World Magazine’s Books of the Year 2021 Issue

One of my longtime favorite magazine’s is the Christian bi-weekly news magazine World. And one of my favorite annual issues is the “Books of the Year” issue, which usually is published at the end of the year. This year it is the latest issue – Dec.4, 2021 – and once more it is packed with significant titles of interest and benefit to thinking and growing Christians.

Editor Michael Reneau introduces it with this words:

Dear Friend,

Our annual Books of the Year issue has always been one of my favorites, even before I began working for WORLD. As I edited our writers’ reviews across four categories of books this year, a theme emerged. From the introduction I wrote to this issue’s package of reviews: “These books don’t shrink from conflicts in a world still groaning for the redemption the Scriptures promise, but they do help us remember God is still at work, in details great and small. As we enter seasons of Thanksgiving and celebrating God incarnate, our 2021 Books of the Year in four categories help us remember who’s in charge of a still-fallen world.”

There are four categories of books featured, with the book chosen as the “book of the year” in each category highlighted and others worthy of “honorable mention” described afterward. Want to see the one chosen in the “accessible theology” category?
