My Soon-to-Be Reading List

The “End of Grad School Countdown” is on…6 weeks and counting. I’m sure that last Monday night will be bittersweet. Two years of school, hard work and learning. I’m not sure what I’ll do with myself when it’s over.

One thing I do know…I will pick my own reading list again. 🙂 It’s been a while since I’ve been able to read a book for the shear pleasure of reading it. Don’t get me wrong…I haven’t disliked all of my school books, but I am ready to read something that I pick out.

Here are some books I’m looking forward to reading sooooooon. In no particular order…

  • Gift of Life by Henri Landwirth — This book is the story of Give Kids the World, written by the man who founded the Village.
  • The Shack by William P. Young — I’ve heard mixed reviews, and I just want to read it for myself.
  • Less Clutter, Less Noise by Kem Meyer — This book is about church communications and comes highly recommended by my good friend Cindy Biernat.
  • The Principle of Path by Andy Stanley — I heard about this one during Louie Giglio’s interview on the Catalyst Podcast and I’m intrigued. It’s Andy’s newest book, I believe.
  • Leadership is an Art by Max DePree — I asked for this book after my first grad school class. I had studied a little about this guy and he intrigued me. The book’s been sitting on my shelf ever since.

I’m sure there are others I’m not thinking of right now.

But I’ll also take suggestions. Anybody have something to recommend?

Fiction? Nonfiction? Doesn’t matter…

    i’ve tried to start The Shack like 3 times and just can’t get myself past the first few chapters…i think it’s because it started out as such a “trendy” thing to read…let me know what you think of it. you know i love a good analogy.

    I loved The Shack – just finished it… I didn’t know it was a “trendy” thing to read until after I started it… I enjoyed it though. Leadership is an Art was REALLY good too… or at least I enjoyed it. I had to read it for Dr. Keidis’s (SP?) class. He also made us read “First Break All the Rules” – that one was good too…

    I am reading Live from Jordan right now (from the library so I can’t lend it) but it gives some insight on the Middle East in case you wanted it : )

    I would add “Prodigal God” by Tim Keller & “The Cross Centered Life” by CJ Mahaney to that list. Assuming you haven’t read either of them yet.
