Books for ’12

Posted by flyingbk on 01/03/2012

I finished my principles post. Included in that post is the desire to read more relevant books that will promote personal and spiritual growth. So here’s what’s on my list to read in the first few months of 2012 (again, links are to the Kindle page):

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson (I’m hoping to learn from the life of this entrepreneurial savant.)

The Book of Man: Readings on the Path to Manhood by William J. Bennett (I want to help the boys in my youth group become men.)

When Teens Pray: Powerful Stories of How God Works by Cheri Fuller and Ron Luce (I hope to inspire my kids concerning the power of prayer while being inspired myself.)

Practicing Affirmation by Sam Crabtree and John Piper (I’m looking to share insights from this book with my student leaders.)

The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God by Timothy Keller (This book will be useful in my sex & dating series come Februrary. And of course, I hope this book is very relevant in my life soon enough!)

Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor: The Life and Reflections of Tom Carson by D.A. Carson (I’m definitely looking  to be sharpened in ministry by this work.)

There are others on my to-read list (including simply for pleasure books), which I’ll share at another time. The reading and learning has begun!
