Here are a few books I've been reading and would like to recommend to you for the coming summer:
Another friend, Mark Scandrette, is releasing Practicing the Way of Jesus this month as well. I feel so much resonance with Mark -- not only what he writes, but what he does.
Another friend, Greg Fromholz, has produced a hybrid e-book so brimming with creativity I'm not sure it can just be called a book. Check it out: Liberate Eden.
If you haven't read any of my books, try Naked Spirituality. I know you'll find much of value in it this summer. And if you're not a reader, I think you'll enjoy the podcast series I produced on the Bible -- great for a long summer drive!
