Books.

01/03/2011

I am a lover of books. I simply love to read. If my house was on fire, I’d make sure my wife escaped first, but then I’d go back for my Kindle and other books. I’m an addict. I set for myself a goal to read 50 books in 2010 and I met my goal by October. With that in mind, I want to take a second to review the top 10 books I read in 2010. I’ll cover the first 5 today and the top 5 later this week. I know that many of these books were released before 2010, but I compiled the list from books I read for the first time from January 1, 2010 until December 31st.

10 – Sticky Church – by Larry Osborne

Osborne’s book is a must read for those in church leadership. It is an Excellent book about helping people stick to their church through small groups.

9 – World War Z – by Max Brooks

I’m a huge fan of zombie fiction. I have actually considering writing a zombie book at some point. This novel by Brooks was beautiful and well written. I couldn’t have asked for more from a book about zombies eating brains.

8 – Plan B – by Pete Wilson

Often time life throws up curveballs. Things don’t work out like they should. We are forced to go with Plan B. That’s the message of this book. If you’re in the middle of a tough time in your life, go pick up this book.

7 – Churched – by Matthew Paul Turner

I grew up attending school at a fundamentalist Baptist church just like Turner. He writes this memoir with that experience in mind. He shares things that will make you cringe, cry, laugh, and almost wet your pants. It’s funny stuff.

6 – Fatherless Generation – by John Sowers

Sowers writes his book in an effort to encourage men to step up and mentor boys who are growing up without fathers. His book is short but powerful. The information is critical for anyone working with youth or anyone who simply has a heart for the next generation.
