If you know anything about SH and I, then you know we’re lovers of a good read! We truly enjoy spending our free time getting lost in amazing books. And, with the summer holidays, days off of work and vacations in your future (or present day for some of us), SH and I wish to share a few of our favorite books, from our personal library, as recommendations to include in your summer reading list:
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
“A story of love that won’t let go – no matter what!” A real-life story of God’s unconditional, redeeming love for His people.
The Shack by William P. Young
“If you only read one book in the next year…read The Shack”. A true story, allowing you to see and experience God in a fresh, new way.
The Book of Proverbs by Solomon, wisemen, Agur and King Lemuel
From the ultimate Book. Old testament. Full of axioms of wisdom and virtue.
Character Makeover by Kate Brazelton and Shelley Leith
“Get the kind of makeover that will transform your life!” Focuses on character traits essential to living a purpose-filled life and becoming the best ‘you’ God intended you to be.
King’s Cross by Timothy Keller
“A vividly written and very moving presentation…” of the life of Christ through the Gospel of Mark.
Fearless by Max Lucado
“…showing us that a peace filled and courageous life IS possible~with God!” Imagine your life without fear.
Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick
Pastor Furtick uses the story of Joshua…”to activate your audacious faith. To inspire you to ask God for the impossible. And in the process, to reconnect you with your God-sized purpose and potential.”
A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
“…reveals that we can all create miracles by accepting God and by expressing love in our lives.” Understand the facets of the Bible’s definitions of ‘love’.
The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis
A candid exploration of the possibilities and problems of the four basic kinds of human love. “Immensely worthwhile for its simplicity…a rare and memorable book”
We pray that you thoroughly enjoy these listed above. And, as you do and if you have previously read any of them, please share your thoughts with us! How did they speak to you? What did you learn?
“So I commend the enjoyment of life…” Ecclesiastes 8:15
