I usually find a book to label “book of the year” during a calendar year but this time I have waited until now because I want to recommend a combination of books. Last year I read the The George Verwer Collection which is comprised of three previously published books. Verwer is the founder of OM and this was free for my kindle app. I’ve really been making good use of my Android phone on the bus and appreciate all the freebooks available. After finishing Verwer’s collection I was left wondering what a person is to do. His is a very challenging message but not exactly practical in leading one to the next personal step. Thankfully another free Kindle book was available. I began reading Dallas Willard’s Renovation of the Heart immediately after Verwer and found that it complements it nicely. Once you have read Verwer you know the problem with the world and yourself and Willard will help you to renovate your heart and prepare you for the next step in life and ministry. In other words don’t read one without the other!
