Together For The Gospel 2010

T4G Books

Ask anyone who attended last weeks gathering in Louisville, and one of the first things you’ll hear is wonder at the sheer quantity of books given to each participant. One reasonable guess I heard was that nearly $2 million dollars worth of books were given away. Those who attended the Band of Bloggers pre-session received another 12 books, so I returned with a total of 33 free books. I’m amazed that you can go to a conference where you are given gifts worth more than the conference fee.

Thanks to Justin Taylor, here is a nicely formatted list of he books from T4G with links to where they can be purchased:

And here is the list from Band of Bloggers:

Now all I have to do is figure out where I'm going to find time to read them. Like the Harris twins said at "Do Hard Things", to start something new you have to first figure out what you can stop doing.

Let me know if you want to borrow any of them.

Thanks for reading!

Pastor Michael
