Reading this month

Thanks so much for everyone who made recommendations the last time I posted a booklist. I'm picking up those recommended books, but slowly. There is so much to read!

Here is a list of what I've read in the last month:

Getting Things Done by David Allen

Great book on personal productivity. Slow in the middle, but Chapters 11-13 are worth the price of the book (especially the idea of Next-Action).

Phantastes by George MacDonald

Beautiful and imaginative and for sale for $1 on Kindle.

Thomas Wingfold, Curate by George MacDonald

Thoughtful narrative meditation on faith and doubt. Free on Kindle.

The Myth of a Christian Nation by Gregory Boyd

Challenging book by a thoughtful firebrand who loves Scripture. Didn't agree with all of it, but think it's worth reading.

The Ball and the Cross by GK Chesterton

Laugh-out-loud, page-turner and philosophical work. What's not to love? Free on Kindle.

Exponential by Jon and Dave Ferguson

These guys combine the missional movement with the megachurch movement through the practice of apprenticing. Fascinating book. Only $6 on Kindle.

Invitation to a Journey by Robert Mulholland

Mulholland shares the most insightful material I've ever read for how the Myers-Briggs fits into Christian spiritual formation. Very helpful.

The Pineapple Story by Otto Koning

Strong insights into anger, submission and the Christian life wrapped in a dated and mildly offensive package. Maybe the racism is in there to force me to work on anger in the moment!

On deck, I'm working on Tim Keller's Center Church, The Resurrection of the Son of God by NT Wright, and Naturalism Defeated. I'm also hoping the Divergent series comes through from the library. I was number 43 in line, but they have a ton of copies of it.

  1. You should check out "Death By Living" from N.D. Wilson - I much enjoyed it.
