Our Top 10 Bestsellers of 2018

 
Eleanor Dell | December 18th 2018

2018 has been an exciting year for us here at The Good Book Company. By God’s grace, we’ve released over 40 products on a vast array of topics. We hope you loved reading them as much as we loved editing, designing, printing, promoting and delivering them.

Here is the list of our top 10 bestselling books released in 2018:

1. An Even Better Christmas

The bestselling book of the year is Matt Chandler’s new Christmas book, An Even Better Christmas. We all love Christmas—none more than Matt Chandler. He’s a self-confessed Christmas fiend. But he knows, more acutely than most, what it’s like to suffer at Christmas. In the book, he shares the story of Christmas 2009, which he spent recovering from neurosurgery and coming to terms with a terminal cancer diagnosis. This personal, warm and compelling book, shows how the God of the Bible offers what we really crave—joy and peace—at Christmas, all year round, and into eternity! It’s a lovely little book to remind yourself of the God of Christmas or to introduce an unbelieving friend or family member to him for the first time.

2. Love Came Down at Christmas

You’ve been loving this year’s Advent devotional! Love Came Down at Christmas by Sinclair Ferguson comes in at second. In it, Sinclair Ferguson brings the rich theology of the incarnation to life with his trademark warmth and clarity. And it’s got gold foil on the cover! We’re not surprised that it’s been a firm favourite of the year.

3. Take Heart

In third is Take Heart by Matt Chandler. Take Heart is a stirring, passionate call for courage to stand firm and thrive in an increasingly post-Christian culture. The book addresses the increasing secularisation of the west. However, instead of mourning the loss of Christendom, Matt suggests that it is perhaps a good thing. Take a look at the trailer...

5. The Art of Rest

Next is The Art of Rest by debut author Adam Mabry. Adam is the first to admit that he doesn’t do rest—and yet, over the years he has learnt to embrace the life-changing, soul-refreshing practice of rest. This book casts a realistic vision for rest that, if you’re anything like me, will move you to repentance for a stubborn resistance of rest and renewed dependence on the Lord.

He draws on his decades of introducing the real Jesus to people, to display the gospel in a warm, attractive way.

Next up is Women and God by Kathleen Nielson. This book enters into the discussion of what the Bible really says about women. Kathleen asks the hard questions about the Old Testament Law, the role of women in marriage and the role of women in the church, consistently pointing us to God’s word and his perfectly created order.

8. A Jesus Christmas

A Jesus Christmas is a family devotional for Advent by Barbara Reaoch. Each of the 25 readings looks at one of the serpent's lies from Genesis 3, and then shows how the glorious truth of Christmas beats it every time!

9. Growing in Gratitude

In 9th place is Growing in Gratitude by Mary K. Mohler. This thoroughly Bible-centred unpacking of Christian gratitude is Mary’s first book, and builds on her 25 years of experience in mentoring seminary wives at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. Rosaria Butterfield commented, “As I was reading this book, I felt like I was sitting with Mary in her kitchen, listening, learning, praying, and thanking God for the unity and beauty and power of the gospel to equip us, truly, to every good work”.

10. Enjoying God

And at number 10 is Enjoying God by Tim Chester. We believe in God, we serve God, we trust God, but would we say that we enjoy God on a day to day basis? What exactly does a personal relationship with God look like, and how is it even possible? This new book by Tim Chester shows us how we can enjoy God in every moment of every day, whether we are experiencing good times or hard times; whether we are changing nappies, or stuck on a train. He explores how the Father, the Son and the Spirit relate to us in our day-to-day lives, and how to respond.
