the reading list

IMG_4866 Confession: I often start books that I do not finish. It’s not because I don’t like them, it’s not that they aren’t interesting…I’m not sure what it is really. But, I have recently made a list of all the books that I have that I haven’t read yet, or haven’t finished, along with the few that I purchased while in the States this summer. And in case you happened to be interested, I included the list for you below:

Crazy Love Francis Chan
Created to be His Help Meet Debi Pearl
Don't Waste Your Life John Piper
El Caso de Cristo Lee Strobel
Ending Slavery : How We Free Today's Slaves Kevin Bales
Escaping the Devil's Bedroom Dawn Herzog Jewell
Forgotten God Francis Chan
Good News About Injustice Gary A. Haugen
Good to Great and the Social Sectors Jim Collins
Heavenly Discipleship Michael Wells
Humility: The Journey toward Holiness Andrew Murray
J. Hudson Taylor : A Man in Christ Roger Steer
Mero Cristianismo C.S. Lewis
Since Nobody's perfect…How Good is good enough? Andy Stanley
The Jesus I Never Knew Philip Yancey
The Kingdom Message Gregory J. Dabel
The Power of a Praying Wife Stormie Omartian
Too Busy Not to Pray Bill Hybels
Too Small to Ignore Dr. Wess Stafford
Treasuring God in Our Traditions Noel Piper
Velvet Elvis Rob Bell
Visioneering Andy Stanley
When Heaven Invades Earth Bill Johnson
When Helping Hurts Steve Corbett & Brian Fikkert

If you’ve read any of these and really enjoyed them, let me know! I haven’t decided in what order I’ll read them yet, and would utilize any input you might have for me. (You might notice that there are a few in Spanish, and though those might take upwards of a century to finish, I do intend on doing it!) Also, if you have any book recommendations for me, I hope to get some new books next time we’re home (books in English are hard to come by in Nicaragua!)

  1. If it helps, I believe a free audio version of the Andrew Murray book is on librivox.org
