Life-long Learning Includes Reading the Best Books!
Here is my suggested Top 20 Book List…right now. I could have listed a lot more in each category, but these will keep you busy for a while. Some are classics; some are newer on my list.
I am not 100% in agreement with every word in every book. But I have found all of these to be informative, challenging and very helpful in causing me to think and consider new ways of “being” and living. These books are not all by Christian authors; don’t let that hinder your mining for gold here.
I have put these books under categories of life and growth that are important to me, and maybe you too. I try to read a new book in each category every year.
Check out Lifeschool Podcast Episode #109 where I give you my complete process for staying a lifelong learner.
