Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

My Top 20 Reads in 2008


I Love Books

Originally uploaded by Weeping-Willow

I was able to read a number of books this past year, so as we are ending the year, I thought I would pass on the top 20 books that I read in 2008. Because I read them in 2008 does not mean that these books came out in 2008. Some did, but most didn’t. There are a number of recent books as well as some older books. This list is not in any particular order. I didn’t really want to take the time to rank each of them, because I enjoyed each one of them quite a bit. I have written a review on many of them. If you want to see if I wrote a review, just type in the title over in my search box and see if it comes up. Then you can read the review.

If you have read any of these, let me know which ones were one of your favorites. If you have created a top 10 or top 20 list of reads this past year, let me know about it. I would love to check your list. So now on to the top 20 reads of 2008, in no particular order.
