Whether you're lounging on a beach, relaxing in a hammock, or enjoying some downtime, most people are looking for a good summer read. So we asked Pastor Mike Honeycutt for his recommendations from the books he has been reading recently. Each of these books is sure to be an informative read that will teach you, encourage you, and/or help you grow in your faith.
Timothy Keller: His Spiritual and Intellectual Formation
by Collin Hansen
Timothy Keller had a tremendous impact on the spiritual life of so many through his writings and teachings. This book is an excellent, well-written, fascinating summary of exactly what the subtitle says. I loved every minute of it.
Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book About A (Really) Big Problem
by Kevin DeYoung
Kevin has, in a truly short book, written some profoundly helpful ideas that can help us all in our busyness. Instead of searching for better time management tools, read this book to learn Biblical truths that attack the heart of the issue.
Get Real: Sharing Your Everyday Faith Every Day
by John S. Leonard
Our staff is currently reading and discussing this book together. It is such a refreshing book on evangelism that I recommend it to everyone.
Forgive: Why Should I and How Can I?
by Timothy Keller
As I’ve said recently about Tim Keller, he reads the best books on a subject, takes the best insights, adds his own twist, and produces the best-to-date book on the subject. That is true here, but he also helps you understand why our current cultural climate makes forgiving even more difficult than it normally is.
Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave: Finding Hope in the Power of the Gospel
by Edward T. Welch
You’ve probably heard at some point that “some people have an addictive personality.” The problem with that statement is that we all have an addictive personality in that all of us are given to idols. For some, it’s the more obvious—addiction to substances or some form of sexual addiction. For others, it may be an addiction to the approval of others (what the Bible calls “the fear of man”) or to work because of the need to perform or to be seen as achieving, etc. This book is for all of us as the author masterfully applies the gospel to our addictive tendencies.
