Cure for the Common Life: Living in Your Sweet Spot by Max Lucado.
I chose to begin the reviews with this book because the content of the book is very closely related to the purpose of this web site: Helping people realize their God given purpose. Max Lucado has become a favorite Author of mine because of the ease of read yet full of useful information. When I read Lucado books I can't help but to learn something that helps improve my relationship with God.

Cure for the Common Life was written in 2005 but is still relevant today. In this book , Lucado takes you on a journey to discover who God has made you to be. You will discover your "sweet spot" in life. Your "sweet spot" is the feeling you get when you do what you were created to do. Lucado teaches in a way that only He can as you realize that you have a purpose. I recommend this book to everyone but especially to those who think there must be more to life. If your living a dull unfulfilling life you will find comfort and purpose in this Book.
Armchair Mystic: Easing Into Contemplative Prayer by Mark E. Thibodeaux, S.J.
Armchair Mystic is an important book to this website as well. This book is about Contemplative prayer. I read this book after I learned Contemplative prayer and it made a world of difference to me. I would not recommend reading it if you haven't gone through the contemplative prayer study in this web site. This book would be confusing and you will not understand the main points and understandings if you haven't practice contemplative style prayer. For those who have learned contemplative style prayer this is a must read. It is a personal journey through prayer helping you understand what you are experiencing and giving you pointers that will help enhance your experience. Armchair Mystic is an easy read yet very enlightening.
The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical by Shane Claiborne
The Irresistible Revolution is a great book. Shane Claiborne writes about his experiences as he searches for real faith and tries to live out the Christian life of Acts. While I don't agree with everything he writes, he does a great job of visualizing what the church of Acts would look like today. Be prepared to be taken out of your comfort zone but also be prepared to see Jesus as you read. If you read with an open mind prepared to stretch your faith you can't help but come away stronger and more alive.
If you haven't read The Shack you have to. This is one of those rare books that can change your life. While written as a fiction novel it will open the box that we all put God in. I would recommend this book to everyone. If you have lost a loved one especially if it was a tragic loss, you will find comfort and maybe even answer some of your questions. Young leads us along a journey of questioned faith to realizing who God is. This book will make you cry, laugh, and even leave you speechless but in the end you will want to talk to everyone about it.
Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado
Quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, Lucado hits another homerun with this book. Fearless tackles the one thing that keeps all of us from living a life of faith, fear. Fear is the thing that keeps us from taking that leap of faith and fear keeps us from living out our purpose. Lucado starts where you are and takes you through the corridors of fear so that you can step out into the light of faith. When I read this book I didn't realize how much fear has effected my life. While I still have fear, after reading this book fear no longer has me.
