What I’m Reading to Start 2015

Confession: I’m an avid reader!  I wish I had more time to spend reading, but alas, I have to be very selective in how I spend my limited reading time.  I can also be a little bit ADD with books and jump between several at once.  I’m told that’s not the best thing to do, but it keeps me from getting bored and I think I actually read more this way.

Here are some books that I’ve started reading recently and will be reading in the early part of the new year.

1. The Black Swan Effect: A Response to Gender Hierarchy in the Church, edited by Felicity Dale with a host of contributing authors.  The role of women in the body of Christ and how men view and treat women have become increasingly important to me, being that I’m married and have a daughter, but mostly because I believe that Jesus desires freedom and equality for all.  Felicity Dale brings a wide compliment of men and women to address the subject.

2. The Overcoming Life, by Watchman Nee.  This is based on a series of messages Nee gave in 1935, and is a precursor to his classic book, The Normal Christian Life.

3. The Supplied Life, by Bill Freeman.  This is a daily devotional that I started reading late last year and plan to continue reading in 2015.  The focus is on drawing our daily life from Christ who supplies it, as a branch to a vine (John 15).  The daily writing is brief but dense.

4. The Truest Thing About You: Identity, Desire, and Why It All Matters, by David Lomas and D.R. Jacobson.  This book focuses on our identity in Christ.

    • It’s definitely a good one, Kalil. It’s out of print so you have to get a used copy. I got one in near mint condition from amazon for about $4.

  1. Hi Mark, these books sound great. In answer to your question, I’m currently still going between a number of books, and one is Watchman Nee’s Song of Songs (so rich it’s I’ve put it down for about 6 or more months after only getting half way through if that!). Not long ago I finished Watchman’s book Love Not The World – I really recommend this one. Another life changer!

    • Thanks, Donna! We read Song of Songs a few years ago as a church group. It’s really rich. I’ve started Love Not the World and have been carrying it around in my backpack for some time. It’s on the short list of books to read soon once I work through some of these.

  2. Dang dude. This is some heavy stuff! Hope you enjoy them :). Meanwhile, I’ll be entertaining myself with solitaire 😉
