The Academy of Parish Clergy (APC) released its 2011 top ten book list. Topping that list was Martin Marty’s Building Cultures of Trust. Last year’s book list featured Bruce Epperly and Katherine Gould Epperly’s Tending to the Holy (Alban Institute). Below I’ve included links to the 20 books represented by these two lists. I would love to know if you have engaged these books at all and if you would recommend them. I’ve only read one book of all those listed, Kindling Desire for God, as part of my ministry thesis at the Divinity School. A few more on the lists pique my interest, including Practice Resurrection and Tending to the Holy.
