Summer Reading List

June 16, 2011

I don’t know how much of my “summer” I’m actually going to get to dictate. And I don’t know if I’m going to have any money to spend on books after two weeks in Ecuador/without husband’s income, so I’m going to call this my Ideal Summer Reading List.

Sun Stand Still
by Pastor Steven Furtick

“In Sun Stand Still, Steven Furtick challenges you to believe that the audacious faith that we see in the Bible, the faith that caused a man to pray and see the sun stand still in the sky, is the same faith we can claim for ourselves today.” 

I’m down for that.


Erasing Hell
by Pastor Francis Chan

“With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in hell. But as they write, ‘We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.'”

Too true. I like Francis Chan.


The Heavenly People
by Eugene Bach and Brother Zhu

“Go underground into the world of Brother Yun, the Chinese house church, and the Back to Jerusalem Movement.” 

I’m always interested in the latest from Brother Yun/Back to Jerusalem.




What’s on your reading list – realistic or ideal – this summer?

    1. Works of Love- Soren Kierkegaard
    2. The Resurrection of the Son of God- N.T. Wright
    3. The attributes of God. Vol 1 a journey into the Fathers Heart- A.W. Tozer
    And hopefully my study of Romans.
    Lastly just finished tozers “reclaiming Christianity” and it is amazing!

        Ha, your very welcome Lex. Oh, if you want one last great book to read and I think most people should.
        4. The Cost of Discipleship-Dietrich Bonhoeffer–If I may say about this book, this book will change you for the better. It challenges you and provokes you to not just believe in cheap grace but grip the cross and bear the marks of Christianity.

    Hey Lex,
    Have you had the chance to pick up or read any of these books yet?

      Ha. No. I leave in six days to Texas for training for Ecuador, where we’re leading a couple dozen teenagers on a mission trip in the jungle. :) I haven’t had time for ANYTHING. You should see my poor yard.

      Have you? Recommendations on where to start?
