• Short Reviews – A Review of My Recent Reading List (2021 – 1st Qtr)

    On the right side of this blog, I provide my current reading list. Usually, the reading list (and these short reviews, relate directly to my strategy which is comprised of the acrostic LEARN.* However, I am in the process of developing and teaching some new classes (for me) as well as being in the process of “upgrading” my doctorate. Therefore, I continue to put my usual reading schedule on hold to focus on the books (and work) related to that process. And due to my schedule, I have not read as many books this quarter (and probably will not in the second quarter either, but hopefully I will return to…

    On the right side of this blog, I provide my current reading list. Usually, the reading list (and these short reviews, relate directly to my strategy of which is comprised of the acrostic LEARN.* However, I am currently in the process of “upgrading” my doctorate, and have put my usual reading schedule on hold to focus on the books (and work) related to that process. So, this review is based (mostly) on those books. Please note, this is not a formal review, but I will state if I recommend the read. My goal here is to simply provide a few key insights from each book. *See the recent series on…

  • Short Reviews – A Review of My Recent Reading List (2020 – 3rd Qtr)

    On the right side of this blog, I provide my current reading list. While I often read other books simultaneously, my goal each quarter is to read one book from each of the “steps” that help me fulfill my strategy which is comprised of the acrostic LEARN.* Therefore, I choose the books I read carefully because I want them to help me improve as a teacher, a pastor, a leader, and most importantly as a person. Thus, I rarely read books that are disappointing to me. However, some are more helpful than others, so I thought it might be helpful to share a few insights from my reading, in case…

  • Short Reviews – A Review of My 4th Quarter Reading of The City of God

    I took a reading detour during the 4th Quarter. I did finish a couple of books I intended to read, but rather than sticking to my list, I decided to finish a book I had started in early 2018. The book may be familiar to many (or at least some) who read this, but I had not taken the time to read it before now. The book is titled, The City of God, by Augustine. As I have said many times before, when you are a student, much of your reading is assigned. Being on the other side of the desk, so to speak, I can now choose my reading,…
