What I’m reading

Currently, my reading selections have changed as I attempt to discern the spiritual and intellectual climate and culture in my new context of metropolitan NYC.  Lately I have been reading books on leadership development, theology and global poverty alleviation.

  1. Add this one to your list…. DO HARD THINGS by brett and alex harris. You’ll finish it in 5 hours and you can do a 4 to 8 week sermon series on it without blinking an eye. Every teenager needs to read this book and learn to rebel agains a culture of low expectations. I think I’m going to make every one of our 18-25 year old Ground Zero Masters Commission students read it before graduation. It’s an amazing book that is merely pointing out some pretty obvious things about the culture, but for whatever reason, no-one has seemed to notice until these guys started thier blog and their book. Google it and Check it out!! –drew–
    Drew, thanks for the suggestion. I will try to check it out
