25 More Books Every Christian Should Read

25 More Books Every Christian Should Read November 21, 2011

This post is part of the Patheos Book Club. Check out the Book Club for more posts on this book and for responses from the editors.

I’ve already submitted a post for this book club, in which I both admired and argued with Renovaré’s 25 Books Every Christian Should Read: A Guide to the Essential Spiritual Classics.  But then, this weekend, I found myself in a hotel bar, across a table from Lyle SmithGraybeal, who works for Renovaré and managed this book project, and Adam English, a professor of theology and philosophy at Campbell University.

The three of us got into a friendly argument over Lyle’s list, and others around the table joined in the conversation.  While Renovaré’s list leans toward the contemplative, it’ll come as no surprise that Adam and I wrote up a list that leans theological.  Below is a scan of the napkin on which we wrote our list of 25, followed linked list.

And here’s a link to all those books.
