Over the past few years I have had a number of people in the church ask me to recommend a “good book”. I must admit that the idea is rather funny to me. You see I am what might be called a ‘boring reader’. I read for information and understanding, not for recreation. I have friends that tell me about the amazing time they just “got lost” in a book. About the book that they just couldn’t put down because the story was “so amazing”. I don’t think I have ever been that engrossed in a book, ever. However, the Chronicles of Narnia, I must admit, remain my favorite books of all time.
All that being said I try to read about 20 books a year. They range in topics like leadership and personal development to basic studies in genetics and geology. Some books I might recommend to others, but many simply end up on the shelf, half read. Some, and this is not often, are in my opinion life changing. The change may be small, or it may have sparked a paradigm shift in my thinking. Either way the impact that they had for me was, and is, a lasting one.
Below is a list of books that have had that kind of connection in my life. Maybe you have already read them, maybe not. But if you are attending River of Life and want to know what I am reading just look at the list below. I hope you take the time to read some of the books for yourself. Feel free to let me know if you do< i would love to hear your thoughts. Maybe we can sit down and have some coffee one day and talk about them.
Blessings in your journey,
A tremendously powerful book. If you want to be both challenged and encouraged to take your prayer life to the next level. Than I recommend giving this a read. It is not the answer to all of your questions but it is a wonderful roadmap to prayerful victory in your life.
