Love Does is a great book where you will find yourself entertained, inspired, and thinking deeply on God, grace, and what it really means to live the Christian life.

Lasting Impact is an amazing book for church leaders, but I recommend that you don’t just read it by yourself, read it with your team. It is one of those books that can help you see your blind spots and finally figure out what needs to happen in order for your church to grow.

Millions of people the world over are drowning in debt, this book The Total Money Makeover, and the amazing ministry of Dave Ramsey are the life preserver they need.  Bridget and I have taken and taught the class and are working the steps to finally find financial freedom, and we are loving the process along the way.

Timothy Keller is the CS Lewis of this era, I have read many of his books and have grown deeper in my personal faith. If you are one who has big questions and deep doubts about faith, The Reason for God is a great place to start. 

 90 Minutes in Heaven is a great book. I have been able to meet Don Piper and hear his story first hand and it is amazing, amazing enough to be made into a major motion picture and to take him all over the world to speak to millions of people about the hope we have in Heaven. Here’s a video of him speaking at LifePoint when we had our biggest crowd ever.

I am a huge fan of pretty much any sport, so if you are like me they you will know the name John Calipari. He has been the coach of Kentucky basketball since 2009. Players First delves into the secret of his success as a coach to some of the most talented athletes in the nation year after year. You don’t even need to be a basketball fan to enjoy this book and glean powerful lessons from one of the greats.
