2015 – What Books are you Most Anticipating?



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:

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…

  1. Michael McVicar (University of North Carolina Press) and Julie Ingersoll (Oxford University Press) are both publishing academic histories of Christian Reconstructionism next year.

  2. 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!!

  3. “Vulnerable Faith” by Jamie Arpin-Ricci

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
