I'm Not Sure I've Ever Done This...

I'm not sure that I've ever officially made a book recommendation here before. I've reviewed books, I've commented on them, I've even quit them. But I'm not sure I've ever gave one the official seal of approval.

Well I suppose there's a first time for everything.

I'd like to officially recommend this book:

I first read Henri Nouwen's In the Name of Jesus in the winter of 2000 while preparing for a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. And I think I read it three times that day. Yeah, the whole book. Three times. Now, it's only 81 pages long. But still...

If you're a Christian who's in a position of leadership or, moreover, just interested in a great way to think about relating to the world at large, read this book.

It's awesome...

Wild! I literally picked up that book (off the shelf of my library) yesterday. I determined it was NOT one to dump. Good call.
