I thought I would post the two books that most impacted my Christian walk in 2010, so here is the first, Radical by David Platt. This book knocked my socks off. Several moments while I journeyed through this book it brought me to complete silence......sit in a corner and stare at the wall kind of silence. David points the way back to the heart of what Jesus said, what He meant, and it answers the important question: What does God expect from me? Many times we puzzle over God's will and the answer is right there in front of us in Scripture.....we just don't want to do what it says. This book will impact your life, your walk with God, and challenge you to think differently about your responsibility to people in need.
The second one I just finished. It is One Heartbeat Away by Mark Cahill. This book was a perfect one to read after "Radical." The former took me outside the bounderies of my own comfortable little safe world, and this one took me back around to the person I meet right outside my door. The service person who works on your washer, the person on the plane next to you, your neighbor.....Mark brings us right to the heart of the big question: What lies on the other side of eternity and what happens when we die, and more importantly, if we know the answer to these questions, why aren't we telling others? Both books rest on the solid foundation of Scripture.
Two books, two questions.....
What does it mean to follow Jesus?
What happens after we take our last breath?
Read them both with an open heart, and I believe they will have a great impact on your life and challenge you to grow, they did that for me! Happy reading......Lori
