“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
Summer usually involves a change in schedule. Whether that is managing kids on summer break, or programmatic schedule changes at the church, or even a little vacation time, it is a good time to always have a book with you. In the age of e-readers and smart phones, there is really never a reason to be without something to read.
So we offer up to you a reading list for Summer 2015:
- Less Clutter. Less Noise.: Beyond Bulletins, Brochures and Bake Sales – One of our favorites after hearing the author at a conference last summer!
- Soul Repair: Recovering from Moral Injury after War – An awesome resource for all of us as we manage the spiritual and physical injury of war.
- How the Church Fails Businesspeople (And What Can Be Done About It)
- Church Unique: How Missional Leaders Cast Vision, Capture Culture, and Create Movement – The perfect conversation starter for communities seeking to clarify direction and vision.
- Real Christianity [Annotated] – A theological reflection of William Wilberforce, an English abolitionist, politician and minister. The reflections on action and faith transcend time and place.
- Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger: Moving from Affluence to Generosity – A large meal of a book, but great resource for the tough questions about how we act justly in an age of affluence.
- The Sweet Spot: How to Find Your Groove at Home and Work – A new resource in the growing knowledge bank of figuring out family and work balance.
