Wicked by Gregory Maguire, because we loved the show. While the show was great for the family, the book is definitely adult fare. I am enjoying it. This is my “fun” reading.
Getting Things Done by David Allen. I’m not actively reading this but have it close by for reference as I try to apply the GTD principles to my life more seriously. The goal: Get things out of my head, so that I can have a “mind like water” that can choose the right action at any given time.
Exiles by Michael Frost, subtitled Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture. This book offers several important keys for the contextualization of the gospel in our culture. But I bet a lot of people reach for the book looking for evangelistic tricks, and put it down wondering, “Why is he talking about unfair tax breaks for corporations?” If you understand that the culture has changed and requires missionary methods, then you will understand the need for contextualization and how that will help you identify ways God is already at work in our culture.
So, what’s on your nightstand?
