This will be new for the new people, but it will also be new for those of you who have been around awhile. For a few years, we’ve had “What’s On The Shelf?” where I let you know what I’ve read and enjoyed recently. I don’t usually put books on there that weren’t any good. But I thought we might try something different. I’m going to tell you what I’m about to read. Then if you want to, we can read it together. Maybe once a week, I’ll put up something for us to talk about in reference to the book. I’ll try to read slow like you guys. I know, I know, I don’t have anything better to do, but you have to work, etc. And it’s true. But I’ll try to set a reasonable pace. I don’t know if it will work, but we can try. We’ll start with a book I’m very excited about reading. It’s called “The Hole in the Gospel” by Richard Stearns. He started World Vision, which we have partnered with for a few years now. Anyway, I know this isn’t for everyone. But for those of you that would like to, we can try it out. Thanks.

That’s a cool idea, Todd! 🙂 Might not be able to join in on every book, but I’ll do it when I can!
One of your “focused” fellow readers here who does have a job, homework, etc, but I’ll give it a try. Since I live up here in the hinter-land, it may take me a little while to get ahold of a copy of this one.
Awesome idea. I won’t be able to join you for this one, but definitely the next… 🙂
Have an awesome week!
Just finished it…It is an excellent book. I’m glad you’re starting with that one! Looking forward to the conversation that ensues about it.
This is a great idea. I’m looking forward to that book as well.
Looking forward to seeing this progress.
Wow, I’ve been wanting to read this, so you’ve just given me an extra push.
Thank you for commenting on Rich Stearns’ new book, The Hole in Our Gospel. This book has already had a tremendous impact on many Christians. Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Church, just bought 10,000 copies of the book to give to his congregation. Hybels told his church, “This is one of the finest books I have ever read. It is my goal to get every member of Willow Creek Church to read it.”
And what a great idea to start an “online book club.” If you all are looking for additional resources and information, I suggest checking out http://www.theholeinourgospel.com. You can even download for free a study guide there that would generate some great discussion. I’d also encourage you to take some of your discussion online by joining the forum there. I encourage you to check it out!
You won’t regret reading the hole in our Gospel..one of the best books I’ve ever read. Enjoy!
