I still associate summer time with reading- except I don’t get a free pizza or an award for all the books I’ve read anymore, bummer 😉
Anyway, here’s what I’ve enjoyed reading during Summer 2016 of our transition time. All of them are absolutely noteworthy, but I would personally describe the first two as life-changing!
As we learned in training, none of us come to the Bible without some sort of lens from culture, experiences, our own fallenness, etc. This book was very helpful for me in keeping the right focus as I approach G’s Word, to say the least. I highly recommend it! Men, you can read it, too- there is only one chapter at the end which focuses on advice for women who lead Bible Studies.
This transition overseas has revealed in my heart- I fear men more than I fear G! This book not only covers fearing G over men- it addresses the culture of fear of man that’s developed throughout history to today, and it’s absolutely fascinating. I must stop here or I will go on and on. You have my word, this book is absolutely worth your time!
I have enjoyed some great, practical books on transition this year. This one was a wonderful, spiritual look at transition. We follow the Israelites through the desert, and learn the importance of being aware of the heart habits and perspectives of G we establish during transition.
This was an excellent book addressing culture and how to recognize culture at home or abroad, how to reach out to persons of other cultures, what to expect concerning culture shock, and more! Great flow of thought and definitely not just for m’s but anyone working amongst internationals.
What’s there to say? Beautiful classics! Was recommended reading from Welch’s book, to help remind us how big G is.
I love that a friend of mine likes to ask, “read any good books lately?” It usually opens up some great discussion with people!
Have you read any good books lately? 🙂
