What I am Reading

This is what I recently or am currently reading. You can get most of these books on Amazon. I do most of my reading on a Kindle because traveling with physical books gets bulky and heavy. Rarely I find something I want to read that is not available on Kindle and in those cases, I rummage around until I find the physical book.

Look on the bottom of the page for my “want to read” list. I would greatly welcome your comments about good books you are reading and would recommend.

Currently reading:

The Conviction to Lead: 25 Principles for Leadership that Matters by Albert Mohler.

Finished reading:

Divine Directions: 7 Decisions That Will Change Your Life by Craig Groeschel.  This light read will encourage you that you are only one decision away from affecting the rest of your life. Reading time about 4 hours.

Sleeping Coconuts by John Nystrom.  This is the story of how a tsunami changed the way this Wycliffe family viewed the priorities of Bible translation.

Learning to Listen, Learning to Teach by Jane Vella.  This book is full of practical examples from around the world about how we can better teach adult learners.  Dialogue education is well explained and compared to other methods.

Paul Behaving Badly: Was the Apostle a Racist, Chauvenistic Jerk? by E. Randolph Richards and Brandon J. O’Brien.  This book is written to challenge our understanding of some of the controversial things Paul said and shows how he challenged the culture of his own day.  One of the interesting principles explained and illustrated is the “trajectory hermeneutic” (William Webb).

Do More Better: A Practical Guide to Productivity by Tim Challies.  This is a short read on productivity.  It is full of useful tips.

Queued up on my Kindle “next reads”:

The Other Worldview: Exposing Christianity’s Greatest Threat by Peter Jones

Strategic Planning for Public and Nonprofit Organizations by John M. Bryson.  I have not purchased this book yet as it is rather expensive but it is on my list of “need to read”.
