2011 Christian Books of the Year

The votes are in and and several different sources have selected their top books for 2011.  Three of them are listed below as you consider what to spend your time reading nexts year.

Monergism’s top 10: Monergism tends to be theology focused, so many of these books are dense.  It still worth skimming through to get ideas for reading in 2012

Christianity Today’s book awards: CT picks two or three books for a variety of categories including apologetics, history, Christian living, Biblical studies among others

Tim Challies top book list:  Challies is an uber-blogger and mega-reader, so his list is worth paying attention to.  His list covers his favorites rather than the best books, so it’s different than Monergism’s or CT’s.  It includes a book on hosptiality, public schools, biographies and marriage.

The one book that is recommended on all three lists is Tempted and Tried by Russell Moore.  Tempted and Tried is about the spiritual battle of temptation.  You can find a more detailed summary at Monergism Books.

For lists of all time book recommendations based on how long you’ve been a Christian, review the new Christian, growing Christian and mature Christian pages.  If you need ideas for parenting books, take a look at the How to Parent page.
