Trevin Wax, blogging at Kingdom People (www.trevinwax.com), has joined the hordes of Top 10 officianados and devised his own top ten books of 2008. He has upped the proverbial Top 10 ante, however, and is giving away a complete set of his 2008 favorites, together with a copy of the ESV Study Bible (http://trevinwax.com/2008/12/15/kingdom-people-christmas-giveaway/). Let's see David Letterman match that.
All this listing of favorites and bests and so forth is compelling me to devise my own list, not necessarily of books that were published in 2008, but ones that I read this year (I tend to be somewhat behind the curve in this respect). So, of the books I've read this year, here's a list of my favorites:
1. The Sovereignty of God (A.W. Pink).
2. He is Not Silent (R Albert Mohler, Jr).
3. The Cross of Christ (John Stott).
4. Speaking the Truth in Love (David Powlison)
5. Christless Christianity (Michael Horton)
Don't count on me to do a giveaway of my list just yet. When I hit the big time like Trevin Wax, we'll see.
