"...a remarkable resource for the spiritual formation...The books they commend are almost always thoughtful and important, and the way they write about them is compelling and enjoyable." --Hearts and Minds Bookstore, Best Books of 2010
"[Besides the Bible
offers a superb list of recommendations...If one were to read all 100 titles, he/she would be superbly equipped to understand not only Western culture, but also the church's role within it." --Englewood Review of Books"The premise is rather simple, but its total message is priceless. Every Christian should have this resource."
--Michael D. Bobo, Christian Literature Examiner
"...each person I have shown this book to has gotten excited about it. That's what this book is all about - taking [Christianity's] dying literary tradition and reviving the art of thought and conversation." --Relevant Magazine
