I try to read as much as possible. Currently I am reading 4 books for ministry purposes. I read this much and this variety partly because of my undiagnosed A.D.D. (and by that I mean, my short attention span) and partly because I need things in smaller chunks in order to wrap my (little) brain around the concepts being discussed. Being involved in both children's and youth ministry, I try to read something for each one of those areas. I also try to read something that nourishes my own soul. All this to say, it got me thinking about what others might be reading that I am missing? So, here is what I am reading:
For children's / family ministry I am reading God, Marriage, and Family by Kostenberger.
For youth ministry I am reading How People Change by Lane / Tripp.
For personal growth I am reading both Dug Down Deep by Harris and Hurt Healer by Nolan.
Most of you, like me, have a backlog of books to be read. In my mind it doesn't hurt to have a few suggestions waiting for an opening. With that in mind, what are you reading and finding profitable for life and ministry? Feel free to share in the comment section.
