    1. Note to Self - Joe Thorn (gospel reminder in various areas)
    2. How People Change - Trip (biblical counseling)
    3. The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt - Edmund Morris (it’ll make you want to chop wood)

    People may want to know … do you schedule your reading, do it at night/morning, random times?

    Consider Jolt! - Get the Jump on a World That’s Constantly Changing by Phil Cooke
    This is a book that is very well balanced and has great insight on how to “shake” everything in your life and make things happen. Phil doesn’t hide his faith in any page and yet makes a compelling argument of the importance of it. Great for any organization and personal living.

    I think they meant “When Life’s Not Working” by Bob Merritt not when “When Life Isn’t Working”. I would also recommend “Next Generation Leader” by Andy Stanley and “The 21 Most Important Minutes in a Leaders Day” by John Maxwell.

I’m helping promote a couple of books you and your readers might be interested in and would love to get you a review copy and additional copies you can use as giveaways on the blog. No obligation or expectation, of course. Let me know if you’d like more info. The books are Spiritual Leadership and When Worlds Collide.

    Great list! I loved McNeal’s Missional Renaissance (and The Present Future). Others I would highly recommend for leadership and spiritual development are: Lead Like Jesus (Blanchard and Hodges), The Stewardship of Life (Nowery), Reverse Mentoring (Creps), Simple Small Groups (Search), The Call (Os Guinness) and Launching Missional Communities (Breen and Absalom).

    Thanks for Chazown and the online resources!! :)

    “How to Master the English Bible” By James M. Grey–After 40 years of wandering aimlessly thru the Bible Dr. Grey has given me a biblical road map which lets me know Gods word from cover to cover with simplicity and recall.

    I would say I love “Spiritual Leadership by Oswald Sanders”; but would also recommend “Leadership that Builds People 1″ by James Richard.

  26. Dec 9, 2011 at 4:12 am

    Great List, I’d also like to add “A Divine Revelation of Spiritual Warfare” by Mary K Baxter. God bless

    I know it’s not a “Christian” book per se, but Chip & Dan Heath’s book, Made To Stick, is a great book for learning how to take the principles of Christ and apply them in a way that does what we want - help create life-change. The more we can learn about what motivates and drives people, the better we may be able to take the Great News to them and get them to (get us!) to engage it.

    I’m always looking for book recommendations, so when I saw this blog post, I got super excited—it’s like a field day for me! There are some of these books that I’ve already read, but many others that I haven’t read—or even heard of! I can’t wait to dig in and get copies of some of these books. I know I’m sure to enjoy them.

    You the Leader - Phil Pringle I found really good as a leadership book
