Christian Books: What’s Popular Where I Live

Filed under: Christianity — Tags: , , , — paulthinkingoutloud @ 11:02 am

I get to do this because I know how to spell Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Tullian Tchividjian. Not that either one made this list. But if you’re having a party tonight with Christian friends and you need a game, a Christian author spelling test wouldn’t be a bad idea. And Lysa TerKeurst.



  1. I’ve read one of those 40 – and own two others I haven’t gotten to yet (though my wife has). I wonder if that is a good score or not.

    • That got me wondering how I would score, but I started adding decimal quantities. Let me explain. There’s an alternative to Heaven by Alcorn called 50 Days of Heaven. 330 pages instead of 510. I’ve read that. We also own and I’ve used reference books like Contemporary Theology, Visual Theology, The Most Significant Teachings of the Bible and The New Testament In Its World; but haven’t read any of them cover-to-cover. I’ve used the devotional edition of Love and Respect, which again is somewhat shorter but contains all the major ideas. So… subtract all that and I’m left with a score of 4.
