As you may have noticed, I am an avid reader. I do this because “Leaders are Readers and Readers are Leaders” (Mark Batterson). I make time for it by reading on the go – I can read eBooks on my phone, iPad, or Kindle. Sometimes I reread the classics, but many of the books I am reading for the first time.
Here are 12 books I want to read in 2012, in no particular order:
Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books - Tony Reinke
Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus - Kyle Idleman
The Meaning of Marriage - Timothy Keller
From the Garden to the City - John Dyer
Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation - Ruth Haley Barton
A New Testament Biblical Theology - G. K. Beale
The Cross of Christ - John Stott (first time)
The Guns of August - Barbara Tuchman
The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien (first time)
Rumors of God - Darren Whitehead & Jon Tyson
Knowing God - J. I. Packer (reread)
The Circle Maker - Mark Batterson
Question: What book would you add to the list?
