Top Ten Books of 2013
Ok, I picked eleven this year.
The Pastor’s Justification, by Jared Wilson. This book is must reading for every pastor or every man considering pastoring. It reminds pastors that Jesus is their justification, not their ministry.
The Missional Quest, by Lance Ford and Brad Brisco. If you have a consumer mindset when it comes to church, then you need to read this book. It lays out good steps for change.
The King in His Beauty, by Thomas Schreiner. Schreiner has been pumping out great books on biblical theology. It’s another gem from a humble and solid scholar.
Sensing Jesus, by Zack Eswine. A unique book. It’s difficult to explain the contents, but it basically comes down to living as a human before God in life and ministry.
Saving Eutychus, by Gary Millar and Phil Campbell. This is one of the best books on preaching I’ve read. There is a lot of helpful stuff in this book.
Galatians, by Douglas Moo. I’ve been waiting for this book for years. There are many helpful things in this book. This is another homerun by Moo.
Walking with God through Pain and Suffering, by Tim Keller. This is a typical Keller book: biblical, gospel-centered, and immensely practical.
Kingdom Come, by Sam Storms. This is the most thorough and up to date treatment on the Amillennial position. It deals well with a myriad of topics and issues.
Systematic Theology, by John Frame. This is a massive book. It’s heavy on the Doctrine of God and Scripture, but light on other parts. It’s still a good book though.
