Some books on the way

Well, my Amazon addiction is still kicking...I just ordered the following books:

1. Through Painted Deserts : Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road. I love Don Miller's approach to spirituality. I met him briefly in Chapel Hill, he seemed so cool and down to earth, yet he has done some amazing things for the Kingdom of God. I love how he writes, and he really helps me connect with God and piece together some of my "outside the box" thinking.

2. I Am Not But I Know I AM: Welcome to the Story of God: Books. Honeslty, I feel like I've failed at everything I've done in my life...Not sure why, but it is what it is, yet I know God has purpose for all the failure. On the other hand, Louie Giglio seems to succeed at everything he touches...Wahba recommended this book, so I know it will be a good read.

3. The Barbarian Way : Unleash the Untamed Faith Within. Erwin always challenges me to live a life of faith and uncertainty. I know Erwin is now a famous pastor, speaker, communicator, author etc...But I also know that Erwin served in a small inner city Dallas church for close to 10 years.

As of now, it looks like I will be leaving for Seattle around April 1st. So, I really want to focus for the next four months on my spiritual life, making sure that I connect with God and that my walk with Him is strong...I think these books will enhance my thinking and challenge my life. If you have read any of these books, let me know your thoughts...Peace & love!

i read through painted deserts and totally dug it! it is a precursor to blue like jazz, so you finally get to meet people he references in that book. also it is about the road and travelling, which i have done a lot of and resonate with. i think the most outstading part for me was his take of God being all around us and his beauty in creation and how that draws him closer to God...hope ya dig it!

I read The Barbarian Way, it is really extreme, and I really liked it. Check out the review on my site
