In recent days I’ve been absolutely loving (can I use the phrase “lovin’ on”?) the book A Gospel Primer by Milton Vincent.
This book is a short, rich, gospel-saturated book that is intended to help the Christian rehearse and remember the gospel every day. A single paragraph in this book is enough to encourage and build my soul.
Listen to this rich quote:
There is simply no other way to compete with the forebodings of my conscience, the condemnings of my heart, and the lies of the world and the Devil than to overwhelm such things with daily rehearsings of the gospel.
Doesn’t that quote absolutely blow your socks/stockings/liederhosen right off? This is a great book, well worth the few bucks it costs.
A few other books I’ve been reading or read over Christmas:
Making It All Work – David Allen (recommend)
Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA – Tim Weiner (recommend)
Jesus Wants to Save Christians: A Manifesto for the Church in Exile – Rob Bell (do not recommend)
Tribes – Seth Godin (blah)
Talent Is Overrated – Geoff Colvin (recommend)
Okay, now I want to hear from you. What’s on your reading list? Or on your “to read” list?
