7 new books to read in 2022

As a reader, I’m always looking for new books to read every year. Some are for pure entertainment, others are to learn about different topics and skills. Here are seven new books to read in 2022.

Or at least the ones I’m interested in.

New Books To Read About Faith & Culture

Terms of Service by Chris Martin. This book focuses on what social media is actually doing to us from a theological perspective. Chris is one of the sharpest thinkers I know in this area, and I am confident that this book will be worth all our time.

The Happy Rant by Ted Kluck, Ronnie Martin, and Barnabas Piper. If you’re a fan of the podcast, you’ll love this book. I’m looking forward to seeing how the feel of the show translates into the printed word.

Talking About Race by Isaac Adams. There are too many books on the issue of race and ethnicity that are painful, and painfully too few that are good. I have high hopes for Adams’ book (officially releasing on the day this post published), which offers a starting point for engaging this very important conversation.

Orthodoxy by GK Chesterton, with annotations by Trevin Wax. Orthodoxy is one of my all-time favorites. It is one of the first overtly theological books I read as a new Christian and it’s always stuck with me. I’m looking forward to this new edition.

Jesus & Gender by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Eric Schumacher. The topic of gender continues to be full of terrible takes. But I expect these two authors are going to handle it with grace.

New Fun Reads

Hell and Back by Craig Johnson. I’ve long loved the Longmire series. This next volume continues the saga of the Wyoming sheriff as he dives deeper into the investigation of a missing Native American woman.

Fox Creek by William Kent Krueger. The next book in Krueger’s Cork O’Connor series, this one focuses on our hero as he races “against time to save his wife, a mysterious stranger, and an Ojibwe healer from bloodthirsty mercenaries.”


So those are seven new books to read in 2022, or at least seven I want to. Will any end up on my favorite reads list? We’ll find out in December.
