This is an exciting time of year because popular Christians and popular Christian websites begin pumping out their recommended books of 2018. This allows us to fill our 2019 reading list with some of the best books that were read in 2018. It also allows us to make that last minute Christmas gift purchase for the avid reader in our family! With that said, I simply want to simplify the search for you by giving you the links to these lists:

My Top 10 Books of 2018

I only read about 30 books this year. I read a lot from other books, but, because of the way in which I was reading, I did not read them in their entirety. With that said, here are the 10 books that I enjoyed the most this year (in no specific order):

Canon Revisited by Michael Kruger

Rejoicing in Christ by Michael Reeves

John Newton: From Disgrace to Amazing Grace by Jonathan Aitken

Martin Luther: A Spiritual Biography by Herman Selderhuis (This was one of the most popular books in 2017)

Katherina and Martin Luther: The Radical Marriage of a Runaway Nun and a Renegade Monk by Michelle Derusha (This was another popular book of 2017)

Theology of the Reformers by Timothy George

The Story of Reality: How the World Began, How it Ends, and Everything Important that Happens in Between by Gregory Koukl

Challies’ 2019 Reading Challenge

Tim Challies just came out with his 2019 Christian Reading Challenge. This is a neat way to think through the books that you will read in 2019. This is what Challies says about it:

Do you love to read? Do you want to learn to love to read? Do you enjoy reading books that cross the whole spectrum of topics and genres? Then I’ve got something that may be right up your alley—the 2019 Christian Reading Challenge.

So, if you are interested in this, then here is the link to the 2019 Christian Reading Challenge.
