I have written several things in the past about books today I have complied a list of my top 10 must read books.
#10: The Indispensable Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson — Because sometime we just take ourselves to seriously.
#9: Five Languages of Love by Gary Chapman — Chapman identifies 5 ways we give and receive love. This is a must for all couples.
#8: Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Voirst — Why a kids book? Because some days are just like that.
#7: Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore— True story of what happens when the worlds of an art-dealer and a homeless man collide.
#6: How to Give Your Faith Away by Paul E. Little — Taught me that evangelism doesn’t have to be something that is difficult and that it can be a part of my ever day life.
#5: Search For Significance by Robert S. McGee — Helped me realize that my worth as a person is based upon what God thinks of me not others.
#4: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee — Lee’s Pulitzer winning portrayal of life in a small southern town during the depression. Oh the movie is also good but read the book first.
#3: The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning — Manning emphasizes the unfavored grace of God. Essentially we are all ragamuffins.
#2: Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges — First time I realized that my faith should effect my daily life.
#1:The Bible — If you have not read the entire Bible you should. Currently I am using the English Standard Version (ESV) translation.
Well, to all the readers out there is your turn. Compose your own list or put your response in the comments. I’m always looking for a good book to read.
