10 Favorite Christian Books I Read in 2017

Here’s a list of my 10 favorite Christian books I read in 2017. By best, I do not mean I agree with everything in the books. Rather, I mean, I found the books thought provoking and helpful in stimulating my own thinking. Not all of the books were published in 2017 (also, 2008, 2009, and 2011) but I read each volume for the first time in 2017. The books will be listed alphabetically.

I will also put out my favorite preaching and sports books I read in 2017.
