Reading List

OK, so I have a bunch of books I’ve been wanting to read, and never really take the time to read them. 
Most of the books I read tend to be more in the non-fiction realm these days.  Although I did decide to start reading Harry Potter last week and zipped through the book in like 3 or 4 days.  So now add the rest of those to my list, too.

I have a small pile of books I’ve started but not finished.
Church of Irresistable Influence.
Holy Discontent.
Breaking The Missional Code.
The Big Idea.
You know, the ones over to your left in the sidebar there.

Even with my list though, I get into moods or somethin where I see some books that I think would be helpful or interesting and I have to grab em, fully intending to slam through em.  My point?  Today I ordered 4 new books at Amazon.  Here’s what I got to bump up to the top of my "queue" today:


"First Impressions: Creating Wow Experiences In Your Church"
Mark L. Waltz


"Beyond the First Visit: The Complete Guide to Connecting Guests to Your Church"
Gary L. McIntosh


"Simply Strategic Volunteers: Empowering People For Ministry"
Tony Morgan


"Outflow: Outward-Focused Living in a Self-Focused World"
Steve Sjogren

I don’t know where I heard about the first one.  I found it written on a piece of paper while cleaning my office.  That’s what got me started.  The last one was recommended to me by my father-in-law who’s preparing to plant his second church.  The other two popped up at Amazon and sounded interesting.

I’ll let you know if they’re real good.
Anyone read any of these?  How are they?
