What is so amazing about the world we live in is that we have easy and quick access to information available at the touch of a button!
I love to read and I love to buy books. But, for those of us who may not have a large amount of funds available to buy books, there are many great authors, pastors, leaders, etc. who write on a regular basis. And the bast part is this: you can read from them for free!
Here is a list of blogs that I read:
Big Is The New Small – Scott Williams has great insights on church, leadership, and culture.
Ed Stetzer – Ed is a pastor and a researcher with LifeWay research. He does tons of research and has incredibly valuable information about churches and about trends in culture, especially here in the U.S.
Seth Godin – He’s a genius. Enough said.
Doug Fields – Doug is one of the United States’ most experienced and well known youth pastors. He’s got incredible thoughts and resources.
Matthew Paul Turner – Also called “Jesus Needs New PR”. A great sight with interesting finds in the world of Christianity.
Michael Hyatt – A well known author who has worked in the publishing world. He writes a lot about that and about leadership in general. Great insights!
Jon Acuff – Also known as “Stuff Christians Like”. He. Is. Hilarious. Read it!
Tony Morgan Live – He writes on leadership, church marketing, church staffing, and more. Great thoughts!
Ragamuffin Soul – Carlos Whittaker has great insights into family, life, culture, church, and so much more. It’s a little bit of everything and a whole lot of good stuff!
Storyline Blog – Donald Miller (plus some friends) have some incredible posts on a variety of topics. He’s a great author, very creative, and has good insights into the creative and writing process. You’ll also find a post by my friend John Sowers there.
There’s a few more that I read…but if you haven’t read many before, the above list is a good beginning.
Let me know what you think!
