DYM Book Club: April picks

Another month means four new books to read for the DYM Book Club. One of our members suggested we’d look at what was available for free on Kindle unlimited and I thought that was a good suggestion.

If you haven’t heard of Kindle Unlimited, it’s Amazon’s ‘Kindle membership’ where one flat fee per month (it’s $9.99 right now) will allow you to borrow a bunch of books and read them. Not all books are available obviously, as a matter of fact I’ve found that not many bestsellers are included. But it’s a nice way to read more for little money. So this month, we’ll do two Kindle unlimited picks and two others.

In the category leadership, we’ll read Doubling Groups 2.0: How Andy Stanley and a whole generation of churches are exploding with doubling groups and the power of hospitality. which is technically not a leadership book, but speaks to youth pastors I think (haven’t read it yet). Our youth ministry pick is Youth Ministry in a Post-Christian World by Brock Morgan. I’ve just finished this book and it’s a challenging, inspiring read. Both these books are free with Kindle Unlimited.

For personal growth we’ll do The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out, written by Brennan Manning—which is a classic and one of the best books ever written about God’s love for us. And for young adult fiction, let’s read If I Stay by Gayle Foreman, which is still on the NY Times Bestseller List and has been made into a movie.

If you have any suggestions for great reads, head on over to the DYM Book Club Facebook Group and let us know!
