Calling All Bookworms!

Bob FranquizBooks

So many of you know that I'm a pretty voracious reader. I usually read about 150 books a year. But at the start of 2011 I decided to not read anything except the Bible for the 1st month of the year. So I read the New Testament for the 1st 40 days of 2011. 

But over the last couple of weeks I've been able to get through some good books on a variety of subjects. I hope you find something here that piques your curiosity.

Here's the last 5 books I've read: 

Unmarketing by Scott Stratten – I finished this book last night. I really enjoyed it. I was challenged by some of what he said. I really liked his idea that social media is more than Facebook and Twitter. It's whatever people are saying when they interact with our churches, ministries or organizations. 

The Questions Christians Hope No One will Ask by Mark Mittleberg – I loved this book. I loved how Mark tackled some tough questions like abortion, evolution, and the reliability of the Bible. But he answered the questions in a way that it helps the reader be confident, but not offensive in his position. Great book!

The 5 Love Needs of Men and Women by Gary and Barbara Rosburg – I read this book about 10 years ago and re-read it in preparation for our current series on marriage. I love how the book explains the needs men and women have, but the different ways we go about meeting the same need. Good stuff!

Rocking the Roles by Robert Lewis – This book gave a good explanation of the Biblical marriage roles. It wasn't the easiest book to get into at first, but the content was very good. If you're ever read any of Robert Lewis' books, you know he's a "go to" guy on the subject Biblical masculinity. 

The Blessed Marriage by Robert Morris – I am an uber-fan of his book 'The Blessed Life", so I picked up his book on marriage. It doesn't disappoint. It's no "The Blessed Life", but there's great marriage content to glean in this book. 


Happy Reading!
