My choices from the last 10 years

Besides being books which appealed to the different dimensions of my Christian life, because I'm a Bookseller, these are also the books that I could really recommend to others to enhance their Christian reading. My ultimate book of the past ten years, but not within the normal remit of the GoodBookstall, has been "Les Miserables" by Victor Hugo, not an overtly Christian book but one of the best stories of love and redemption I have ever read.
