Note: Given my personal and professional commitments during 2014 I often opted to simply provide book ratings rather than book reviews. As such, no links are available for this year’s list.
From the list above, the two that have had the greatest impact on my journey of faith are
- The Rebirthing of God: Christianity’s Struggle for New Beginnings by John Philip Newell, and
- The Next America: Boomers, Millennials, and the Looming Generational Showdown by Paul Taylor.
