Here’s a look at some on mine:
Top of my list right now is King’s Cross – have you read it? Maybe I’m falling behind
Haven’t read it yet. I want to, though.
Enchantment, AND, Becoming a God Magnet, Better Than Good, 100 Ways to Motivate Others, Secrets of Closing the Sale, Selling 101, The Love Dare, Getting Things Done, Time Tactics of Very Successful People, Taking Jesus to Work, Innovation on Demand, Too Small to Ignore, Axiom, The Prodigal God, Parenting from Surviving to Thriving, Boundaries With Kids, The New Dare to Discipline, Rails for Java Developers, Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X and Sitepoint Ruby on Rails.
At least, those are the ones on my shelf waiting to be read. There’s several more in my Amazon wish list…
Your reading is incredibly varied, Steve. This is good
Currently reading “Slave” by MacArthur, “Breaking the Missional Code” by Stetzer & Putman, and “Activate: An Entirely New Approach to Small Groups” by Searcy.
To read list: “Learning Theology With the Church Fathers” by Christopher A. Hall, “Desiring God” by Piper, “Living in God’s Two Kingdoms” by VanDrunen
A God Who is There – Carson, Spiritual Rhythm – Mark Buchanan (I’m almost done, this is a rich diet of theology and words), St. Patrick – biography in Thomas Nelsons’ series – Christ-Centered Preaching – Chappell, Reverberation – Jonathan Leeman, Tempted and Tried – Russell Moore
Great list – I am still kicking myself for not picking up Tempted & Tried and The God Who Is There at TGC. Might mean a trip to Grand Rapids is in order
Now I feel like none of my extracurricular activities are good enough. (Movie quote you won’t get.) I’m reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, the complete Miss Marple short stories, Just So Stories (Rudyard Kipling), Relentless Hope, Future Impact and Enchantment (on hold at library).
Oh, I forgot the whole point of me commenting: I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Chesterton biography.
I’ve had to start it twice now; both times I picked it up I couldn’t get into it. I’m hoping the third time will be the charm, especially since I do enjoy me some Chesterton.
You’re right, I didn’t get the quote. I did look for it on Google though. Was it Legally Blonde?
No, no, no. Clueless. My quotes are always from Clueless.
See, that’s why I don’t get it. I have never seen Clueless. Now if it was a Star Wars reference, I’d probably get it.
“The Duties of Parents” by J.C. Ryle; “Olney Hymns” by John Newton and William Cowper, “Sticky Teams” by Larry Osborne, and “Margin: Restoring Emotional, Physical, Financial, and Time Reserves to Overloaded Lives” by Richard Swenson.
What’s your take on Sticky Teams and Margin?
I love Sticky Teams! Heard several people recommend it including Matt Chandler. We are doing to have our entire Church leadership team read it and wrestle through the questions in the back.
This is good to know. I suspect I should probably be reading this book
In no particular order:
John Piper: 50 reasons jesus came to die and seeing and savoring jesus christ
C.s. lewis: surprised by joy, problem of pain
N.t. wright: surprised by hope, after you believe
Tullian tchvidjian: surprised by grace. (Looks like I’m in for a lot of surprises…)
Tim keller: age of reason
And then there’s always the literature that I want to read…
Crazy Love by Francis Chan
Started, but needing to finish:
Preachers Portrait by John Stott
I Believe in Preaching by John Stott
Desiring God by John Piper
Don’t Call it a Comeback ed. Kevin de Young (thanks to you! )
Launching Missional Communities by Mike Breen and Walt Kallestad
Essential Works of Andrew Murray
Spiritual Parenting by CH Spurgeon
And let’s not get started on books I want to re-read….
Currently reading “After You Believe” by N. T. Wright and “Back to Darwin” edited by John B. Cobb Jr.
To read list: “Darwin and the Divine” by Alister McGrath, “The End of the World and the Ends of God” edited by John Polkinghorne and Michael Welker, “The Work of Love: Creation as Kenosis” edited by John Polkinghorne, “Evangelicals & Scripture” edited by Vincent Bacote et al, “Four Views on Divine Providence” and “Divine Foreknowledge: Four Views.”
You folks all have excellent reading choices
Side note, I forgot to include “Radical Together” by David Platt in this photo; I started it this afternoon and it’s very challenging. The Greener Grass Conspiracy was excellent. Look for a review this week.
I’m reading “Almost Christian” by Kenda Creasy Dean and “How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home” by Derek Thomas right now.
