Recently i read:
A Life of Balance (KP Yohannan)
The Hole in our Gospel (Richard Stearns, President of World Vision)
Passion and Purity (the lovely miss Elizabeth Eliot)
The Heavenly Man (Brother Yun)
I Will Follow You (Jerry Bridges)
The Practice of Godliness (Jerry Bridges)
Humility (Andrew Murray)
The Lord’s Table
Counterfeit Gods (Tim Keller)
Am i any more humble, pure, heavenly? Probably not. Did I learn a TON? Definitely. I wish I took better notes. When i am reading these sorts of things, and it’s worthwhile, I can’t stop—I walk and read through my commute to the point where it’s not safe–:) and i suck up all the info like Johnny 5 in Short Circuit 2.
Anyone have any new suggestions or want to borrow one of the above books?
I will say that my most recent was by Keller and he was right on about idols. I’m working on figuring out what mine are (we all have idols, it’s just a question of what they are!) — then replacing them (just removing doesn’t help us, has to be replaced with Jesus Himself. Oh no. Gave the book away–so sorry!
