I almost bought that book yesterday, but picked up an autobiography of George Mueller instead.

A couple of years ago I read an autobiography of Muller by Roger Steer. Is that the one you read?

Muller was an amazing man of prayer.

I read Girl Meets God, by Lauren Winner a few years ago.  Loved it.  I should look for more of her stuff.
Over the weekend I read The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne.  I want to read it again... a bit more slowly.

Just got back from the library with N.T. Wright's The Last Word and Simply Christian.  I'm hoping to go next month to a workshop he's speaking at.

Muller was an amazing man of prayer.

Then why would he have his autobiography "ghost written"? ::pondering::

I never read much of that last book I posted.

Yesterday I got a box of books in the mail.

These are 2 I'm planning to read:

Coffeehouse Theology: Reflecting God in Everyday Life,  by Ed Cyzewski

Henri Nouwen and Soul Care, A Ministry of Integration, by Wil Hernandez

Discusses Nouwen's life as both an imperfect integration and yet and understanding of wholeness as an integration of theology, psychology, and ministry, with spirituality as a connecting and integrating approach. Nouwen, according to Hernandez, lived and sought to see the whole person, the complete human being, as the focus of spirituality.

Hernandez further argues that Nouwen understood soul care, or spiritual direction as complete only if they considered all three aspects of life when approaching people to care for them. It is important for Hernandez, and presumably for Nouwen, that we understand our jobs not as healers (not everyone can be healed - physically, emotionally, or spiritually), but we can care for everyone. Healing apparently, is God's job; ours is to care for souls (read: complete people).

I hear that's the good book.

I think I am somewhere amid my 14th or 15th time through, I've lost track.

The new paradigm for financial markets by George Soros. Interesting take on the transition to globalization. The cause and effect of central banking and the false beliefs that lead to market extremes.

The Last Days by Scott Westerfield (or something like that--a kid at school keeps loaning me books by this guy, and they're quick reads.)

A strange facts of WWII book I got for Christmas.

Ephesians, out of a NKJV study Bible (a loaner).  Studying for a class I'm teaching.

Also re-reading some related material.

Spiritual Warfare by Derek Prince; I think its a bit over my head with the scripture stuff, and he has some interesting veiws on there being three Heavens. I'm about 4 chapters in and its a rather small book. But its interesting.

No he says that Satan lives in one, when we die we got to the second, and God rules the other. Basically he is saying that Satan has an army of demon/angels in the first its kinda confusing I don't know if I believe it but that's what it says.

I read the Bible daily and hope to finish reading it all the way through within the next couple of months.  It'll be the 14th or 15th time I've read it from start to finish.

I'm also starting out this new year reading "Fit for Life, A New Beginning" by Harvey Diamond.  What this author says makes so much sense.  Now if physicians and hospitals would just get with the program and follow his lead, more people would be a lot healthier.  He is against poisoning our bodies with drugs, chemo, radiation, etc.  and is for detoxifying and preventive measures to stay healthy.  I'm not to the part yet where he gives a diet plan or the detoxifying instructions, but from what I've read so far, it should be a positive thing instead of the dangerous methods promoted by pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, etc.   He states that every drug has side effects, and I agree.   His approach of using natural methods to stay healthy is one that I believe I can adhere to more than popping pills and feeling miserable due to their toxicity.   ::treadmill::  He also advocates walking, which is the best form of exercise that does not require purchasing expensive exercise equipment.  You can do it almost anywhere.

I'm getting ready to read "Night" by Elie Wiesel in preparation for teaching it.  88 would probably like to read it as well.

Aside from the Scriptures, I am also reading "Fellowship of the Burning Heart". It is a collection of sermons by A.W. Tozer. I also just finished Tozer's book, "The Pursuit of God", which I highly recommend to everyone and anyone who names the name of Christ. It is a definite "must read".

Mudhouse Sabbath, Lauren Winner - excellent little book from an ex-Jewish, now Christian woman. She provides observations about how Jewish life and values can add depth and meaning to often overlooked faith practices.

I was not able to get the new Ann Coulter book "Guilty" yet.  So I started reading "Tortured for CHRIST" by Richard Wurmbrand.  I got it through the Voice of the Martyrs newsletter.

I just started "American Lion" by Jon Meacham.  I've disliked Jackson for some time because of his treatment of the Indians, but have to admit that he preserved the Union for a little while and was largely responsible for keeping Jefferson's vision alive.  This should be an interesting book.

I should read it.  Have you read Tortured for his Faith by Haralan Popov?  My copy is 1970 I think.  It is quite old and autographed by the author.  Your post has got me thinking of re-reading Popov's book.  In fact, I should google him.
Richard Wurmbrand...I wonder what the similiarities are between these two?

I had a 25% off coupon, so I picked up "Blue Parakeet" by Scot McKnight while I was snowbound at the mall today (long story--basically I went to school before finding out it was cancelled, a heavier-than-expected snow hit, and I decided to wait it out). Looks interesting.  I may read it and put Andy on the back burner.

Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond. It's pretty good so far. Gary might like his discussion about Montana.

I liked his prior book, Guns, Germs, and Steel.

Nice little book. Every professional (or yearning professional) clergy type should read it.

In the Name of Jesus, Henri Nouwen. Nouwen's comments on leadership for the new century.

Nice short book on the challenges of being relevant in today's world. Recommends we try to become irrelevant and rather simply become present and healing for others. No chasing the lights, no wanting to be on the speakers' circuit, no wanting to head a twenty-person ministry staff. Just being available for people.
