First, a question:

What are you reading? I ask because I love books, and am always on the lookout for new reads. So keep that question in mind for the comments, ok?

Now, since I’ve let you go first, allow me to make some recommendations for books that will knock your socks off:

In the category of “Best book about Jesus I’ve ever read” is:

John Eldredge’s Beautiful Outlaw. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Once you read it your view of Jesus will never be the same. Promise.

As a free plug, and if you’re at all interested in a closer walk with Jesus, I highly recommend you check out some of the resources on the Ransomed Heart webstore. Lifechanging.

In the “Best New Book About Sports and Jesus” category, we have:

My My Internet Name Rival’s new book, Love Thy Rival, about what sports’ greatest rivalries teach us about Jesus’ command to love our enemies.

Coincident with the release of this book, Chad has partnered with Samaritan’s Purse to build a clinic in Haiti. Check out the campaign, and support your team against its rival.

Last, but not least, in the category of “Best Book About Jesus and Zombies,” is Clay Morgan’s new book, Undead: Revived, Resuscitated, and Reborn. Professor Morgan has his finger firmly on the pulse of pop culture (well, technically zombies don’t have a pulse, and will eat you if you try to take it. But I digress), while being firmly rooted in history, and scripture. Don’t miss this book!

So there are three books I’m reading (expect full reviews in the coming days) right now. Again: what are you reading? Share in the comments.

  • Kingdom Journeys by Seth Barnes and Soul Detox by Craig Groeschel

    • Cool! I have Soul Detox. Need to dive into that one.

      Thanks for dropping by, Jon! How are things over in Stretched Land?

      • The world of Stretched is stretching as always. Blogging has been good, and life has been too busy. I’m trying to find the right balance. I want to be a KFCer (Kamikaze for Christ), but I first need to learn to be still and know that He is God.

  • Thanks Chad. Appreciate you reading Undead. I just bought Beautiful Outlaw after reading your thoughts here. I’m reading Adventures in Churchland now by Dan Kimball. Really liking it and about half way through.

    • My pleasure, Clay! Great book!

      Beautiful Outlaw is a paradigm-shifter for sure.

      Have to checkout Adventures in Church and.

  • Technically I’m reading a book…..totally blanking out on the name. It’s similar to The Screwtape Letters. I’m so busy right now, though, that I’m finding it difficult to read anything.
