One of our regular bloggers, Diana Butler Bass, had the great idea to asked the Red Letter Christians group for short lists of their favorite books that they’ve read this year. We’ve gotten a great response and will be sharing them over the few remaining days of 2006.

To kick things off, Sojourners has published a list of recommended reading in their special issue on books and film . You can read capsule reviews with the full article, but here are the titles:

Justice in a Global Economy: Strategies for Home, Community, and World, edited by Pamela Brubaker, Rebecca Todd Peters, and Laura Stivers

Bridges to Contemplative Living with Thomas Merton, series edited by Jonathan Montaldo and Robert Toth

Beyond Prisons: A New Interfaith Paradigm for Our Failed Prison System by Laura Magnani and Harmon Wray

Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? by Philip Yancey

Donegal Suite, by John McNamee

Encountering Ecclesiastes, by James Limburg

The New Friars: The Emerging Movement Serving the World’s Poor, by Scott Bessenecker

Vital Christianity: Spirituality, Justice, and Christian Practice, edited by David L. Weaver-Zercher and William H. Willimon

Look for more “books of the year” posts from other God’s Politics bloggers in the days to come!
