Jerry Falwell frequently used to quote Charles E. Jones, saying, “Five years from now you’ll be the same person you are today except for the books you read and the people you meet.”

I’ve included a reading category in my major goals for 2009, which are broken down according to quarter. So, for April to June 2009, here is my list of books I’m trying to read:

Reading List April-June 2009

  • Communicating for a Change by Andy Stanley (Finished)
  • Unchristian by George Barna
  • After Fidel by Brian Latell
  • Axiom by Bill Hybels
  • Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi and Tahl Raz
  • Creating an Intimate Marriage by Jim Burns
  • Revisiting Relational Youth Ministry by Andrew Root
  • Youth Ministry 3.0 by Marko
  • The Labyrinth of Solitude by Octavio Paz
  • In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson
  • Killing Cockroaches by Tony Morgan
  • Tribes by Seth Godin

What are you reading? I’d love to get some suggestions for next quarter.
