My Top 10 Reads for 2009

2009 Top 10:
1. The Praying Life: Connecting With God in a Distracting World by Paul Miller
2. Why We Love the Church: In Praise of Institutions and Organized Religion by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck
3. The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God by D.A. Carson
4. Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters by Timothy J. Keller
5. Finally Alive by John Piper
6. The Institutes of Christian Religion by John Calvin (most of it anyway)
7 Jesus the Evangelist by Richard D. Phillips
8. Running Scared: Fear, Worry & the God of Rest by Edward T. Welch
9. Respectable Sins: Confronting the Sins We Tolerat by Jerry Bridges
10. Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism by Timothy J. Keller
(Note: The ordering of the books is not necessarily 100%.)

And the three that I didn't get to read yet, but should probably be on this list, if all the reviews I've seen are right:
1. Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith by Timothy J. Keller
2. In Christ Alone: Living the Gospel Centered Life by Sinclair Ferguson
3. The Vine and the Trellis: The Ministry Mind-set that Changes Everything by Colin Marshall and Tony Payne.
