Books you should’ve read in 2017

I’m being facetious in the title.[1] But here are my favorite books that I read in 2017. They are in no particular order. That would be too difficult. If I could make you read just one book, however, it would be The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch. 

  1. John M. Perkins, Let Justice Roll Down
  2. William Lane Craig, Reasonable Faith
  3. Ben Sasse, The Vanishing American Adult
  4. Andy Crouch, The Tech-Wise Family
  5. Andrew T. Walker, God and the Transgender Debate
  6. Ishmael Beah, A Long Way Gone
  7. Tim Challies, Do More Better
  8. Nabeel Qureshi, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus
  9. Frank Turek, Stealing from God
  10. John S. Dickerson, The Great Evangelical Recession

Here are some contenders: 

 In a future post, I will list out twenty of the books I plan to read in 2018


[1] Books are somewhat personal and particular to the season of life that we are in. I like book lists. They can be helpful but I would never suggest someone just pick books to read from some list. There are too many books and too little days for an approach like that. Though, I would point you to the importance of reading old books (even though this was not an old books year for me).

About Paul O'Brien

I am a lot of things; saint and sinner. I struggle and I strive. I am a husband and father of three. I have been in pastoral ministry for 10 years. I went to school at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary but most of my schooling has been at the School of Hard Knocks. I have worked various jobs, including pheasant farmer, toilet maker, construction worker, and I served in the military. My wife and I enjoy reading at coffee shops, taking walks, hanging out with friends and family, and watching our three kid's antics. :)
