Top books for pastors

Leadership Journal has selected their Golden Canon Leadership Book Awards for 2009. These are considered the "most valuable for church leaders." Interestingly enough, I haven't read a single one of them. Hmm. That probably says something... Anyway, their top ten are:
  • Knowing Christ Today - by Dallas Willard
  • Leading On Empty - by Wayne Cordeiro
  • Longing For God - by Richard Foster and Gayle Bebee
  • A Praying Life - Paul Miller
  • Why We Love the Church - by Ted Kluck and Kevin DeYoung
  • Deep Church - by Jim Belcher
  • Love Is An Orientation - by Andrew Marin
  • Lost and Found - by Ed Stetzer
  • The Monkey and the Fish - by Dave Gibbons
  • The Next Evangelicalism - by Soong-Chan Rah
