Book Summaries

The number of books published every year in the United States has increased by over 500% in the last decade. In addition to bestsellers and other books that become popular and capture headlines for a few weeks, there are also practical books on pastoral ministry, books on outreach strategies, and books wading into long-standing theological debates, making new arguments, or reframing older ones. And while these books are being published, you may well have a list of classics you’d like to read but haven’t gotten around to yet.

Docent Book Summaries can help you keep up with the latest big releases or provide a useful overview of a classic book you want to read but won’t get to anytime soon. Docent’s archive of book summaries includes 300 summaries of authors ranging from Bill Hybels to Tim Keller to John C. Maxwell. Docent partners can also request new book summaries and specify the kind of summary they would like–a two point overview with bullet points or an in-depth analysis of the book’s arguments. The book summaries are yet another way that Docent partners with pastors to equip them for fruitful ministry.
