Yesterday, a friend asked me for some book recommendations to help him grow spiritually. That’s a dangerous prospect to ask me for a list of books. A person could come away from the experience thinking, “I need to be more careful what I ask for.”
So I scrolled through my books database for suggestions that I had read in the last couple of years or so. (Yes, I have a spreadsheet that lists the books that I have read in the last fifteen years.) Here is my list, improved a bit from what I recommended to him, in reverse chronological order as to when I read them.
King’s Cross by Tim Keller
A Praying Life by Paul Miller
Life with God by Richard Foster
with small groups or as a personal study. It is also available free as a pdf file from the Desiring God website which I recommend highly. I read the free version of this book while holding my laptop in my hands and walking on my treadmill.
Crazy Love by Francis Chan
This has got me seriously thinking though about what books I would genuinely recommend of the books that I have read. I hope to write about that soon.
Would you comment below and list books you’ve recently read that made a significant difference in your life?
