Project Pastor Quarter Ep.#66
Scott and Troy discuss their favorite books of 2018. Scott even adds a great one for the "geeks, nerds and gamers" or for anyone who likes a fun novel. Here's a list with a description of each book. Trust For Today: By the Trueface Team This 365 day devotional from the Trueface team invites you to experience trust each day, from the mundane to the exceptional, from the deeply sad to hilarious. Touching on business, family, donuts, friendship and Adirondack chairs, Trust for Today invites you to grow in trust one day at a time. The Divine Conspiracy: Dallas Willard In this classic, one of the most brilliant Christian thinkers of our times and author of the acclaimed The Spirit of Disciplines, Dallas Willard, skillfully weaves together biblical teaching, popular culture, science, scholarship, and spiritual practice, revealing what it means to "apprentice" ourselves to Jesus. How to Think: Alan Jacobs How to Think is a contrarian treatise on why we’re not as good at thinking as we assume—but how recovering this lost art can rescue our inner lives from the chaos of modern life. Intimate Partners: Patterns in Love and Marriage: Maggie Scarf What goes on in our intimate attachments? What patterns of relationships do couples tend to follow, and why? The bonds we create affect every aspect of our lives, and yet our grasp of them is limited by our emotional reactions and learned responses. Now, in Intimate Partners, bestselling author Maggie Scarf gives us the classic book on marriage–on how love relationships are formed and how they change over the course of the marital cycle. Intimate Partners is a book that changes not only how we view love relationships, but also how we live them. Parables of Judgment: Robert Capon Quote from the book... “Grace doesn’t sell; you can hardly even give it away, because it works only for losers and no one wants to stand in their line. The world of winners will buy case lots of moral advice, grosses of guilt-edge prohibitions, skids of self-improvement techniques, and whole truckloads of transcendental hot air. But it will not buy free forgiveness because that threatens to let the riffraff into the Supper of the Lamb.” Scandalous Stories: A Sort of Commentary on Parables : by Daniel Emery Price, Erick Sorensen Parables are some of the most familiar stories in the Bible, yet their interpretations and applications are anything but uniform. Scandalous Stories is a "sort" of commentary on these familiar stories that are steeped in God's offensive grace and loving mercy for sinners and saints alike.
