Whether on the beach, by the pool, or on a plane, don’t miss the chance to feed your mind a bit this summer with a good book.

Here are 10 books that I highly recommend:


1 • Winning the War in Your Mind by Craig Groeschell. 

This is a fantastic and understandable way to learn how to get a grip on your run away thoughts that lead to anxiety and depression.

2 • After I Believe by James Emery White. 

For anyone new to faith, this is a great guide in understanding what it means to be a Christian.

3 • The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Religion and Politics by Jonathan Haidt.

A fascinating dive into why we are so polarizing when it comes to our thoughts and actions over the last year. 

4 • Unhindered by John Walker and Charity Byers. 

Want to go to counseling… But do so in a book?  Read this!  It will explain most of your hurts, habits and hang ups. 

5 • Know What You’re For by Jeff Henderson. 

This is a masterclass in marketing, vision, and mission, written by a former exec at Chick Fil A.

6 • Win the Day by Mark Batterson. 

One of the most helpful and inspirational books of the last year.  Mark was recently a guest on my podcast, and he blew our minds. 

7 • With by Skye Jethani. 

This might be one of my favorite explanations of who God is and how we’ve messed it up, when it comes to our understanding of him.  Read this slowly and prayerfully.

8 • Think Again by Adam Grant.

Adam is a thought leader and Harvard Professor. This work on getting out of our think-holes is so good.

9 • Is this Anything? By Jerry Seinfeld. 

I know, I know, but he’s so funny. I promise you’ll love it. 

10 • Change Your World by John Maxwell. 

Maxwell has written about 700 books on leadership, but I think this is one of his best. Very practical and helpful, especially if you’ve never read Maxwell before. 

And just in case you hate to read, but would rather be read to… Let me do that for you! My new book After Amen: What to do When You’re Waiting on God is now available on Audible

Your Pastor,
