Hamilton on the Top Books

In light of CT's Top 50 books list, I decided to ask a few friends for their top 10 list of what most influential and what should have been most influential in the last 50 years.

All of the responders followed a different format in responding. I'll post their responses in individual posts.

First up is Jim Hamilton, Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies, at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (Houston Campus). He combined the list, and focused more on the influence within the seminary world:
  1. J. I. Packer, Knowing God
  2. George Eldon Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament
  3. Roland Bainton, Here I Stand
  4. Leon Morris, Apostolic Preaching of the Cross
  5. John Stott, The Cross of Christ
  6. John Piper and Wayne Grudem, ed., Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
  7. Geerhardus Vos, Biblical Theology: Old and New Testaments
  8. F. F. Bruce, Paul, Apostle of the Heart Set Free
  9. Carl F. H. Henry, Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism
  10. John Piper, Desiring God
