Book Reading Goal : Week 34

I have a huge amount of unread books on my book shelf. At present it appears I have a book arriving in the post every other day. In fact if I manage to read all of them, I would have finished my book reading goal! But not to get ahead of myself just yet. Still some way to go! This week I did manage to finish two small books (as in less than 300 pages combined). Both of them externally recommended.

The Pursuit of GodThe first was actually recommended by my young brother! I had managed to get a free book audio for it, listened to it and then read it. After reading The Pursuit of God by A W Tozer I now understand why it is regarded as a classic and a must read for every serious follower of Christ.

Preaching--Pure and SimpleThe second recommendation I have read is Preaching - Pure and Simple by Stuart Olyott. I have not yet started preaching but will do from January 2011. At present I am learning the ropes through attending monthly sessions on the same and sharing bible studies, etc at my local church. Its a book I strongly recommend for anyone who feel called to serve through expositional preaching.  I was delighted when I got to the end to find that another person who recommended the book was a fellow Zambian - a certain Pastor Moses Kasefu. Separately, I am hoping to meet the author at a lecture he'll present next week.
