The Presidents Club - A fascinating look at the most exclusive fraternity in the world - former presidents of the United States of America. Learned lots about the interactions between former presidents and what they did after they left office.
The Trellis and the Vine - A book that helped me see the significance of the church as a body of disciple-making disciples. Are we, together, about the work of seeing people transferred out of the kingdom of darkness and into his marvelous light; and are we helping one another transform more and more into the likeness of Christ? We should be!
The Art of Neighboring - Applying the 2nd greatest commandment to our literal neighbors - the ones who live next door to us. Useful, challenging stuff. (Picked this one up for free on my Kindle.)
The Bible - In 2012, I read all the way through the Bible. Chronologically. I didn't do the chronology myself, but found a plan that laid it out and found it a helpful way to read through the story of redemption.
Love Does - Pretty far outside my usual orbit, but I quite enjoyed it. Bob Goff tells stories from his life that demonstrate love in action. Didn't agree with everything I read, but was challenged to show love in the way I live.
Front Burner - The story of al-Qaeda's attack on the USS Cole as told by the ship's captain. All the more interesting to me because my brother-in-law was there.
The Holiness of God - R.C. Sproul's classic work on this important doctrine. (May have read part of this one in 2011...don't quite remember.)
I'd love to hear some of your favorite reads from 2012. Leave a comment here or on the facebook post and let us know!
