Besides the Bible: 100 Books that Have, Should, or Will Create Christian Culture

By Dan Gibson, John Pattison, and Jordan Green

Besides the Bible is a guide to the really great books that you “should” read—ones that matter. Covering a wide array of subjects and authors, from Christian bookstore best sellers to classics of Christian history and more, you’ll find yourself agreeing with some titles, shaking your head at others, and even shocked by a few. This isn’t a dry catalog with dull summaries of books authored by a bunch of dead guys. Dan Gibson, Jordan Green, and John Pattison, along with an all-star team of today’s most interesting Christian thinkers (including Donald Miller, Phyllis Tickle, Steve Taylor, and William P. Young) will re-ignite your love for reading or if you’re a little lazy, give you enough information to make it seem like you’re incredibly well read.
