My Year In Review 2007 - The Books

For the past couple of weeks, I have been giving you my "Top (insert number)" list for a variety of things. From books, to movies, to trips, I will list my personal favorites from 2007.

Now for my top 10 books of 2007: 1) "American Shaolin" by Matthew Polly 2) "The Bedford Boys" by Alex Kershaw 3) "Shadow Divers" by Robert Kurson 4) "The Unexpected Journey: Conversations with People Who Turned from Other Beliefs to Jesus" By Thom Rainer 5) "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer 6) "Sex God" by Rob Bell 7) "Tales From The Wake Forest Hardwood" by Dan Collins 8) "Voices of Valor" by Douglas Brinkley & Ronald Drez 9) "Shame Off You" by Alan Wright
