 Your Top 3 Books Written in the Last Ten Years

I'm a bookworm and becoming more of a voracious reader all the time. I've benefited greatly from SI book reccomendations; however, I find myself in a dilemma. I can't think of any books that written in the last ten years that would make my top ten list. In fact, I don't know how many books written in the last ten years I've actually read since I was converted and born again (four years ago). I don't want to bash modern Christian publishing, I believe the Holy Spirit is still inspiring men to write with prophetic urgency to this generation, so I ask for your top three (or more) recommendations of books published in the last ten years. The only two I can think of right off the top of my head are:

Which None Can Shut by Reema Goode (published last month)
Reflecting His Image by K.P. Yohannan (2003)

 Re: Your Top 3 Books Written in the Last Ten Years

Apostolic Foundations by Art Katz.

Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala. (I think it's in the last ten years?)

Jesus Freaks vol 1 & 2. I forget who the author is.

 Re:

Thanks!

I've been meaning to get around to reading Francis Chan and Fresh Wind Fresh Fire. The Jesus Freaks Volumes are written by Voice of the Martyrs and I've read a couple of books from them and other materials.

I didn't know Art Katz's work was so recent. I'll have to look at Apostolic Foundations. It'll be on my list.

 Re:

I haven't made a list of my "three best" books, but TRIUMPH THROUGH TRAGEDY (by David Wilkerson) was extremely encouraging during a tough experience a few years ago.

http://www.wilkersonpublications.com/Triumph-Through-Tragedy-P4C2.aspx

It is also available from Amazon (with a better description) for as low as $1.50 (brand new).

 Re:

1. Radical, Platt
2. When God Weeps, Erickson-Tada
3. Cross Centered Life, Mahanney
Bonus and very new: What is the Gospel?, Greg Gilbert (fantastic, simple and very helpful for those who fumble at evangelizing like me )


These are "simple" books but almost function like devotionals that you can read and re-read to keep the plain things the main things. I am a vorational consumer of books by mostly dead authors yet these simple recently written works do the most transformative job for me.

 Re:

1. Green Leaf in Drought, by Isobel Kuhn
2. The Story of Job, by Jessie Penn-Lewis
3. The Great Falling Away, Today by Milton Green

These are older than 10 years. But they are the top ones I have read in the last 10. Sorry about that,

 Re:

I have actually found a number of recent books to be well-worth the read:

-Signs of the Spirit by Sam Storms
-Fifty Reasons Jesus Came to Die by John Piper
-Brothers, We Are Not Professionals by John Piper
-Justification and Regeneration by Charles Leiter
-Trials of Theology by Cameron and Rosner
-Why We're Not Emergent by Two Guys Who Should Be by DeYoung and Kluck
-Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

These are within 15 yrs:

-When People are Big and God is Small by Ed Welch
-True for You but not for Me by Paul Copan
-Deeper Experiences of Famous Christians by James Lawson

I probably have 10-15 more on my wish list too.
