Faculty Book Recommendations

What We’re Reading: Book Recommendations
from Gordon-Conwell Faculty

One frequent request we receive from alumni is for advice from faculty about what you should be reading. Amidst the flood of new books published every year, what books should you be sure not to miss? We asked our faculty to suggest some important recent books, and they definitely delivered!

Below you’ll find links to three pages of recommendations, grouped by general area of study. On each page you can click “Read More” beneath any book to see a faculty quote about the book and why it is worth a read. Clicking on the book itself will take you to the Gordon-Conwell bookshop on ChristianBook.com, where you can purchase it. Several professors across various fields recommended two books that many of our administrators, staff and faculty have been reading and discussing over the last few months. We have featured those two books on this page.

Whether you’re seeking resources on practical or academic theology, ministry in the church or the marketplace, or guidance on modern ethical or contemporary issues, we hope these new reads will be a blessing to you and your ministry!
