I’m a big believer that if you want to change the way you’re living, you first have to change the way you’re thinking. And the only real way to change the way you think is to change what you’re reading, watching and listening to.
In my office (and on my kindle – God’s gift to heavy readers), I have stacks of books I’m currently reading and anticipating reading. Here are three that I would suggest if you’re serious about changing the way you think…
One Of by Alex Absalom & Greg Nettle
Four words have brought about a fundamental shift in the way I approach every aspect of life and ministry. For. With. One. In. This FREE book delivers an incredibly simple concept that has potential shift your thinking about your relationships, your ministry and your role in the Kingdom.
Building A Discipling Culture by Mike Breen & Steve Cockram
If the One Of concept shifted my approach to life and ministry, Building A Discipling Culture has revolutionized the way I view discipleship and investing in future leaders. In it, you’ll be introduced to Lifeshapes, a brilliant approach to teaching spiritual formation to our very visual culture.
Jesus Creed by Scot McKnight
I’ve read about 1/3 of this book and can’t wait to read the rest! In Jesus Creed, McKnight delivers a very thoughtful, easy-to-read book on spiritual formation, beginning with the Great Commandment. If you haven’t picked it up, you should… Chapters 8 & 9 are worth the price of the book alone.
