Top 50 Books for Christian Readers to Watch for in 2016!


Here are the top 50 books that are slated for release in 2016 that we think will be beneficial for Christians.  Our focus here at the ERB is the life, health and flourishing of God’s people, and specifically we focus on the themes of Community, Mission, Imagination and Reconciliation.

Also note that there are many more books here from the first half of the year than from the second half, as many publishers have not released their full summer and fall catalogs yet.

We’ve broken this list up into the Top 10 books and the remaining 40, which are sorted into five categories: Christian, Non-Fiction, Poetry and Fiction…

What books are you most looking forward to in 2016?
