Books for Your Reading List
Lately I’ve been asked by a few different people who are starting to compose their own reading lists if I could share about some of the good books I’ve read over the last year or so. Here is a list of the books that I recently found to be good reads:
- Leadership and Self-Deception (The Arbinger Institute) – One of the best books I’ve read on leadership dynamics and growing in your relational perspectives.
- Crazy Love (Francis Chan) – Highly recommended as a reminder of God’s love for us.
- In a Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day (Mark Batterson) – This book played an important part in my transition back to Colorado. I reread it this past year and the second read brought out some new understandings.
- Stuff Christians Like (Jonathan Acuff) – I laughed so hard when I read this book because it’s satire and it’s easy to relate to.
- Communicating for a Change (Andy Stanley) – I would recommend this book for anyone who is a regular communicator.
- Spiritual Leadership (J. Oswald Sanders) – One of the best reads for leaders in ministry.
- The Talent Code (Daniel Coyle) – Coyle spent years researching how talent is developed and not necessarily part of your genetics. If you like Malcolm Gladwell then you will love this book.
- Flickering Pixels (Shane Hipps) – You can read my review of it here.
- The Gospel According to Lost (Chris Seay) – For LOST fans this book is a must-read. I read it in one sitting.
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Stephen R. Covey) – I read this back in college but reread it again five years later to get a fresh take on it.
- Next Generation Leader (Andy Stanley) – For young leaders who don’t necessarily have a complete understanding of where God has called them but do know where God has gifted them.
