Some Book Reviews…

Here's a few brief book reviews of some books I've recently read…

Refuel – I'm a big fan of Doug Fields.  So I picked up Refuel because I loved the concept of the book.  The book was simple, but I was challenged by it.  The idea is, we're going to burn out if we don't regularly connect with God.  While it's not a formula for having a devotional time with God, he does lay out some practical stuff that was really helpful. Plus, it's a quick read.  

The Principle of the Path – This is Andy Stanley's new book.  Really good stuff.  There's a ton of practical wisdom here.  It's the kind of book you read and think, "Why couldn't I have read this book when I was 16?"  So buy one for yourself and every 16 year old you know :) 

Real Leaders don't Do Powerpoint – This was a great book on communication.  I want to continue to grow as a communicator, so I try to read everything I can on communication.  This book was really helpful and offered some great insights into better communication.  

I've been reading a lot this year.  My goal is to read 200 books this year.  So far, I'm on track to do it.  When my son is born in July I may have to resort to reading books that are 50 pages or less to reach my goal ­čÖé
