I'm probably not the best person to be handing out book lists.
I like to think about reading. I like to read other people's reading lists. And I DO like to read....I just don't do it enough. But since a few people have recently asked about book recommendations, I thought I'd go ahead and compile a list of some of the things I'm hoping to read this year.
Slow Church: Cultivating Community in the Patient Way of Jesus by C. Christopher Smith, John Pattison
Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God's Will by Kevin DeYoung
Sentness: Six Postures of Missional Christians by Kim Hammond, Darren Cronshaw
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown
The Village Effect: Why Face-to-Face Contact Is Good for Our Health, Happiness, Learning, and Longevity by Susan Pinker
Deep and Wide by Andy Stanley
The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands by Lysa TerKeurst
Let's All Be Brave: Living Life with Everything You Have by Annie F. Downs
Jesus Prom by Jon Weece
I DID actually get a few books read in 2014. Here are some great ones I would recommend:
7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker
Interrupted: When Jesus Interrupts Your Comfortable Christianity by Jen Hatmaker
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: It's Impossible to Be Spiritually Mature, While Remaining Emotionally Immature by Peter Scazzero

The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller
What else should I add to my list? Feel free to leave a comment with your own recommendation!
