ChristianityToday's Top 12 Books for 2010

Here's the Christianity Today's list of 12 books for 2010. They have been selected out of 472 entries.

  1. APOLOGETICS: "God is Great, God is Good: Why Believing in God is Reasonable and Responsible" (William Lane Craig and Chad Meister);
  2. BIBLICAL STUDIES: "Sin: A History" (Gary A Anderson)
  3. CULTURE: "Souls in Transition" (Christian Smith with Patricia Snell)
  4. CHURCH: "Deep Church" (Jim Belcher) 
  5. CHRISTIAN LIVING: "Why We Love the Church: In Praise of Institutions and Organized Religion" (Kevin DeYoung & Ted Kluck)
  6. "I Told Me So: Self-Deception and the Christian Life"  (Gregg A Ten Elshof)
  7. FICTION: "Notes from Underground" (Fyodor Dostoevsky)
  8. HISTORY: "Predestination: The American Career of a Contentious Doctrine" (Peter J Thuesen)
  9. SPIRITUALITY: "Longing for God" (Richard Foster & Gayle D Beebe)
  10. MISSIONS: "The New Shape of World Christianity: How American Experience Reflects Global Faith" (Mark Noll)
  11. THEOLOGY/ETHICS: "Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview and Cultural Formation" (James K A Smith)
  12. THEOLOGY/ETHICS: "The God I Don't Understand: Reflections on Tough Questions of Faith" (Christopher J H Wright)
They are all so tempting. I only managed to get my hands on Foster's book on spirituality. For the year running, a Regent Professor's book gets an Award of Merit: Gordon Fee's commentary on Thessalonians.
