What Book Has Changed Your Life?

If you had to choose one book that has most deeply affected your faith life over the past ten years, what would it be? That’s the question we posed to some of our favorite theobloggers and authors at the beginning of summer. We also invited them to share the one book they think every Christian should read, but probably hasn’t yet.

Our responders included:

Jana Riess, author and editor at Westminster John Knox Press

Peter Wallace, author, host, and producer of the “Day1” radio program
Sara Miles, author and Director of Ministry at St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church
Carl Gregg, Associate Pastor at Northminster Church
Amy Julia Becker, author and student at Princeton Theological Seminary
Monica Coleman, Associate Professor of Constructive Theology and African American Religions at Claremont School of Theology
Steve Thorngate, Assistant Editor at Christian Century magazine
Alyce McKenzie, Professor of Homiletics at Perkins School of Theology
