My Summer Reading Plans

Leave a comment

Summer is a great time for reading, whether it is on the backyard patio as the birds feast at the feeder or on a family vacation. This summer, I have several books, in a variety of genres (sports, leadership, culture, theology), that I plan to be reading. Here they are:

Bible Reading. My wife Tammy and I are reading through the Bible, a chapter at a time. As of this writing, we are in the book of Leviticus, using the Reformation Study Bible (English Standard Version).

Devotional Reading. This year, I’m using two resources for my daily devotional reading:

Book Clubs: I am reading through five books as part book clubs:

The Road to J.O.Y.: Leading with Faith, Playing with Purpose, Leaving a Legacy by Scott Drew

Beautiful People Don’t Just Happen: How God Redeems Regret, Hurt, and Fear in the Making of Better Humans by Scott Sauls

Get Up, Baby!: My Seven Decades With the St. Louis Cardinals by Mike Shannon

The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership: Follow Them and People Will Follow You (25th Anniversary Edition) by John Maxwell

Tell Me the Stories of Jesus by Albert Mohler

The Conviction to Lead (Revised and Expanded Edition) by Albert Mohler

Characters of Creation by Daniel Darling

These are the books I’m planning to read this summer? How about you? Please share what books you are planning to read.

Author: Bill Pence

I’m Bill Pence – married to my best friend Tammy, a graduate of Covenant Seminary, St. Louis Cardinals fan, formerly a manager at a Fortune 50 organization, and in leadership at my local church. I am a life-long learner and have a passion to help people develop, and to use their strengths to their fullest potential. I am an INTJ on Myers-Briggs, 3 on the Enneagram, my top five Strengthsfinder themes are: Belief, Responsibility, Learner, Harmony, and Achiever, and my two StandOut strength roles are Creator and Equalizer. My favorite book is the Bible, with Romans my favorite book of the Bible, and Colossians 3:23 and 2 Corinthians 5:21 being my favorite verses. Some of my other favorite books are The Holiness of God and Chosen by God by R.C. Sproul, and Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper. I enjoy music in a variety of genres, including modern hymns, Christian hip-hop and classic rock. My book Called to Lead: Living and Leading for Jesus in the Workplace and Tammy’s book Study, Savor and Share Scripture: Becoming What We Behold are available in paperback and Kindle editions on Amazon.
