I am looking forward to the Summer for many reasons. One of them is that I expect to have a little more time to catch-up on my reading.
Reading and learning is essential for personal growth. Here are the books that I have on my list. What’s on your summer reading list?
- “Twelve Unlikely Heroes” by John MacArthur. How God commissioned unexpected people in the Bible and what He wants to do with you.
- “7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness” by Eric Metaxas. This book covers seven biographies of men who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men. Each of the seven men profiled- George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson- call the reader to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.
- “Debt-Free U” by Zac Bissonnette. In this book the author describes how he paid for an outstanding college education without loans, scholarships, or mooching of his parents.
- “Start” by Jon Acuff. Punch fear in the face and move from average to awesome.
- “No More Mondays” by Dan Miller. Fire yourself and other revolutionary ways to discover your true calling at work.
- “EntreLeadership” by Dave Ramsey. 20 Years of practical business wisdom from the Trenches.
- “One Perfect Life” by John MacArthur. Jesus’ perfect life is the culmination of history and the theme of all Scripture. It’s not surprising that John MacArthur has spent more than half his pulpit ministry preaching through the four books dedicated to that life. You know them as Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. In One Perfect Life, John weaves the life of Christ into a seamless, compelling, chronologically organized story.
