Sometimes I go several months before running into what I consider to be “great books.” Then out of the blue, several such books will fill my “to read” pile. I thought I would share a few of the books I read this month that I consider to be great books.
Untamed, by Alan and Deb Hirsch, may go down as a raw classic in how to change our domesticated view of Jesus.
And, by Hugh Halter and Matt Smay, is a long-overdue missionally directed book showing us one way to bring together all the various church models on behalf of the Kingdom.
Exponential, by Dave and Jon Ferguson, not only tells the story of Community Christian Church and the pilgrimage of Troy McMahon, but it also lays out the principles for starting a church planting movement.
Viral Churches, by Ed Stetzer and Warren Bird, has to be one of my all time favorites because it lays out the potential for church planting movement in such simple terms that even I can get it. It’s message is “multiply everything.” Told you it was simple, but it’s another classic.
Trust Agents, by Chris Brogan and Julien Smith, is a secular book that discusses how to build influence and improve your reputation on the web.
There aren’t many two-week periods when I run across this many books of this caliber. I hope you can grab a copy of each and devour them all.
