Looking for a few good books. Help

Okay, I said I would read more books than I normally do this year. I put 10 but its more likely going to be closer to 20 (books I read by myself and books and read with my wife.) There are a few books I'm going to read with my leaders this year, but most of those will be books I've already read. I'm looking for books I haven't read.

So far, the books I have earmarked to read in 2008 are:

In a Pit With A Lion by Mark Batterson
Making Vision Stick by Andy Stanley
Simply Christian by NT Wright
Simple Church by Thomas Rainer and Eric Geiger
5 Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni
Soul Cravings by Ervin McManus
Love Beyond Reason by John Ortburg

Any suggestions from any of you out there?

Some great books to choose from here. I am reading "Simply Christian" right now as well. Excellent stuff. Here are a few others on my nightstand that I read passages from when I get the chance:

Theology of the Kingdom by George Eldon Ladd
Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard
Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
A Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis (for our book club)
Phantastes by George MacDonald (intro by C.S. Lewis)
Pascal's Pensees (intro by T.S. Elliot)
The Greater Trumps by Charles Williams
Mysticism by Evelyn Underhill
We Are Iran - The Persian Blogs

Needless to say it takes a while to get done with a book.
