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:
- Tabletalk Magazine from Ligonier Ministries.
- Truth for Life by Alistair Begg
