My Reading List

I’m putting together a list of books I’d like to read this year, because I’m determined to read more and to actually finish what I start! (my stack of started-but-not-finished books is aggravating) In thinking about this though I put together a list of books I’ve read in the last two years that I’ve enjoyed and have challenged me (at least the ones I can remember that I’ve read, some of which are making the list again for this year!). In case you are interested I’m sharing all this with you (I love reading other people’s book lists…) This does not include books I’ve read to my children, which will make up a whole other blog post).

2014 Book List (if I read one a month I can do this!):

Gospel-Powered Parenting, by William P. Farley
Total Church, by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis
A Light to the Nations, by Michael W. Goheen

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, by Eric Metaxas (my January book)
Practical Theology for Women, by Wendy Alsup
You Can Change, by Tim Keller
(up for Re-Read):
Life Together, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer 
Going Public, by David & Kelli Pritchard

  • Read and enjoyed: You Can Change, Give Them Grace, Glimpses of Grace, a tree grows in Brooklyn, and the help. Want to read bonheffer. I am currently reading extravagant Grace and really liking it! Thanks for the list!

  • I am inspired… I need to stack up my books and see what needs to be finished and what I can start. 🙂 Maybe we can have a coffee and you can share the nuggets you come across…
