Jeff Purswell's List of Significant Pastoral Books Published In 2013

Jeff Purswell's 2013 Book List BPFI

The end of a year brings forth endless lists - “best of,” “worst of,” “most significant,” “most over-rated” - one last chance in the year for people to publish their opinions. Some lists are more useful than others, and for pastors, book lists are doubtless the most interesting.  Any such list, by definition, refle...
