Oh and I have been fasting all media for eight weeks and it's been a joy and I do recommend it.
My reading was as follows and as to its fruit - well only time will tell:
Taking my God for a Walk: A wonderful tale of a man walking the Camino.
When breath becomes air: A moving and wonderfully written book about death and dying. It made me sob uncontrollably.
Conclave: A total page-turner on how you pick the Pope.
The Rosie Project: Light, funny and profound.
Joy Unspeakable: It is hard to sum up what this book has done in me and one of the reasons I can't is it's still in motion. Get this book, read this book and may it set you aflame.
Face to Face with God: I read this with Lloyd Jones and was struck how similar it was in parts.
Great Revivals: A taster book of where God has moved his hand through history.
Defining Moments: The stories of revivalists and what we can learn from them.
Living Forward: One quote in this prompted me to start writing a book.
Draw the Circle: A forty day journey of prayer which is worth the walk. Packed with interesting facts and perspectives.
The Shepherds Life: A wonderful book about being a shepherd by a shepherd. An immersion into beautiful writing and life in the Lakes.
Grace Outpouring: The account of what happens when you pray. This book tells the incredible story of the place I stayed in Wales. I can't recommend it highly enough. You should visit and then see what happens next.....
The Way of Blessing: I read this while I was in Wales and it follows right on with the story of what God is doing through Flald y Brenin.
The Revival We Need: Recommended by Roy Godwin and it cut me to the core. The impact of this book on my heart and soul is still under way. I will keep you posted.
Intercessor: I read this nearly thirty years ago and have revisited it after a visit to The Bible College of Wales. If Rees Howells has never crossed your path it's time he did. Astounding.
The blog has been very quiet but I am putting my toes in the water again. We'll see how it goes. The book I read over Christmas was one...
