This month… TWO!
But they have been great!
First is Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God by Francis Chan. Only read this book if you plan on doing something with it. Chan does not leave you with the option of floating by in you life as a Christian. We are in or out, hot or cold… there is a reason Jesus said he would spit out the lukewarm. This is Chan’s argument. Great theology, wonderful teaching, amazing application. It’s almost Christmas… buy this for everyone (and be sure to read it yourself).
Then I read a commentary (that I have been reading for the past few months and finally finished) on the book of James (Reformed Expository Commentary). This has been great as far as looking into the intent of the difficult passages in this book including the section on faith and deeds. I think Doriani did a great job of explaining what James meant and I look forward to more commentaries in this series. (my pastor, Josh Cousineau, used a similar Commentary for the Galatians series).
One month to go all! Thanks for hanging on!
