Top Books of 2014

Here, in no particular order, are the top books of 2014.

With: Reimagining the Way You Relate to God. I say these are in no particular order, but this book is far and away the best I have read this year. Counting the number of blog posts which drew inspiration from it illustrates this. Take a look at:

I’m posting on A Life Overseas today on the topic of Mission Drift. This discussion is based on the fantastic book, Mission Drift: The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities, and Churches, by Peter Greer which I highly recommend.

Peter Greer is the president of HOPE International, a global faith-based microfinance organization based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He recently spoke at the Catalyst Conference I attended.

Over at A Life Overseas, I recount what Missions Drift is as well as some qualities of a Mission True organization from the book.
