8 Books that Helped Me in 2018

by Paul Tautges | January 3, 2019 9:26 pm

My reading goal for 2018 was 34 books, but I did not make it. But from the 27 that I was able to finish, here are eight that impacted me. They are listed in no particular order.

Psalms By the Day: A New Devotional Translation[1] (Alec Motyer) – I used this for my daily devotions, through the book of Psalms, and was so blessed.

Graciousness: Tempering Truth with Love[2] (John Crotts) – This little book is unique and super helpful! This gentle, yet challenging, book models its subtitle so well.

Feelings and Faith[3] (Brian Borgman) – This is an important practical theology of our emotions, as related to our walk with God.

Saving Eutychus[4] (Gary Miller, Phil Campbell) – A simple, but really helpful refresher on preaching.

How Does Sanctification Work?[5] – This is David Powlison doing what he does best, helping us think more deeply about the way the Spirit sanctifies us (without formulas).

Hillbilly Elegy[6] – This #1 New York Times bestseller is a raw memoir offering insight into the struggles of America’s white working class.

Rescuing Ambition[7] (Dave Harvey) – This is a refreshing book, which redeems godly ambition to do great things for God, and distinguishes it from selfish motivation.

The Call: Finding and Fulfilling Your Central Purpose in Life[8] (Os Guinness) – This book helped me to reflect on God’s calling and gifting.
