Vulnerable Faith” by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
This may sound strange, but I don’t know how to find out about upcoming books. But if Ernest Gaines were to finish his novel long in progress, I would be a very happy individual.
Jack, as best I can tell from Amazon, Gaines’s novel will not be out in the next 6 months anyway. 🙁
I’m really looking forward to this one put out by IVP: http://www.amazon.com/Eternal-Living-Reflections-Willards-Formation/dp/0830835954/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1417060243&sr=1-1
John Thompson has a book coming out on Zondervan in April titled Jesus, Bread and Chocolate: Crafting a Handmade Faith in a Mass Market World that I think you’re going to enjoy.
Definitely intrigued, I’ve been reading JJT’s work for over 20 years now…
Looking forward to reading ”The Fishermen” by Chigozie Obioma. http://www.amazon.com/Fishermen-Novel-Chigozie-Obioma/dp/0316338370/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1407893066&sr=1-1&keywords=The+Fishermen+by+Chigozie+@ChigozieObioma
