TOP FIVE Christian Books from 2011
Not written in 2011 - read in 2011
The Prodigal God - Timothy Keller
Brilliant pastor-author Keller turns the Biblical parable of the prodigal son inside out and upside down and in doing so makes it speak afresh.
The Hole in Our Gospel - Richard Stearns
Remember - the hole is in OUR gospel - because we have stopped caring for the poor and downtrodden around the world. The President of World Vision powerfully makes the case to find a need and meet it both at home and around the world.
Radical - David Platt
The best in the growing number of books that call the contemporary church in America to a 'no holds barred' faith that will rediscover New Testament radical abandonment to God. Strong stuff!
Today We Are Rich - Tim Sanders
Upbeat positive thinking author hits home with a down to earth retelling of his Grandmother's homespun wisdom. The prologue alone is priceless.
The Little Book of Hours: Praying with the Community of Jesus
Fantastic little collection of prayers and readings that have become my lifeline - especially when travelling.
