Books I’ve Read The Past 12 Months

Like I’ve said, I love to read and I love to learn. I’m going to assume that some of you do as well. I’m always looking for good books to read. I don’t read fiction, I just don’t want to make time for it. So, none of these are fiction. This isn’t exhaustive, but here is a list of books I’ve read the past 12 months. Just in case you were looking for something to read or to know what I’m up to, here you go! One more thing, Henri Nouwen is my favorite author.

Have you read any of these? Do you have any books to suggest?

    Hey JB, epic list, didn’t realize you were such a reader! I’m reading 2 leadership books right now that are 2 of the best I’ve read – H3 Leadership by Brad Limenick (directed the Catalyst ldshp conferences for past 10 or so years) & The Emotionally Healthy Leader by Pete Scazzero (I’m reading it with my staff right now). TEHL is kicking my butt but in a good way! Wish something like this was available when I started out in ministry. If you’re interested & send me a mailing address, I’ll send to your doorstep!
