In 2011 (you should have noticed by now that I have something for dates), I decided to read one book every month. By the end of that year, I had read 7 books, including the Bible. I did better in 2012 and here I present the 12 books I read last year. There were months I didn’t read a book and some when I read 2 books to make up. You get the point. In no particular order, here they are:
Thinking for a Change by John C. Maxwell. This was the 1st book I read in 2012. John Maxwell contrasts various types of thinking.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. This was the most impressive book I read last year. Written in the early 90s, the content of the book is still as relevant today as ever. But unlike me, I hope you’d have enough discipline to follow through with the advice.
Winning keys in troubled times by Leke Sanusi. My pastor in RCCG, Victory House London. If you want to give your prayer life a lift, just read any of his books.
Battlefield of the mind by Joyce Meyer. For someone who went through a lot of negativity in her earlier life, if she has something to say about positive thinking, then you should listen.
Tongues: Beyond the Upper Room by Kenneth E. Hagin. If you are struggling with this “Tongues business”, this is the book for you. Do you have to tarry before receiving the Holy Ghost? Must every Holy Ghost filled Christian speak in tongues? Find out in this book.
How You can be led by the Spirit of God by Kenneth E. Hagin. Recommended to me; I read and liked it so much that I started buying and giving it out as gifts. Learn about the different ways God leads His children: Inward witness, The Inward Voice and Voice of the Holy Spirit.
Plans, Purposes and Pursuits by Kenneth E. Hagin. Would you believe that God never called Kenneth Hagin to be a pastor? He missed God’s plan for his life for 12 years. I read that and I’m like “Huh?? Even Kenneth Hagin?“. Here you’d also learn about God’s perfect will vs. His permissible will.
Eternal Judgement by Derek Prince. Hmm, this book. Got it from Seyi Feyisetan. Are you still unsure about how the world will wrap up? Did you know there are up to 7 judgements at the close of age? Look no further. This is the book for you. It’s part of a bigger book- Foundational Truths for Christian Living.
The Bible by The Holy Spirit. When the author of a book is your teacher, you have passed. I used a reading plan (Bible in one year) from YouVersion. Nothing can replace this Book in ones life.
Let me know the books that made your own 2012.
Food for thought:
How much investment do you make into study? Should you be doing more?
