Books

I collect books like it’s going out of style. I don’t know why. Now, while I probably read more than the average person, I still don’t read enough to catch up with all the books I keep wanting to read. But nevertheless, I love reading and I’ll read all kinds of books from fiction to non-fiction to Christian. On this page are a couple of things:

First, what I am currently reading right now. I am usually working on two at a time, but I eventually will end up focusing on one more than the other. I switch off between fiction and non-fiction, just so I have some variety in my

Next, are some of my favorites that I love or have shaped who I am. Most of these, I feel, would be a great read for anyone and I recommend if you are looking for something new to read.

My Top Books List.

Christian

Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer– A great book on the fellowship of believers. It talks about what true Christian community is all about.

50 Reason Jesus Came to Die by John Piper– The title says it all. It really digs deep into the meaning of why Jesus did what he did. After I read through it the first time, I periodically skim through it.

Knowing Scripture by RC Sproul– Learning how to read the Bible and get something out of it is something that may Christians struggle with. RC Sproul really helps you to discover new ways of reading Scripture.

Fiction

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes- Sad and a bit depressing at points, but one of my favorites books of all time. It really shifted my perspective on how we treat people, especially people who have special needs.

Sphere by Michael Crichton- One of the only books I’ve read more than once. I love this thriller, definitely my favorite Michael Crichton book.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney- Read this straight through in about an hour and half. Couldn’t stop laughing. The main character, while fundamentally flawed (who wasn’t in Middle School), is still very relatable.

Non-Fiction

Fred Factor by Mark Sanborn- This book changed the way I approached many things in my life. A convicting but encouraging book as well that teaches that serving others is really all that matters. A great read for anyone, no matter what career field you are in.

QBQ! The Question Behind the Question by John G. Miller- A book designed for business people in mind, but the core of the message can easily be transferred to whatever field you may be in. This book shifted my thinking in personal accountability.

Daring Greatly by Brené Brown- A paradigm shifting book. The unique perspective of this book will really change the way you view things like shame, guilt, and vulnerability. One of the best books I have ever read.

What else am I missing?  Any suggestions for me to read?  Feel free to share them below.

    • well, the only book I’m actually “reading” right now other than my school books is Crazy Love. The school books are really the only ones I’m reading
