Those of you who have been following my blog know that I have been working through Essential Church? by Thom and Sam Rainer. I have really enjoyed the Rainers’ book and feel that it has much to offer those who are involved in shaping the ministry of the local church. Buy this book and give it to your pastor(s). Make sure he reads it by asking him follow-up questions about it. The book is too valuable to be ignored.
Now that I have finished reading Essential Church?, I have a few more books sitting here that I am going to be posting reviews on shortly. Here is what I have in the que:
- A World of Difference: Putting Christian Truth Claims to the Worldview Test by Kenneth Richard Samples
- The Apologetics of Jesus: A Caring Approach to Dealing with Doubters by Norman L. Geisler and Patrick Zukeran
- The Shape of Faith to Come: Spiritual Formation and the Future of Discipleship by Brad J. Waggoner
The list above is not in any particular order. In fact, I would like to know which of the above titles sounds most interesting to you. If there is a general consensus, I will start there. Also, if you have read any of these books, I would like to hear what you thought. Leave your thoughts as a comment to this post.
