Ten Books for Preachers to Read

In the most recent issue of Preaching Magazine, Al Mohler suggests the following 10 books for preachers to read in 2010. I've already gotten a little bit of a jump start on the list having read three of them (numbers 3, 4 and 5), and am looking forward to following his advice on a number of others.

  1. Christ-Centered Worship: Letting the Gospel Shape Our Practice by Bryan Chapell (Baker Academic)
  2. The Case for Books: Past, Present, and Future by Robert Darnton (Public Affairs)
  3. Why We Love the Church: In Praise of Institutions and Organized Religion by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck (Moody Publishers)
  4. Christless Christianity: The Alternative Gospel of the American Church by Michael Horton (Baker Books)
  5. The Trellis and the Vine: The Ministry Mind-Shift that Changes Everything by Colin Marshall and Tony Payne (Matthias Media)
  6. Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches by Russell D. Moore (Crossway)
  7. Ancient Word, Changing Worlds: The Doctrine of Scripture in a Modern Age by Stephen J. Nichols and Eric T. Brandt (Crossway)
  8. Perspectives on Christian Worship: 5 Views edited by J. Matthew Pinson (B&H Academic)
  9. Souls in Transition: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of Emerging Adults by Christian Smith with Patricia Snell (Oxford Univ. Press)
  10. The Young and the Digital: What Migration to Social-Network Sites, Games, and Anytime, Anywhere Media Means for Our Future by S. Craig Watkins (Beacon Press)
