Here’s a list of the titles I ordered today.
I’ll be reading them rather quickly (I hope) – the fall semester starts at Fuller in September, and I’m pretty sure I won’t have much reading time after that (besides what I’ll be reading for class).
Anyway, here’s what’s coming in the mail to me as of today:
I’m looking forward to diggin in to these titles.
Speaking of digging in, I just finished reading It: How Churches and Leaders Can Get It and Keep It by Craig Groeschel.
Zondervan does a great job marketing their products, but they disappointed me with It – I didn’t care for this book. No, I’m not going to right a full review of It, either. Here are a couple of quick thoughts:

Okay … enough of that …
I’m currently reading the daily devotional guide that goes along with Lead Like Jesus, and have also gotten a little ways into Wide Awake by Erwin McManus. They’re both good so far.
By the way – thanks to everyone who contributed to the Apologetics Resource List.
Once I digest these new books and get some faith building studies on paper, I’ll share them with everyone.
Thanks for reading 🙂
I’m going to spend time over the course of the next couple of months perusing the best apologetics resources out there.
Here in San Francisco, many of those I study the Bible with don’t have a basic belief in God, a trust in the Bible, or an awareness of, or belief in, core Christian doctrines.
I would like to prepare myself as well as possible for any encounters with people God may send, and would also like to be able to teach other church members to do the same.
Here are a few questions I’m interested in designing studies for:
Here are a few resources I already own that I’ll be diving into:
Here are a few of good websites I’m aware of:
Here are a few additional books I’m planning to pick up:
And here are a few resource lists from TheResurgence.com:
Am I leaving anything out? If you know of a good resource please let me know.
In other news, remember that finger I slammed in the bathroom door? That injury has born fruit:
A new nail is growing underneath the old one! This is the weirdest thing that has ever happened to a fingernail of mine.
Just thought I’d share … I know you needed to see that. :p
