Reading Plan: May 2008

I didn't do much reading in the month of April except to finish up some of my March reading and get started on some of this month's readings. But here's my plan for May:

I already know quite a bit about what Neil Cole has to say in this book since I heard him in person last fall. I'm fairly certain I will not like some of his ideas; I'm equally certain I will like many of them. And since the title of this book somewhat describes the kind of church I'm trying to start right now, I'm looking forward to reading all of it. I'm particularly interested in the Life Transformation Groups because I'm attempting to start something like that right now with the men in our core group.

The Reason for God is still on the NYT best seller list (currently #23). I have already started reading this one and love it. I'm hoping to do a book study with some non-Christians through this book in June, so I've offered some of them a $20 Barnes and Noble gift card if they will read the book and give me their reviews of it.

An account of one of the most severe child abuse cases in California history, this book is on my bookshelf and I would like to read it this month. It helps me in my reading to read different kinds of books. Plus, I have a hard time letting books take up shelf space and not ever be read.

I did not complete my reading of Augustine's Confessions in March and I didn't read any more of it in April. I am having a hard time with it, to be honest, but I am determined to make it through. Plus, I am still working through Jim Talley's book Reconcilable Differences.

On another note, there is one book that I started in March that I do not plan to finish. Focus or Failure failed to keep my attention. It is back on my bookshelf, and may not last there for very long.
