Quick Takes

I had a desert day yesterday and finished off a couple books. Here are some quick takes on 3 books and 1 CD... Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church: Understanding a Movement and Its Implications -- This is the first well-reasoned response to Emergent movement that I've read. Of course, full-blooded "emergent types" wouldn't like it, but D.A. Carson, does a thorough, and in my perspective, fair job of taking postmodern Christians to task. Of course I'm don't agree with everything Carson says, but it really stimulated my thinking. To Become One -- I planned to read at least one book on marriage this year, I got this one free from RELEVANT. I hated it. In fact, I didn't even finish. It felt cliched and I had a hard time following the train of thought. It felt disjointed to me. The Five Temptations of a CEO -- I am officially now a Patrick Lencioni disciple. I've read all of his leadership fables. I'm a big fan of Patrick -- plus he's doing some consulting with our church, and so I've had some interaction, and I really like him. B Collision [David Crowder Band] -- this is a lot like The Lime CD -- with some live stuff, some rethought stuff, some remixes etc., except this one is heavy on the bluegrass. Or maybe it's bluegrass-meets-techno-meets-rock-meets...I don't know. My recommendation? Borrow it first -- you'll either love it or hate it.

Too bad I don't live back in P-Town that Crowder CD sounds simply amazing
