Peppermint-Filled Pinatas

I thought I would share some things I am reading during my time of spiritual renewal.

Reading through the Bible - Currently in Ezekiel
Andrew Murray on Prayer - Best author on prayer I have read (late 1800s to early 1900s).
Uprising by Erwin McManus - Focus on Character
Peppermint Filled Pinatas by Eric Bryant. - Awesome book about living a New Testament kind of faith in the world today.

I have to say I didn't expect much from Pinatas because it was from a staff pastor. What great book was ever written by someone other than the senior pastor? Forgive me Eric. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. If you want to be challenged to live out your faith in front of people who need Jesus, then this book is a must read. Eric shows real world examples of how you can have influence in the lives of lost people that will lead to life change; yours and theirs.

Here's a quote I like:
The majority of Jesus' most important moments in his ministry involved places away from the temple. . . For Jesus serving the Father meant getting involved in the lives of others.
