Books I hope to read in 2009

January 29, 2009

A little while ago, I wrote a blog post highlighting Tony Reinke’s excellent reading tips (read it here). I have taken his advice in selecting books I will try tackle this year – both his advice about choosing books, and his insight into how much reading one can do if they purposefully “capture” reading time. I also look forward to using his tips on reading critically, “with pen in hand.”

I will most likely end up altering this list somewhat (and quite significantly if I go back to school soon), but at this point in the game, I think these are the books I will aim to read this year. I’ve read a number of them before, but some books are well worth reading again! 

Here’s my list…

For Adult Small Groups (through end of summer, more for the rest of the year TBD):

For Youth Small Groups:

Various Aspects of Youth Ministry:


Preaching, Counseling, Pastoral Leadership:

Mercy Ministry:



Apologetics and Evangelism:

Getting More Organized and Efficient:


Christian Life/ Devotional:


*A sidenote: I’ve read a good chunk of about 10 of these books already, so the list is really not as daunting as it looks!  : )
