[amazon_image id=”B005EH36QE” link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]With: Reimagining the Way You Relate to God[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”B005EH36QE” target=”_blank” ]With: Reimagining the Way You Relate to God[/amazon_link]. 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:

[amazon_image id=”0781406900″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”0781406900″ target=”_blank” ]One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World[/amazon_link]. This is another great book by the author of Jesus+Nothing=Everything. I blogged about this book in the post, A Cautious Grace. If you want to dive deeper into grace, this is a good one, although much of the meat is in the first half.

[amazon_image id=”0310494877″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]How to Be Rich: It’s Not What You Have. It’s What You Do With What You Have.[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”0310494877″ target=”_blank” ]How to Be Rich: It’s Not What You Have. It’s What You Do With What You Have.[/amazon_link] This is not only a book, but a campaign Andy takes his church through each year. Take a look at what he does HERE. It’s a short read which has the power to alter our perspective on what it means to be rich and how the body of Christ has the power to wield incredible influence.

[amazon_image id=”1400205395″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]Jesus > Religion: Why He Is So Much Better Than Trying Harder, Doing More, and Being Good Enough[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”1400205395″ target=”_blank” ]Jesus > Religion: Why He Is So Much Better Than Trying Harder, Doing More, and Being Good Enough[/amazon_link] by Jefferson Bethke is a light and honest read on one man’s search to find relationship over rituals and religion. It will resonate with many areas you find yourself in.

[amazon_image id=”0307279189″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”0307279189″ target=”_blank” ]Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen[/amazon_link]. Christopher McDougall writes a New York Times bestselling account of ultra marathon runners. Woven in are some tips to make running more enjoyable and less painful for anyone. It actually works!

[amazon_image id=”0764211013″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]Mission Drift: The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities, and Churches[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”0764211013″ target=”_blank” ]Mission Drift: The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities, and Churches[/amazon_link] by Peter Greer is an interesting look at Christian organizations who have remained “Mission True” and some who have lost their way. I blogged on this with 7 Steps to Preventing Missions Drift.

[amazon_image id=”B00DW0I39U” link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]Fun Loving You: Enjoying Your Marriage in the Midst of the Grind[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”B00DW0I39U” target=”_blank” ]Fun Loving You: Enjoying Your Marriage in the Midst of the Grind[/amazon_link]. Ted Cunningham offers an easy to read, but challenging book to give your marriage a boost. This is best geared for couples who have been married for a bit and are desiring to rekindle the romance and carve out time in their hectic schedules for one another.

[amazon_image id=”B00ETGLPHI” link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]Grace-Based Parenting[/amazon_image]

[amazon_link id=”B00ETGLPHI” target=”_blank” ]Grace-Based Parenting[/amazon_link] by Tim Kimmel is the best book on parenting I’ve read. I read it on Kindle and bought a physical copy because I will be reviewing it often. Here are some of the thoughts from the book. If you have kids, I would highly recommend this book. But, even if you don’t, take the parenting tips and apply them to discipleship!
