Well, here it is–my list of the top 25 Christian books of 2008.  Because of the size of the list, I will not make any annotations.  There are others, for sure, that are noteworthy, but were I to condense the best books published in 2008 to a list of 25, this is what I come up with.  Feel free to comment and share your thoughts.
