I’ve shared my fiction reading lists with you guys before, so this time I thought I’d share my non-fiction reading list. 🙂
This is my current, non-fiction reading list:
1.) The Dawning of Indestructible Joy: Daily Readings for Advent by John Piper
The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel’s coming—the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity.
This is the greatest of history’s many wonders, something too stupendous to celebrate just on one day. Advent is a way of lengthening and intensifying the joy of Christmas.
These 25 brief devotional readings from John Piper begin on December 1 and carry us to Christmas Day. Our hope is that God would use these meditations to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus and help you keep him at the center of your Christmas season. -Book Description from Amazon
“The fears that the few good things that make you happy are slipping through your fingers, and the frustrations that the bad things you hate about yourself or your situation can’t be changed—these fears and these frustrations are what Christmas came to destroy.” – John Piper, The Dawning of Indestructible Joy: Daily Readings for Advent
2.) 5 Secrets of Story Structure: How to Write a Novel That Stands Out (Helping Writers Become Authors Book 6) by K.M. Weiland
If you’ve read all the books on story structure and concluded there has to be more to it than just three acts and a couple of plot points, then you’re absolutely right! It’s time to notch up your writing education from “basic” to “black belt.” Internationally published author K.M. Weiland shares five “secret” techniques of advanced story structure.
In the multi-award-winning Structuring Your Novel, Weiland showed writers how to use a strong three-act structure to build a story with the greatest possible impact on readers. Now it’s time to take that knowledge to the next level. -Book description from Amazon
“If there’s just one thing that matters to your success as a writer, it’s story structure. Story structure is what allows authors to create stories that work every single time. Story structure is what allows you to quickly diagnose and remedy plot problems.” -K.M. Weiland
3.) from “Pearl Harbor to Golgotha” by MITSUO FUCHIDA
A biography of the commander of the first air fleet of the Japanese Imperial Navy, who led the attack on Pearl Harbor, and his subsequent conversion to Christianity and a life of peace.-Book description from Amazon
“I remember the thrill that was mine when, in one of my first meetings, I led my first soul to Christ in America. And he was one of my own countrymen.”
― Mitsuo Fuchida
