Well…I trust you are able to read more than ever before in these unprecedented times. This time of social distancing has created, for many, new space in our schedules for reading.
Here are this month’s recommended books for April.
The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek
Simon Sinek is always a good read. His books offer thought-provoking paradigms of healthy leadership practices. In his latest book, “The Infinite Game” Sinek asks the question: What does it mean to “win” as an organization and how is true success measured. With its focus on organizational health and long term sustainability, this book would helpful for business leaders and church leaders alike.
Christianity at a Crossroads: How the Second Century Shaped the Future of the Church by Michael Kruger
Genre: Church History
Few books have been written about the second-century church. Micahel Kruger does the church a tremendous service in this introduction to second-century Christianity. Kruger does an excellent job highlighting the cultural backdrop and theological development of the Christian faith. Highly readable. Highly informative.
From Chaos to Cosmos: Creation to New Creation by Sidney Greidanus
Genre: Biblical Theology
The Short Studies in Biblical Theology Series offers some fantastic insights into the broader discipline of biblical theology. Greidanus’ contribution is one of the best in this series I have read. If you are looking to stretch yourself theologically and deepen your understanding of the Bible-narrative this is an excellent starting point.
