Englewood Honor Books – Best Books of 2015

Here is our list of 2015′s Englewood Honor Books, the 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!).

Between the World and Me has been claimed both the National Book Award and the Publishers Weekly Book of the Year for Non-Fiction, and it deserves every bit of praise that it gets.
“We find Coates’s narrative rife with the spirit of lament, that sort of powerlessness in the face of tragedy, that would turn us—even if it does not turn Coates himself—to beseech the mercy and healing of our Creator God. Meditating on and internalizing Coates’s story will steel our ears against the cries for cheap grace and false hopes.”
– C. Christopher Smith
