Here are the books I have read in the past month.
Christ-Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Sermon by Bryan Chapell
At the Oxygen conference I had the amazing privilege of hearing Bryan Chapell both preach and lecture about preaching. I read half this book before the conference and half after it and it is brilliant. I would say it is the best preaching book I have ever read. Chapell’s emphasis on preaching grace is what sets this book apart for me although his advice on sermon structure, applications and illustrations are brilliant. If you are a beginning preacher, have never read a book about preaching or you haven’t read on in a while. Get this book. It has solid gold on ever page.
The Holiness of God by R.C Sproul
How would you describe God? Sproul argues that we cannot know God apart from his holiness and he shows this by not only taking us to scripture but by explaining theology so clearly and memorably. This is a very encouraging and mind blowing read. It”s a great book to give out at church to anyone who comes or a great book to read in a reading group. It will enlarge your picture of God and will make you see the depths of the gospel in a new a beautiful light.
Grover trained men like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Dwayne Wade and this book is the program that he uses to train them and other basketball superstars. It also has a lot of motivational material as well as advice on nutrition and recovery. The workout is broken up into three stages and the first stage is a killer. A great workout for anyone who plays basketball or any sport where explosiveness is required.
