We’ve previously asked for your recommendations for the best books for undergraduates (which had a tremendous response) and best books for graduate students (who must be harder to shop for). Thus, it only makes sense for me to ask:
What are the best books for new faculty?
If you need help getting started, here are a few categories:
- Practical advice books
- Books to take your theology and spiritual life to the next level
- Books on “culture making” (there’s a leading category!), education, or other aspects of faculty life
- Comfort or counsel for those who are facing disappointment with their career
- Books about building relationships
