Books & Reviews

Each year I work through a Bible reading plan that will carry me through the entire Bible. Besides my reading of Scripture, I like to read books in 5 different categories – Personal Growth/Soul, Pastoral Ministry, Theology, Christian Biography and Fiction/Pleasure. Recently I have been listening to an audio book on my commute and while I work out. My goal is to complete 52 books in 2017.
