The Imperfect Pastor by Zack Eswine
Rate this book
Clear rating
I cannot think of a pastor (of any tradition) who would not greatly benefit from reading this. I also think anyone who serves in a church (and isn't a pastor) would only need to change "pastor" out for "volunteer leader" or just "minister" would have ...more

You Are What You Love by James K.A. Smith
Rate this book
Clear rating
A summary of two of Smith's longer books (plus some updated material), this is a great articulation that who we are is due to our habits and that our habits shape what we love. Good discussion about the purpose of liturgy in the worship service, but ...more

Creation Regained by Albert M. Wolters
Rate this book
Clear rating
Accessible and deep - establishes a great articulation of the difference made by a worldview understanding Creation/Fall/Redemption/Glory categories. I recommend this.

“Speaking to people does not have the same personal intensity as listening to them. The question I put to myself is not 'How many people have you spoken to about Christ this week?' but 'How many people have you listened to in Christ this week?”
Eugene H. Peterson

“Self-actualization is what educated existence is all about. For members of the educated class, life is one long graduate school. When they die, God meets them at the gates of heaven, totes up how many fields of self-expression they have mastered, and then hands them a divine diploma and lets them in.”
David Brooks, Bobos in Paradise

“If the article mentions some celebrity-perhaps a recently dead politician-the author will want to mention some pointless detail from her last meeting with that person or the emotions she experienced when learning of the subject's death.”
David Brooks, Bobos in Paradise

Anne Lamott
“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“You can't really know God if you ignore his laws, especially the ones that regulate the most intimate spheres of life. You may be responsible and healthy, but you will also be shallow and inconsequential.”
David Brooks, Bobos in Paradise
