I‘m in the in between books space where I don‘t know what to read next. Planning to start this 450 page gut wrencher. Here we go...

Interesting and encouraging story about how the author went to HK to serve other in need in the name of God. Amazing stories of the drug and gang world at that time and miraculous transformations through faith in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

The Wild Truth | Carine McCandless
post image
Pickpick

Finished this wonderful book just now. I had known about it for quite a while. And owned it a while too. Now was the perfect time to read it and revisit the story of “Into the Wild” in a new way. Carine‘s story added so much and in many ways helped my own healing from trauma. Great book especially when paired with the previous book by Krakauer.

The Wild Truth | Carine McCandless
Pickpick

I‘m around 75% into this book and I am really enjoying it. It is definitely not what I expected and has been healing for me as I read because of my own childhood trauma. The book has brought me to tears at times and leads me to a spirit of overcoming hardships and moving forward. I read “Into the Wild” back when it first came out and was greatly impacted by it as well.

Newest Jack Reacher story by Lee Child. I have read them all (I think there are 23?). Quick 2 day read. Fun. Easy. Entertaining. I just bought Child‘s nonfiction book about what makes someone a hero character. I‘m interested to read his perspective.

Great book. It had been recommended to me by quite a few different people and in my other reading. I appreciated learning about Malcolm X and his personal journey through so much over not enough years.

Going through a box of old books and came across this old gem. Read this years ago but it is forever in my mind. Moving story of a young man that lives with passion and gave his life for the message of the Gospel.

This is a good book. It was hard for me to read at times because of my own history and personal bias. I learned many things through this and will continue thinking about it for a long time. It was very helpful in practical sorts of ways. It is good to read things that make me uncomfortable.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it to be engaging and interesting all the way through. I have read Gladwell‘s “Outliers” a while back and enjoyed that too. He does a great job of looking deeper at regular things and finding connections. He also presents the stories and information in a way that is very accessible.

Vivlio_Gnosi Looking forward to reading this! 4w

It‘s commonly said that Christians are not like Christ. It‘s true. He was perfect and loving and caring and He died for our sins and rose from the dead. His followers are called to be like Him and we often struggle. This book was a clear reminder of how Jesus loves and pursues us but we need to trust and surrender to Him.

Such a great story. I have read McDougall‘s other books and enjoyed them thoroughly. This was definitely different than the others but still incredible. Training a rescue donkey to run long distance foot races over mountains with his two other donkey friends? Yes! So many other heartwarming themes tied in to it as well. All around great read!

I appreciated this book very much because it taught me so much about things I didn‘t understand. It gave me so much more insight into a life I have never experienced. There were things I didn‘t necessarily agree with 100% but more than anything I am grateful for the author sharing her story.

rsteve388 I listened to this and it was such an important read for everyone who is doing anti-racist work. 2mo

I appreciated the simple (as in not complex) and straightforward nature of this book. I think it did a great job of presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the transformation that happens in us when we know the love of Christ.

Good book with much to say about living in an age of outrage. It was very thoughtful and research based. It has many helpful suggestions for application. It may have gotten a little long in the end. I pushed through and appreciated it overall.

Schnoebs Do you think this would be interesting to someone who doesn‘t actually practice Christianity? 2mo
Clint Good question, I think the author does a good job of looking at different sides of things and pointing out mistakes that all of us can make. I think it would present a good picture of how authentic followers of Christ are called to live like Jesus. 2mo

I enjoyed reading this book as it tells of the authors week long experience in the Himalayan mountains sharing the truth of Jesus Christ. It contains such heartbreaking examples of suffering in the world. I‘m encouraged to make changes to move toward more faithful living.

I thoroughly enjoyed this entire book. I kept waiting to get uncomfortable but as I was reading to learn I didn‘t get there much at all. I learned many things and will continue thinking about them. I liked how Bennett said, “You have to be uncomfortable to grow...if we feel uncomfortable we are doing something right”

At first glance I did not think this would be such a good book. I got it after one of those conversations you have where Google fills in some, but not all, of the blanks. I was intrigued enough to find and purchase this book. Now, after completion, I can say it was enjoyable to read, taught me much, and helped me appreciate our modern conveniences.

Great insight into his life and experiences. I am thankful for his service and his heart for helping other veterans.

I did not think I‘d have so much in common with Russell Brand. Due to his accent, I preferred listening to him read his own book to me more than reading my hard copy. He did go off on quite a few tangents that made absolutely no sense to me but he would eventually come back around to recovery. Enjoyable, practical, and helpful.

Sacred Thirst | M. Craig Barnes

Good book that I read with a pastor friend of mine. Reminded me that I thirst for something more than the world can offer. The Gospel is the only message with living water as it tells us of Jesus. In my thirst I wish to look to God instead of myself or anything else.

Somewhere in the earlier part of the book I complained about how it was about work so much. Then I saw the cover more clearly and realized work was a major focus. Overall there are other books by Brené Brown that I‘ve enjoyed more at that time but this one had a lot of good things to say and new skills to practice. I‘m very thankful for Brené and the work she is doing.

Letters to the Church | Francis Chan

I enjoyed reading this though I did get strong feelings of arrogance and assumption as Chan wrote. He tried to dispel that as he could but it still crept into his writing. It was thought provoking and challenging though hard to consider application.

CouronneDhiver I‘m curious. What kind of assumptions did you find bothersome? 1y
Clint The arguments he made assumed the reader was a certain way which seemed really simplistic. It sorta assumed that he had the best and most biblical approach and everyone else was a dullard. 1y

1. Paul Rudd and Chris Pratt—both seem normal and both are funny.
2. Yes thankfully!
3. Sit quietly (kids sleeping) while reading in bed.
4. I hate the initial scared feeling. After the scare I can deal with things (fight or flight!)
5. Sometimes but nothing too memorable.

It took me a little bit to get tuned into this one. Nearing the end now and loving it. Great illustration and helpful to think about how we can wrongly embrace sin or act wrongly when we denounce it too. Alternative is to know the love of Christ and drink from the Living Water!
