Now is that time of the month in which I like to share what I read in the past month with hopes that it will inspire and motivate others to read more. My hope is that while proclaiming the importance of reading, I am also exemplifying it while at the same time others may get some ideas about what to read. So here is a quick look at what I read in this past month (click the title to learn more abou the book):
- When Everything is Missions by Denny Spitters & Matthew Ellison: A continuation in my studies on missions the authors differentiate between missions and other aspects of church.
- Christ Has Set Us Free edited by D.A. Carson: A collection of sermons of the Gospel Coalition’s 2017 conference tied to Galatians and Martin Luther. Read my review of the book here.
- Faith is for Weak People by Ray Comfort: Full of great examples, Comfort answers some of the top objections to the Christian faith. Read my review here.
- Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren: We’ve started trying some audiobooks on our longer car rides; this one was the free book of the month. Just avoid it . . . it is one of those rare times when I actually quit the book before the end.
- 300 by Frank Miller: Graphic novels are a popular genre, so I’ve decided to try a couple this year, beginning with this one because it was recommended. I’m still not sure where I fall in this genre.
- Portraits of Courage by George W. Bush: Politics aside, it went on sale on Kindle, so I picked it up and simply enjoyed reading about people who would otherwise remain nameless.
- Epic by Aaron Armstrong: A graphic novel version of the Bible of which I am still evaluating. A book review is forthcoming.
- The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis: In my effort to read through the Chronicles of Narnia this year, I completed yet another book . . . FYI, the book is better than the movie.
- The Wrecker by Clive Cussler: Of Clive Cussler’s series that I have read, this is becoming one of my favorites simply because the setting is different (Early 1900’s while following a private detective named Isaac Bell). The storyline is fairly predictable unfortunately, but I am enjoy the casualness of these particular books.
Now that July is here, for many in the northern hemisphere, the time for summer vacations and/or relaxation is here. Earlier in June I recommended some potential summer reads (see the list here), but what is your reading plan for the summer? How do you plan to expand your reading genres and continue to relax and grow this summer?
