December is a month for making lists, and my favorite annual list to make is top books of the year.
I check this list more than twice, however — because each year the choosing becomes more challenging.
By choosing holiness instead of fulfilling the desires of the flesh, couples are raising the bar and allowing God to bless them in ways they never could’ve imagined.
Holiness gives a relationship a chance to grow in spiritual depth and encourages a stronger faith walk as a couple.
Physical attraction is trumped by the pure love of God that couples can show one another.
True love isn’t a selfish act—rather it’s the unconditional love that flows from the Spirit of God into their relationship.
Compared to last year, 2016 saw fewer big commentary releases and fewer biblical theology titles, but more narrative-driven books by historians and journalists.
Books on personal suffering were prominent in 2016, with at least eight noteworthy titles.
My list focuses on non-fiction Christian books published in the last calendar year, and sixteen titles rose to the top.
But first, a couple of overall comments on the year.
Topical studies are great for honing in on what the Bible says about a particular issue.
