TGC Editors’ Picks: Top Books of 2015

Collin Hansen | December 14, 2015

Throughout church history Christians have innovated in reading technologies to share the Word of truth, and we aim at The Gospel Coalition to encourage Christians to be known as people of the Book first and foremost. As part of that calling we aid in the spread of books that foster understanding and application of God’s revelation. Each year we review more than 300 titles between our academic journal Themelios and our regular channel. We don’t want you to waste your life on bad books, so we like to recommend our favorites

This year our editors have individually identified one winner and one or two runner-up books in an area they cover for TGC. Criteria for selecting the winners include:

  • Includes faithful and foundational use of Scripture, both Old Testament and New Testament
  • Fosters spiritual discernment of contemporary trials and trends
  • Encourages efforts to unite and renew the church

Indeed, these are the criteria we use for the books, articles, and curriculum we publish ourselves. And this list shows we’re not alone. We’re grateful to God that we live in a time and place abounding in wonderful Christ-honoring resources, and we do not take that privilege for granted.
