What Pastor Ryan Has Read This Year – 2019

Golly Gee Willikers, what has Pastor Ryan been reading lately? What has been stirring his mind? I’m so glad you asked!!! Below is a list of the 5 Books (besides the Bible) I’ve been reading lately.

1) The Problem of God by Mark Clark: I just finished it and absolutely loved this book. It’s a book about the questions that are brought against Christianity, and the answers to them. I loved his style of writing, found it very accessible and yet still meaty and deep. Highly recommend.

2) How to Be Interesting: (In 10 Simple Steps) byJessica Hagy: This was a really fun read, thought provoking. I don’t agree with everything she puts out there in the book but I did find the book inspiring. It’s a really fun and easy read, but be prepared to be challenged.

3) Finding Quiet by JP Moreland: This is a book about a professors struggle with anxiety and depression, and his journey with it. Really awesome book!

4) Christianity with Power by Charles Kraft: This is a deep book. The guy who wrote it was a missionary in Africa, and a missiology professor. He has deeply challenged me to open my eyes to how the state of our modern day church may be more impacted by atheist thinkers in the enlightenment than I’ve really known and how Christianity is meant to be a powerful and dynamic relationship with Jesus.

5) Waking the Dead by John Eldredge: John is one of my favorite writers and has very deeply ministered to my soul. This book has encouraged and inspired me. I’m not done with it yet, but I’ve been enjoying it immensely.

All of these books can be found on Amazon, and links are provided if you click on the title. I guarantee if you read them and have listened to my sermons over the past couple months you go – AH-HA! I caught you Pastor Ryan – he was reading this book when he wrote that sermon!!! You’ve been exposed!!!  Hahaha- You caught me!

Anyway, just thought I’d throw this fun little tidbit out there!

Have a great day everyone!
