Somehow I’ve become the recipient of a lot of free books lately.  Sometimes there is a letter attached asking me to "blog" about the book, other times it’s just a book from a publisher, and once in a while one just shows up on my desk from the book fairy.  I don’t know what the deal is, but to all the free book sending homies……  Thank you. 

Today, Craig Groeschel’s latest book Confessions of a Pastor showed up at my office.  Immediately the part on the cover that says, "I can’t stand a lot of Christians…" caught my eye and I just couldn’t help but open it and sure enough, I ended up getting sucked in.  Now I’m three or four chapters in and so far, so good!  I appreciate Craig’s honesty and authenticity. 

031027016201_aa240_sclzzzzzzz_Last week I read Mark Driscoll’s book, Confessions of a Reformission Rev.: Hard Lessons from an Emerging Missional Church.  (I just now realized that both books begin with "Confessions."  Hmmm…

Mark’s book was a good read.  Even though I didn’t necessarily agree with everything I read, I did appreciate his humor and sarcasm.  Man, is this guy funny!!  (Note: this book was given to me by a future blogging pastor…)

Anyway – that’s what’s going on in the book category.  I think it’s about time to jump into a historical novel before I hit my annual "ministry book" burnout festival.  Am I the only one?

    yeah, maybe pick up a copy of PEOPLE or US. :) Quality mindless reading.
    Kidding. Your historical novel looks fascinating.

  2. It’s not a historical novel, but I do have a book that I had previously read from your amazon list that I am dropping in the mail to you today as a thanks for passing on your Leadership article about transitions…it’ll help you refine your butchering skills before Thanksgiving!!! :) Hope you don’t mind reading a previously read book and I am sorry but the book jacket got tossed accidentally (why do they manufacture those anyway???).
