Today we present 3 great reads if you’re looking for some ministry reading in the days ahead. Here are our 3 suggestions and a little explanation of why we’re pointing you that way:

BOOK 1: Renovation of the Church by Kent Carlson and Mike Lueken
Why should you read it? This book was recommended to me (Josh) by a friend and is hard to put into words. It was written by a couple of pastors who created a monster that became impossible to feed. They created a church of programs and flash and it grew big—to the point where it was an insatiable beast that pushed them to the breaking point while inflating their egos. A super-challenging read about the state of the modern church.

BOOK 2: You Lost Me by David Kinnaman
Why should you read it? This book is another attempt to explain the departure of students from church after their graduation from high school. Written by the same team behind UnChristian, looks super promising and hopeful. Next on my (Josh) “to read” list!
BOOK 3: The Naked Gospel by Andrew Farley
Why should you read it? Mostly because it will simultaneously frustrate you and free you! It was recommended by a friend of mine (Kurt), so I’m paying the favor forward.

This book is aggressive in its interpretation of the Gospel and grace, and it will probably cause you to pause a few times. I’m still not totally sure what to do with what I read…but I’m so glad I read it.
