book reviews

I’ve added a couple new book reviews to my readings page, including Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell and Planting Missional Churches by Ed Stetzer.  If there are any books you’d recommend I’d read and review, please comment below.  I plan to add upcoming reviews of the following books (as well as some others) that are currently on my reading list, but would be glad to work on others too:

Currently in process:
