What books are you reading these days? What is encouraging you and challenging you?
Two biographies I recently finished:
High Adventure in Tibet: The Life and Labors of Pioneer Missionary Victor Plymire by David V. Plymire
David Wilkerson: The Cross, the Switchblade, and the Man Who Believed by Gary Wilkerson
I’ve read High Adventure in Tibet before, years ago, but then I had trouble locating a copy of it. They have it at CBD for $2.49. I found David Wilkerson while searching through the virtual “sale rack” at CBD. Really loved both these books and their honesty about the lives of these two heroes of the faith, albeit one well-known and one unsung.
And slowly working my way through this with a friend:
Intercessory Prayer: How God Can Use Your Prayers to Move Heaven and Earth by Dutch Sheets
What are you reading? I’m looking for good biographies of Christians in particular.
I haven’t read a biography in a while, but one of my favorites is “The Heavenly Man” by Brother Yun. What he experienced in the underground church in China describes modern parallels to Acts. It is inspiring to hear how political and social pressures actually have helped the gospel spread — and have challenged people to actually be willing to go to the cross for Christ’s sake. What would it look like for Christians (like me) to have that same amount of faith and zeal for the lost here in America?
