Review: 100 Christian Books That Changed the Century

User Review  - Darren - Goodreads

Good book. Needs to be renamed to emphasize emphasis on American/British Evangelical - mostly ignored Orthodox and Catholic works. Generally good choices - I'd quibble with a few. Well written summaries of only a page or two, explaining the importance of the book. Definitely recommended. Read full review
