The purpose of this post will be to share what I'm reading, and to hear from my "readership" (which I am sure numbers in the hundreds:)) what they/you are reading. I am going to try and do this every couple of months or so in hopes of learning of new books. Let's just say this is a online book swap.
So here goes...right now I am reading three different books:
1) Jesus For President by Shane Claiborne & Chris Haw
I am not very far in to this one yet. About a year ago I read "Irresistible Revolution" by Shane Claiborne, and it challenged me as much as any book ever has. So I have been looking forward to this one. Shane always pushes me "out of the box" so to speak.
2) Parting The Waters: America In The King Years: 1954-1963 by Taylor Branch
This books is 700 plus pages, and I think I am about 200 pages in or so. It is a fascinating read. The focus of the books is the life of Martin Luther King Jr. However, I have never read a book on him that gives so much historical context to his life. I highly recommend this book.http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw/105-7412997-6857224?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Parting+The+Waters
3) With Christ In The School Of Prayer by Andrew Murray
I am reading this book along with the learning community (small group) that I am a part of. I have been reading a chapter each day to kick off my devotional time. Each chapter is a different lesson on prayer from the teachings on prayer of Christ. It is a very convicting read, as it has highlighted my lack of faith.
