A good friend of mine Brad Brisco tagged me today. You can check out his great blog over at missionalchurchnetwork.com. He’s got some great picks on his list as well. What are yours?
One book that changed your life:
In the Name of Jesus by Henri Nouwen
One book that you have read more than once:
Call to Commitment by Elizabeth O’Conner (This is the story of the first missional-emerging church called the Church of the Savior in Washington D.C. It started almost 60 years ago.)
One book you would want on a desert island:
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (Only because I have yet to finish it.)
Two books that made you laugh:
Father Joe by Tony Hendra and Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.
One book that made you cry:
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving.
One book that you wish you had written:
The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. ($$$ Can you say…ka-cheeng! $$$) Oh, forgive me.
One book that you are currently reading:
Free of Charge by Miroslav Volf.
One book that you have been meaning to read:
The Resurrection of the Son of God by N.T. Wright. (I need a running start on this one. All 816 pgs. of it.)
and one other:
The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen. (Too many good friends have encouraged me to read it. Thanks to Brad M. I’ve got it and will dig into it soon. Thanks…)
