What I'm Reading Now

I'm almost finished with Andy Stanley's Visioneering. It is a really great book about vision-casting, leadership, leading through change, etc... It is actually a study of the OT book of Nehemiah and is very well done. Stanley is very no-nonsense, not overly spiritual, and extremely practical. Recommend to all leaders and any pastor wanting material for leadership training or sermon material on Nehemiah. Good stuff! (7/18/06, 4:28 pm - Just finished it. Great read! Still recommend.)

I'm almost half-way through Rob Bell's Velvet Elvis. This book is honestly the best book I've read in a long time. He's a bit of a philosopher, but he pulls it off in such a way that the average Joe can grasp it. Not to say it's simplistic - this book will definitely make you think. The chapter (or "movement" as he calls it) titled "Yoke" is worth the price of the book all by itself. This is a book that explores faith, tradition, and what it means to live out the Christian life. I think it would be very appealing to someone who is seeking, but at the same time it's extremely challenging for the long-time Christian, too. Definitely pick this one up!!! (7/20/06, 11:30 am - Finished it last night. I have two words to describe this book: AWE-SOME! This should be required reading for the human race!)
