The Rescue: Seven People, Seven Amazing Stories… by Jim Cymbala
Always great to be reminded of the power of the Gospel to transform. Jim Cymbala shares seven great testimonies of God’s power to save.
The Deepest South of All: True Stories from Natchez, Mississippi by Richard Grant
I’ve always loved Natchez. This book goes deep into some of the stories, scars, and scabs of the last 200 years. Didn’t know that Natchez voted against succession from the union. Didn’t know that there was an African warrior prince enslaved in Natchez for 40 years. Get to know the bitter and sweet story of a favorite southern town.
Dream with Me: Race, Love, and the Struggle We Must Win by John M. Perkins
Compelling book on reconciliation and racial justice. Refreshing to hear the gospel driven worldview on racism and its solution from a true man of God who spent his life in the trenches of the civil rights movement.
Problems of Christian Leadership by John R.W. Stott
From a series of lectures John Stott gave to ministerial students. Stott shared from personal experience of the every day challenges of a life in ministry. Short book. Worth reading every year.
Why You Think the Way You Do: The Story of Western Worldviews from Rome to Home by Glenn S. Sunshine
Great summary of worldviews through time from a Christian perspective. Became acquainted with Sunshine after reading The Kingdom Unleashed. This book is academic in nature. But accessible.
