Before Element began, I was completing on average two books a week, one of which was fiction. Since Element began, I've read maybe 10 non-research-for-Element-related books total, only one or two of which are novels.
I miss reading for pleasure. I haven't even been buying books, which as those close to me can attest, is a huge feat.
But I had a birthday last week, and with a birthday came some Amazon gift certificates. Holler!
Here's what's coming my way:
The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World edited by David Wells
The Art of Pastoring: Ministry Without All the Answers by David Hansen
The Contemplative Pastor: Returning to the Art of Spiritual Direction by Eugene H. Peterson
Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places by Eugene H. Peterson
The Deliberate Church: Building Your Ministry on the Gospel by Mark Dever
For Men Only: A Straightforward Guide to the Inner Lives of Women by Shaunti Feldhahn
Travels in the Scriptorium: A Novel by Paul Auster
Simple Church: Returning to God's Process for Making Disciples Thom S. Rainer
Anybody read any of these and care to offer your mini-review?
