    Spiritual Parenting is what I am reading right now.

    Next up is Building Faith at Home

      I’m a big advocate of Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Ted Tripp along those lines.

        I will have to look into that!

        I just looked at the reviews–I am not sure it would be a fit for me,but I am always interested in reading things, even if I don’t totally agree with them.

        I was never spanked as a child, my parents used other techniques that were successful with me and my siblings. As a child development professional,while I respect parents choices (as long as it is with a hand only), I can’t be a proponent of spanking. Children need tools and techniques to manage themselves.

        Yet, those are my personal beliefs and each person needs to form their own. I am just saying why that book may not be a good fit for me.

    I am currently reading “Next Generation Leader” by Andy Stanley.

      It’s got some good stuff. I read it as part of a church planter internship a while back.

    – “Chosen By God” RC Sproul
    – “Recapturing the Wesleys’ Vision” Paul Chilcote
    – “A Peculiar People” Rodney Clapp
    – I’m also re-reading “Blue Like Jazz”… I wanted to remember why I liked it so much in college

      RC Sproul is advanced reading. He thinks on such a high level.

        I grew up in a Methodist church (I still work at one) and never heard an unbiased explanation of predestination. I asked a Calvinist friend to suggest something for me to get a feel for it and he picked “Chosen by God”.

        Also, I just watched the book trailer for “Radical” from your review. I’m pretty stoked about reading it now. I like David Platt a lot.

          I served as a youth pastor in a UMC church long before I knew the difference between Arminian and Calvinist. But every time someone tried to explain the difference, I found myself siding with the Reformed perspective.

          Good on you for being willing to at least take an unbiased look at a different perspective.

          Look for a Radical giveaway here soon!

    Also, what do you think of “Radical”? I just ordered it a few days ago.

    • 11 March 2011 at 7:49 am

      I really like it. Platt’s got some strong points and he doesn’t pull many punches.

    • 11 March 2011 at 5:25 pm
