Books, Blogs, & Bargains

Books:

This week I want to share with you a couple of books that I’m looking forward to reading and I think are definitely worth checking out.

2Q==The first book is Brimstone: The Art and Act of Holy Nonjudgment by Hugh Halter. I’ve read a couple of Hugh Halter’s books and believe that there is a lot of wisdom in what he has to say. Looking at the description of this book, I believe that this is a well timed book that we need to take to heart. The world is a crazy place, and I believe we need a little more love and a little less judgment from the church.

Smaller Listening Life CoverThe second book is The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction by Adam S. McHugh. His previous book introverts in the church had a big impact on me when I read it, and again I believe that this is another book that followers of Christ need read. To often we speak before we take the chance to listen. McHugh asks, “How would our lives change if we approached every experience with the intention of listening first?” I think that’s a great question worth exploring.

Blogs:

From Relavant Magazine: Internet Outrage, Public Shaming and Modern-Day Pharisees. I was just having a conversation the other day about how angry and how much we are on the social media and then this popped up on Facebook. We need to bring some more positivity in a world of negativity.

From Jon Acuff: Please stop telling me you’re too busy. One of the biggest excuses in our culture is probably business, when in fact we could probably give up a few hours of Netflix each week to achieve something more meaningful. I know I could.
