It’s December, so that means it’s time for the annotated list of my favorite books of the past year. These 12 books are in no particular order—just the order in which I pulled them off the shelf.
But we must also remember the mission Jesus has given his church. The gospel we preach is about certain hope in a crucified and resurrected Savior. We must face this crisis and proclaim this gospel with the kind of confidence found only in the one who has overcome the grave.
We live in a fearful and cowardly time. The crisis we face is not a crisis of clarity but a crisis of courage.
