At the beginning of this year, I issued a 2015 Reading Challenge. The “Natasha’s Study” column is a space for sharing book reviews, having book discussions, and interviewing authors about their new projects. Since I am no longer attending seminary classes, it is one of my favorite posts to write each week. I love reviewing and reengaging content that I have read previously. I love hearing about what you are reading and learning.
I am still committed to finishing several books I began last year, but I have also taken this 2015 reading challenge for myself:
1 book for work
1 book for writing/teaching
1 book I want to read
1 book for learning
1 book about leadership
I am currently finishing up a novel. I cannot recall the last time I read a novel or any fictional book for that matter. This was a refreshing break. In February, I also completed reading a book to begin research for my next book project.
I am looking forward to reading the following books in March:
1 book for work: More than Equals: Racial Healing for the Sake of the Gospel by Spencer Perkins & Chris Rice
1 book for writing/teaching: The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer (This is one of my carry over reads from last year.)
1 book I want to read: Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More-Poet, Reformer, Abolitionist by Karen Swallow Prior
1 book for learning: Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible by E. Randolph Richards and Brandon J. O’Brien (This is another one of my carry over reads from last year.)
1 book about leadership: The Radical Disciple: Some Neglected Aspects of Our Calling by John Stott
What are you currently reading? Are you learning any new?
