What I’ve Read in 2015

What I’ve Read in 2015

Last year I challenged myself to catalog my reading (and become more intentional about my reading). I was able to read more and read for more purpose. Here is my 2014 reading.

In 2015, I decided to chart out much of my reading. I have a few places I wanted to develop my personal life and leadership. You can read about that process here.

I will use this post to catalog my 2015 reading. Feel free to ask any question in the comments. The link will take you to an Amazon purchase link if you are interested in the book.

My 2015 Reading

1. Simplify: Ten Practices to Unclutter your Soul by Bill Hybels.
Over Christmas my Dad gave me a couple of books he was reading and using for some sermon preparation. This was one of them. It scratched my productivity itch as well as spoke to my soul. This is a great book. For anyone who might raise an eyebrow at Hybels-this is the perfect entry book. I highly recommend it.

2. Strange Leadership: 40 Ways to Lead an Innovative Organization by Greg Atkinson
I first heard about this book from my friend Rich Birch over at the Unseminary podcast. Rich interviewed Greg and I immediately bought this book. Think of it as a modern Biblical theology of innovative leadership. It highly challenged me not to lead better (well actually it did)…but more so to fight for Jesus in my heart and to focus on following Jesus better.
