I absolutely love to read! One of the conversations that comes up regularly is about what books I’m reading, or what books I recommend. So I decided to put it out here for all to see what I’ve read recently, am currently reading and plan on reading next, as well as my quick synopsis of each book.
Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick- A great book about audacious faith and having a personal vision for your life that believes God for bigger things than just the American dream. Very inspiring!
Enemies of the Heart by Andy Stanley- This guy is by far one of my favorite writers/ pastors/ communicators. In this book he talks about 4 things that can potentially poison your heart to the detriment of your relationships. Guilt, Anger, Greed, and Jealousy are all confronted head on. My favorite thing about Andy Stanley is that he always gives practical, nuts and bolts solutions to the problems that are presented.
Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler- I actually just started a day ago, but so far so good. His writing style is clever and the language is somewhat advanced so I don’t think it will be an easy read. If you want something to put by the bed at night this probably isn’t it. If you’re a disciplined reader and take the time to retain the details then this seems like it’s going to be a good one.
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis- I actually started reading this a year or so ago, but I have a bad habit of trying to read 2 or 3 books at a time. I was trying to juggle a couple and this one didn’t make the cut. I’ll read it all by itself this time.
There you have it. Do with it what you would like.
