I reviewed over a hundred titles on our blog in 2016. So here’s the top books from that list. My categories is as follows: Best Book on the Bible, Best book on Theology, Best book on Apologetics, Best Practical Christian book, Best General Non-Fiction, Best Comic Book and Best Audio Book. Each category has a link to my original review.
Best Book on the Bible
This was the best book I’ve ever read on the organization of the Psalms and how it contributes to our interpretation of it. This is years of serious research and reflection on the Psalms. I believe it would be a resource I would use as a reference for a long time and perhaps worth reading more than once!
Best book on Theology
I first heard of this book nearly ten years ago but I finally got around to reading this classic in 2016. Leon Morris poured a lot of energy to his exegetical research on doctrines related to the Gospel (Justification, Redemption, Propitiation, the blood, etc).
Best book on Apologetics
For seasoned Presuppositional apologists or those new to Presuppositional apologetics these collection of shorter writings provide brief but clear explanation on Presuppositional apologetics among other subjects.
Best Practical Christian book
This book was nothing short of life transforming. The power for true change in life is the Gospel and Jerry Bridges connects the dot of how this is so. This book has changed my life dramatically and also members of my congregation.
Best General Non-Fiction
One of the my top two books in understanding how the military dealt with Iraq and the bigger picture of military leadership.
Best Comic Book
Good story and clean. Well researched in terms of the historical content but has a steampunk feel. Kids and adult comic book readers will enjoy it!
Best Audio Book
You can never go wrong listening to God’s Word.
