My Summer Reading Recommendations


Here are a few books I've been reading and would like to recommend to you for the coming summer:

1100608_jesusREADMy friend Ian Cron has written a beautiful memoir, Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me. More info here. Ian is a graceful and daring writer, and his story is moving on many levels.

1100608_practisingREADAnother 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.

1100608_liberateREADAnother 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.

1100608_nakedREADIf 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!
