A New Year, A New Reading List


I have a confession to make…I didn’t read much last year.  I know the old adage, “Leaders are Readers”, but I’m not one of those people whose idea of fun is a good book and a quiet place to read it.  I would much rather watch a movie, listen to music, sit in silence, or have my teeth drilled without novocaine. So, I don’t read because I love to read, I read because I need to read.  I need to read because I need to grow as a person, a husband, a father and a pastor.  With that said, the following is my reading list for 2014:

  • When I Don’t Desire God – John Piper
  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen Covey
  • A Quest For More – Paul David Tripp
  • Give and Take – Adam Grant
  • Strange Fire – John MacArthur
  • Christ Formed in You – Brian Hedges
  • Stonewall in the Valley – Robert Tanner
  • The Truth of the Cross – R.C. Sproul
  • Preach – Mark Dever & Greg Gilbert
  • Ronald Reagan 100 Years – Ronald Reagan Library Staff
  • How People Change – Timothy Lane & Paul David Tripp
  • The Top Ten Leadership Commandments – Hans Finzel
  • The Eye of Moloch – Glenn Beck
  • The Greatness Principle – Nelson Searcy
  • The Conviction to Lead – Albert Mohler
  • Transforming Prayer – Daniel Henderson
  • Living The Cross Centered Life – C.J. Mahaney
  • Leaders Who Last – Dave Kraft
  • The Holiness of God – R.C. Sproul
  • King Me – Steve Farrar
  • Developing the Leader Within You – John Maxwell
  • The Richest Man in Babylon – George Clason
  • God is Love: A Biblical and Systematic Theology – Gerald Bray
  • The Juvenilization of American Christianity –Thomas E. Bergler

This list does not include the books, commentaries, theologies, histories, ect. I will read as I prepare to teach and preach.  However, it is a good list of what I hope to accomplish…starting today!
