Top 12 Christian Books of 2016

I have read some fantastic book this year, and when it came to deciding which books I would say were the top in their genre this year it was tough! However, the book I chose for the top 12 Christian each hold a key to my reading heart. They have been prominent in my reading year.  Each book is not only in the top 12 but is number 1 for many reasons that they each hold for a reader. Here are just a few of the unique characteristics the books held to make me say they were a hit!

  • Suspense
  • Love
  • Charm
  • Faith
  • Forgiveness
  • Tears
  • Joy

Trust me these book hold more than just these pieces, but I know that I will continue to turn to these authors and their words for these reasons. I hope that you will take a chance and read about these books, support these authors and have a cheery New Year!

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul.

—G. K. Chesterton
