Top 10 Books of 2013

Each year (see 2010, 2011, 2012) I share a list of my top ten books published that year.  Creating this year’s list was both a challenge and a joy.

Rob Bell What We Talk About When We Talk About God
Wendy Cadge Paging God: Religion in the Halls of Medicine 
Lillian Daniel When Spiritual but Not Religious is Not Enough: Seeing God in Surprising Places, Even the Church
Meredith Gould The Social Media Gospel: Sharing the Good News in New Ways
Galen Guengerich God Revised: How Religion Must Evolve in a Scientific Age
John R. Mabry Faithful Generations: Effective Ministry Across Generational Lines
John Shelby Spong The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic
Jim Wallis On God’s Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn’t Learned About Serving the Common Good 
Cecil Williams & Janice Mirikitani Beyond the Possible: 50 Years of Creating Change in a Community Called Glide 
Ethan Zuckerman Rewire: Digital Cosmopolitans in the Age of Connection

Note: Only those books I reviewed here on sowhatfaith.com were considered for inclusion on this list.

So What?

From the list above, the two that have had the greatest impact on my journey of faith are

  • God Revised: How Religion Must Evolve in a Scientific Age by Galen Guengerich, and
  • Faithful Generations: Effective Ministry Across Generational Lines by John R. Mabry.

What book or books published this year have been most helpful to you as you seek to follow the way of Jesus?
