Recommended Books by Campus America

I had some great responses regarding non-leadership books for leaders. I will post the responses over the course of the next week. Stay tuned!

Our first posting is from Wendy Andrews, the national leader for Campus America/24-7 Prayer. She was kind enough to forward me their recommended reading list for students engaged in the prayer movement on the college campuses. I think there are definitely books that would be helpful for a Christian leader regardless of the context in which they operate.

Browse through the list below. Are there any books that surprise you? Are there any books that you would challenge or question regarding their usefulness or content? Have you read any of these recommended books by Campus America that significantly impacted your own life? Are there any that you're going to put on your "must read" list?

I would love to hear your response.

For the Cause,

Brian Francis Hume
