At Beliefnet I am participating with other bloggers in nominating my top books of the year and here are my top picks. I’ve chosen books I’ve reviewed here and ones that drew either strong affirmation and great discussions.

Klyne Snodgrass’ complete study of the parables: Stories With Intent: A Comprehensive Guide to the Parables of Jesus.

Tom Wright’s wondrous and suggestive book on the resurrection: Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church.

Chris Wright’s thorough examination of the Bible through the lens of missional: The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible’s Grand Narrative.
