>Whatcha Gonna Read This Year?

The figures are dismal…most adults don’t read. Ever. Some may read one book a year.

Yet books are powerful tools…if used. In the 14th century, writer, monk and bishop Richard de Bury said, “Books are masters who instruct us without words or anger, without bread or money. If you approach them, they are not asleep. If you seek them, they do not hide, if you blunder, they do not scold, if you are ignorant, they do not laugh at you.”

You don’t even have to plug a book in!

There are several great books located in my “carousel” to the left. If you need a recommendation, ask!

But remember…you’ll never “find” time to read; you need to make time to read.

And avoid the danger of reading books about the Book rather than the Book!

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

One thought on “>Whatcha Gonna Read This Year?”

  1. >A nice reminder for everyone. I still have yet to reach my goal of reading 100 books in a year. I’ll have to look at my list, but I think I read about 60 different books this year.
