I get asked all the time what I am reading, and so I thought I would share with you the last few books that I have either just read, or am just in the midst of reading.

Enrique’s Journey: The Story of a Boy’s Dangerous Odyssey to Reunite with His Mother, by Sonia Nazario
The Gospel of Ruth, by Carolyn Custis James
No One Cares about Crazy People: The Chaos and Heartbreak of Mental Health in America, by Ron Powers
Welcoming Justice: God’s Movement Toward Community, by Charles Marsh and John Perkins
Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion and Truth in the Immigration Debate, by Matthew Soerens and Jenny Hwang Yang
Successful Leaders of the Bible, by Katara Washington Patton
