Rob Bell’s newest Jesus Wants To Save Christians. I liked this one better than Sex God, but not as much as Velvet Elvis (I sound like American Bandstand… I’d give it a 5, but I can’t dance to it :). Great book to make me think about the boundaries of the church, our mission, and vision of the future. I particularly like some points about Jesus in Mankind’s story.
NT Wright’s Simply Christian is one of the best post-modern apologetics yet. Compelling, simple, and easily transferrable to the coffee house conversation – this one will stay on my short reading list for a while.
This book is a primer of Wright’s series Christian Origins and the Question of God – as it relates to issues of Jesus. It was very thoughtful, while maintaining a perspective consistent with a work of its size. A great “quick-read” that touches on some deep questions about how we follow Jesus in the here and now.
