In 2007 I read a pile of books. I’m usually reading two or three at a time. I keep one by my bed, one on my desk, one in my briefcase and a couple in my office.
Here are the top 10 books I read in 2007, in random order.
The Corporate Blogging Book – Debbie Weil
The blogger’s bible.
When Crickets Cry – Charles Martin
Best novel I’ve read in a long long time.
Lone Survivor – Marcus Luttrell
True story. Don’t know if my non-American friends will appreciate this one, but I couldn’t put it down.
I Am America, And So Can You – Stephen Colbert
Made me laugh. And laugh. And laugh.
Simple Church – Thom Rainer & Eric Geiger
Probably the most helpful book ever written on doing church.
Natural Church Development – Christian Schwartz
Probably the most helpful book ever written on doing church, besides Simple Church and Breaking the Missional Code.
Confessions of a Reformissional Pastor – Mark Driscoll
Made me laugh, and wonder how he can get away with saying/writing things all pastors think, but are afraid to say.
Communicating for a Change – Andy Stanley
This one really helped my preaching – at least I think it did.
That’s my ’07 list. What are the best books you read in the past 12 months?
