15 Books

June 9, 2009 — Leave a comment


The latest “tagging” of notes on facebook is people sharing the 15 most influential books on their lives they can think of in 15 minutes.  I normally avoid things like this, but I was interested in some of my friends picks and decided to do it myself.  I thought for those that follow me here and not on facebook, I would share it here.  Here are the 15 books that will stick with me for the rest of my life (which I noticed afterward was more reflective of “books I’ve enjoyed after my first year out of college”):

1. Velvet Elvis – Rob Bell
2. Mere Christianity – C.S. Lewis
3. The Rise of the Creative Class – Richard Florida
4. Tribes – Seth Godin
5. The Shack – William Paul Young
6. Artist Management Manual – Jeremy Rwakaara
7. Worship Matters – Bob Kauflin
8. All You Need to Know About the Music Business – Donald Passman
9. Adventures in Missing the Point – Brian Mclaren and Tony Campolo
10. UnChristain – David Kinnaman
11. Wisdom for a Young CEO – David Berry
12. Jesus for President – Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw
13. How to Read the Bible for All It’s Worth – Gordon D. Fee
14. I Am America and So Can You – Stephen Colbert
15. When I Don’t Desire God How to Fight for Joy – John Piper

It’s interesting! You should do it too.  Here is a link to the conversation on facebook or you can comment here.  Recommendations welcomed!
