Simply Spirit-Filled

Simply Spirit-Filled (Nashville, TN: Emanate Books, 2019)

The Holy Spirit can sometimes be a complicated topic with many different answers. Andrew Gabriel, however, is able to navigate this discussion with wisdom and clarity. Even if you don’t come from a Pentecostal or charismatic background, Andrew’s book (Simply Spirit Filled) is able to invite you into a healthy conversation of skepticism, experience, and academia – you’ll never think of the Spirit’s activity the same again!

Didn’t See It Coming (Colorado Springs, CO: WaterBrook, 2018)

Didn’t See It Coming is by far the most highlighted and marked up book I’ve read this year! It’s not very often a book makes this kind of splash on so many leadership levels. In fact, no matter who you are, you will find wisdom in this book that will not only help you become a better person of influence for tomorrow but also better for the long haul. Even though we often live like we’ll see issues coming before we fall apart, Carey explains how sometimes it’s not that easy. This is your chance to see it coming before it’s too late – it’s certainly worth the read!


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.
