    “Lit” by Tony Reinke

      That’s a good list you’ve got going. Loved Greener Grass Conspiracy and Lit; how’s Dude’s Guide to Manhood?

        I’m enjoying it now. Initially, I didn’t really care too much for it. It was looking for the book to be saturated in scripture. It isn’t – atleast not blatantly. (If you know scripture, you can see the biblical principles throughout.) It wasn’t until I realized that Darren Patrick wasn’t strictly writing only for the believing men, but for unbelieving men as well. This is a book that, I think, a believing man would enjoy and have no issues giving to an unbelieving friend. It’s not “preachy”, but still gets the point across. It was a book I received for free in exchange for a review, so I will have one written up in the next week or so. I’ll shoot it over to you if your interested.

    “Jesus is Better” Merritt
    “The Fire That Consumes” Fudge
    “Seven Days That Divide The World” Lennox
    “Navigating Genesis” Ross
    “Bonhoeffer” Metaxas

      How’s Merritt’s book?

      • http://johnmarkharris.net/ John Mark Harris

        Surprisingly good. It’s all narrative, personal stories, which isn’t usually what I prefer, but chapter 10 I believe is quite good on the necessity of church for authentic Christianity.

    Desire of Ages, Ellen White (Pacific Press)
    At Peace in the Storm, Ken Gire (Bethany House)
    Church Zero, Peyton Jones (David C. Cook)
    The Apostle, John Pollock (David C. Cook)
    Pagan Christianity, Frank Viola & George Barna (Barna)

      That’s a pretty diverse set of books, Greg.

        Four of the five are connected with my desire to understand the earliest church, as I believe that is what is needed most today – passionate, primitive faith focusing on the truth of Scripture. The last speaks to my current situation and a need for a big heaping dose of the peace-that-passes-understanding.
