Summer Reading List

Leaders are learners; the moment you stop learning is also the moment you stop leading.

To that end, here’s a list of the books that I am currently reading while on a Staycation.
  • Deep & Wide by Andy Stanley — I originally read this amazing book when it first came out.  I had NO IDEA that Andy’s church was birthed out of a painful church split.  I find myself underlining new sentences this second time through the book with an additional ten years of leadership experience under my belt.

  • The Fate of the Apostles by Dr. Sean McDowell — I believe this book was McDowell’s doctorate thesis.  Very detailed, weaving together all the ancient writings and historical documents we have on the original Apostles and their deaths between 30 AD - circa 90 AD.

  • Improvise by Mick Napier — I was fortunate to study under Mick Napier in the late 1990’s as Mick was directing The Second City’s Paradigm Lost, an award-winning, ground-breaking improvised revue starring then-unknown comedians like Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Kevin Dorff (Conan), Rachel Dratch (SNL), and Tina Fey (SNL, 30 Rock).  I wrote about my experiences during this season of my life in my bestseller, Holy Shift.

  • The Satisfied Soul by John Piper — So, so good for my soul.

  • Mornings & Evenings by C.H. Spurgeon — Revisiting this old classic and being reminded again of just how big God is.

  • The Visual Word: Illustrated Outlines of the New Testament by Dr. Patrick Schreiner — Beautiful illustrations and fantastic summaries of each section of each New Testament narrative.  A great addition for personal Bible Study.

  • The Emotionally Healthy Leader by Pete Scazerro — This past year I have been seeking to grow into a more healthy spiritual leader.  Amber and I loved the original by Scazzero and can’t wait to feast more on these pages!
