I was reflecting on the number of good books that I have read this year. It had been a very good year for stocking quality books in my personal library! Not all of these books are church based/christian, but will help you be all you can be for Christ! And not all of these books are brand new, it just took me a while to get to some of these. So here is a partial list … The Best of the Best!
1.) The Christian Holman Standard Bible: A must read for anyone wanting accuracy and readability in a Bible.
2.)Crazy Love – Francis Chan: The seriously crazy love God has for us and that we should have for Him.
3.) Sun Stand Still – Steven Furtick: How big is your God? Steven’s God is real big – so should yours.
4.) 7 Practices of Effective Ministry – Andy Stanley: Change your life, change your ministry = changing the world
5.) Overcoming Your Shadow Mission – John Ortberg: Changing my life and ministry. Good deeds and works are not always as good as they seem. Could good be distracting you from better or best?
6.) Making Vision Stick – Andy Stanley: Read it three times so far! Little book with much to teach.
7.)Radical – David Platt: Not for the weak and fainthearted Christian! A serious challenge to go deeper and farther with God than you ever dreamed. Everyone should read this book!
8.) Just a Walk Across the Room – Bill Hybels: If you want to be a more effective witness for Jesus, read and use this book.
9.) Six Battles Every Man Must Win – Bill Perskins: So powerful I taught it as a men’s bible study!
10.) Holy Discontent – Bill Hybels: People who change the world have a passion for what they do.
11.) A Dad Shaped hole in my Heart – H. Norman Wright: If you are a parent or grandparent – especially if you have a daughter – please read this book immediately.
Never stop learning and growing!
