Bill By the way, I've removed the votes for a few books that weren't on the original Christianity Today "Top 100 Books of the 20th Century" list -- they were great books but didn't belong on this list.

(The idea of this list is to reorder the 100 books on the CT today list by popularity)

Keith A This list of books seems to me to be carefully chosen to represent everyone and everything in a very politically correct way. I have read a majority of them but there are many truly great books not on this list that should replace some that are.

Anyone can add books to this list.
