Bo’s Cafe: A Novel (Winnipeg, MB: Word Alive, 2009)

Every husband needs to read this book for one simple reason – to realize that our own personal journey affects those we lead. You may have never experienced the direct content of the book (and I hope you don’t), but the honesty and transparency of John Lynch’s writing will help you experience a world you don’t want to visit and encourage you to look to grace if you actually find yourself in the world of brokenness.

The Complete Book of Discipleship: On Being and Making Followers of Christ (Colorado Springs, CO: NavPress, 2006)

Bill Hull covers the topic of discipleship with very few stones unturned.  The best thing about this book is that it reads like a reference book.  You can read it cover to cover, or simply read sections at a time. That means, no matter where you stand among the ‘different levels of spiritual maturity,’ (p. 256) you will benefit from this book.
