We all know the bad parts of 2020, bu it wasn’t all bad! Throughout the year, I regularly found encouragement, inspiration, and intellectual stimulation from the books I read.
August was a crazy month, so you’ll notice these books tended to be a little shorter. The one exception is the Packer biography, which I split between July and August. As always, if you have something good for me to add to my reading list, leave me a comment!
July brought me some excellent books, including one in particular that I’ll be going back to for years to come.
You’ll notice a theme in this month’s reading – engaging the next generation. They’re already your co-worker and before you realize it, they’ll be your boss too. Take time to learn what has shaped them, how they think, and how to get along with people who see the world differently. If you have great resources on getting to know iGen, leave me a comment!
How do we guard the gospel, contend for sound doctrine, avoid quarreling, and earnestly pursue unity in the church, all at the same time? It’s a tall order, and it’s the principle objective of Gavin Ortlund’s new book, Finding the Right Hills to Die On: The Case for Theological Triage.
God brought me several books in April that I hope you’ll enjoy. Leave a comment with one you plan to read, or one that you think I should read!
We’re all figuring out what life in an indefinite quarantine looks like. I thought I’d have more free time, but I’m not sure I actually do. Rather, COVID-19 is helping me re-assess how I spend my time, and hopefully be a better steward of it.
Did you set any goals for 2020? After two months, are you on target to achieve them? One of my goals for 2020 was to recommit myself to reading widely. My February reading ended up being heavy in leadership material.
January was a good reading month for me! Not only did I complete three books, all three are books that I highly recommend to others.
