Fall 2020 Booklist
I'm a big reader and I love reading other people's booklists so I thought I might have some suggestions to make as well. I'll go ahead and warn you that I read all kinds of types of books so this isn't like a top fiction list or a list of the best self-help books of the last year. In fact, you may not be interested in some of the titles at all but I'm always up for a new book to add in my queue so maybe you feel the same.

1. People of the Lie: The Hope For Healing Human Evil by M. Scott Peck
This recommmendation came to me after I had been studying and reading other books about manipulative personalities and narcissism. I can't stress enough how important I feel it is to better understand the research that has been done on these subjects. There are so many levels and categories of people who, by nature, without the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives, are manipulative and deceptive. Understanding the warning signs and red flags give us wisdom against the devices of the enemy. This book is so powerful in describing and explaining the relationship between the pshychological and spiritual when it comes to manipulation and deception.
2. Ekklesia: Rediscovering God's Instrument for Global Transformation by Ed Silvoso
I am so impressed and inspired by this book. Silvoso explains the power and anointing on marketplace ministry and it's role in accomplishing the mission of the church. I picked up this book merely out of curiousity after hearing Pastor Bill Johnson form Bethel, talk about it.
I have already recommended it to several people and I really feel like the concepts and approach Silvoso lays out in this book could revolutionize church leadership and effectiveness.
3. Lost In The Yellowstone by Truman Everts
This was a quick fascinating read. While watching the Ken Burns National Parks series, I was compelled to find this autobiographical account. Our family was gearing up for a camping trip and I read it to get in the spirit of things. It was a relaxing and unique break from my usual true crime stack of reads.
So what are you reading these days? I would love to hear your recommendations.
