Books of 2009

The books I read this past year were:
  • The Divine Conspiracy, by Dallas Willard (started but didn't finish)
  • The Shack, by William Paul Young
  • The Blue Parakeet: Rethinking How You Read the Bible, by Scot McKnight
  • The Furious Longing of God, by Brennan Manning
  • Practicing His Presence, by Brother Lawrence & Frank Lauback
  • Missional Renaissance, by Reggie McNeal
  • The Most Loving Place in Town, by Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges
  • A Grief Observed, by C.S. Lewis
  • ReJesus: A Wild Messiah for a Missional Church, by Michael Frost & Alan Hirsch
  • Fearless, by Max Lucado
  • The Only Necessary Thing (writings of Henri Nouwen), compiled by Wendy Wilson Greer
I'm still in the midst of reading 'The Only Necessary Thing', and just started reading Reggie McNeals' 'Practicing Greatness: 7 Disciplines of Extraordinary Spiritual Leaders'.

Boy, as I look back over these, I couldn't even begin to say which were the best. I didn't read a lot of books this year, but they were all pretty darn good.
