Christian Book Summaries is a cool place, with a great mission and purpose, and they hit the target most of the time. With all the books there are to read, the readers and summarizers try to provide a helpful service of summarizing the essential thoughts and key themes of some of the major books addressing Christian living, thought, and action. (Not commentary or Bible reference oriented that I can see). They have a helpful notification service that lets you know when they have a new book summary available, and each summary can be printed out in an attractive format – especially if you download the pdf format.
So … now you can develop your thinking in less time. And you might even be able to make pithy, smart comments when hanging out with the pastors at church. This month’s summary is Shattered Dreams, by Larry Crabb. Many in my circles might find Running on Empty by Fil Anderson to be a lifesaver. I can’t discern a theological bent and some of the books would not make my recommended list due to viewpoint or theology. But it’s nice to be able to check them out without spending the money.
