It’s time for the annual list of the top books I have read in 2018. This has become a tradition on Thanksgiving/ Black Friday / Cyber Monday / and whatever they will call Tuesday and Wednesday in the future!

Without further ado….here are the top books I’ve read this year.

People to Be Loved: Why Homosexuality Is Not Just an Issue

This is hands down the best book on this difficult issue. Preston Sprinkle covers the Biblical passages that do and don’t apply in a thorough yet readable style. The first two-thirds is a Biblical journey. The last third of the book is worth its weight in gold as he explores pastoral responses. A must read!

I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness

In a similar vein of difficult issues facing the church and America at large, Austin Brown dives into the race issues and shares an honest perspective on what it is to be black (and a woman) in a church and non-profit world dominated by white men.

The Art of Neighboring: Building Genuine Relationships Right Outside Your Door

We made this book available at our church. A simple yet challenging look at the lost art of being a good neighbor and how we can care for others right where we live.

When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing

Nobel prize winner, Daniel Pink explores the science of timing. This is a fascinating read to consider when we do something, may be just as important as what or how.

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis

A shocking look at rural America and the depth of brokeness in the family unit. This will give you a heart for America as a mission field.

Didn’t See It Coming: Overcoming the Seven Greatest Challenges That No One Expects and Everyone Experiences

Carey Nieuwhof takes an honest look at the reality of pastoral ministry and the things which can creep up on your without warning.

Here are some lists from past years: 2017 and 2016
