My Top Ten Reads of 2007

I was inspired by this post by Tullian Tchividjian, to put by top ten reads of 2007. Many of these books changed my life and thinking this year:

1. Doctrine of Repentance by Thomas Watson
2. One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven by Mark Cahill
3. Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem
4. Basics for Believers by D.A. Carson
5. The Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul
6. Nothing in My Hand I Bring: Understanding the Difference Between Roman Catholic and Protestant Beliefs by Ray Galea (Matthias Media)
7. The God of Sex by Peter Jones
8. According to Plan by Goldsworthy
9. The Fruitful Life by Jerry Bridges
10. Amazing Grace in the Life of William Wilberforce by John Piper

Oh yeah, the two books by Driscoll would be #11 and #12: Reformission, and Confessions of a Reformission Rev.

Hey Nick,

Hope all is well with you and the family. I was wondering if you have any recommendations on books about the apostle Paul??? The bookstore here at Caronport has a few but I am a little skeptical on their selection. Any thoughts??? You can email me at ssowden@briercrest.ca

Mike,

I would be interested in reading your paper, and maybe we could get together and talk about it.

Aeri,

My top for my life would have to be: Knowing God by J.I. Packer, Basic Christianity by John Stott, and Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. Outside of the Bible, these books have shaped me the most.
