With bible studies wrapping up in about a month, I have been thinking about what I want to spend the spring and summer reading when we aren’t in a study. Between the Bethlehem conference we were just at and some recent amazon purchases, here is my gathered list of books we have right now that I am looking forward to spending time reading out on the porch all spring and summer long as the temperature rises and the days get longer! Can’t wait! Enjoy!! 🙂
Spring + Summer Reading List!
Word-Filled Women’s Ministry – Loving and Serving The Church, By: Gloria Furman + Kathleen B. Nielson
Even Better Than Eden – Nine Ways the Bible’s Story Changes Everything About Your Story, By: Nancy Guthrie
Awe, By: Paul David Tripp
New Morning Mercies (have shared this before, but wanted to share this new limited design version of it if you’ve been eyeing it. This is such a great daily devotional), also By: Paul David Tripp
The Grand Design, Male and Female He Made Them, By: Owen Strachan + Gavin Peacock
Above All – The Gospel Is The Source Of The Church’s Renewal, By: JD Greear
**Additional Reads I have already read this summer/currently reading!:
Women of the Word, by Jen Wilkin – HAVE THIS BOOK, LOVE THIS BOOK, HAVE READ IT TWICE NOW! Such an amazing book if you are looking to grow in studying the bible. This book has been transformative for me!
None Like Him, by Jen Wilkin – Jen is my favorite women’s bible study teacher. Reading this book by her right now with two friends as a summer “study”, looking at 10 ways God is different than us, (and why that’s a good thing!)
A Time For Confidence, by Stephen Nichols – This was such a great read and SO timely in many ways. Taken from the Amazon website:
“As members of a society that is quickly abandoning its Christian past, followers of Christ often feel disoriented or even frightened. When human leaders and political advocates fail us, when immorality is celebrated and legislated as cultural renaissance, doubts arise and the road to compromise beckons. In this book, Dr. Stephen J. Nichols points to the almighty God as the steadfast source and foundation of our confidence. Though the Enemy “prowls around like a roaring lion” (1 Pet 5:8) and the whole world may shake around us, God’s kingdom is unshakable. This is not a time to cower, cave, or capitulate. This is a time for confidence, and our confidence must be in God. All else will disappoint.”
Such a timely read right? Definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for some new summer reads to finish up the summer!
