New Books in the Mail
I just ordered 3 books that I can’t wait to get and read. Here’s the rundown
The Way of the Wild Heart by John Eldridge. His books have been controversial theologically, but I liked Wild at Heart. I do like his emphasis on returning to Biblical masculinity, but I don’t like some of his views on church and church structure.
In a Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day, How to Survive and Thrive When Opportunity Roars by Mark Batterson. I can’t wait to read this one. Mark has a blog over at Evotional that I read regularly. The title of the book comes from 2 Samuel 23:20 -21. What Lions are you chasing in life?
Elders and Leaders by Gene Getz. I have read this book before, but I wanted to have my own copy. It is separated into two parts, the first is a Biblical study of eldership, and the second part is how that can be practically applied in a church today. He has put a wealth of knowledge and experience into this book. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested or working within the framework of an elder-led church.
Look for some new reviews in a few weeks.
