Englewood Honor Books – Best Books of 2014

Here is our list of 2014′s Englewood Honor Books, the 25 Best Books of the year for the life and flourishing of the Church.

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 and flourishing of the Church” – i.e., books that energize us to be the local 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!).

It is my hope that every Bible teacher, every pastor and preacher, and every Christian who longs for a more coherent, meaningful, faithful daily discipleship struggles long and hard with the content of this book. It is that important.  Our visions of the future, and our faithfulness to the Biblical story, matters more than we may know. “ – Byron Borger
