I recently gave away thousands of my books in my library. I only have a few left. In the exercise of deciding which few books I would keep, I asked myself a hypothetical question: What if could keep only 25 of the books?

I began the process thinking it would be a simple exercise. I was wrong! I had great trouble narrowing the list to 25. Here are some of the parameters I used.

I didn’t hesitate to choose books that were simply personal preferences.

I decided at the onset I would strive to choose a variety of issues and topics, rather than just the 25 best books.

I was sufficiently lacking in humility, and put two of my own books on the list.

I really struggled eliminating many commentaries of individual Bible books.

With those caveats in mind, here are the 25 books in alphabetical order. I have little doubt you readers will engage in some interesting conversations!

What do you think of my 25 book choices? What books would you include that I did not include? Let me hear from you.
