A few more things . . .

I know that I posted a (really long) reflection with my thoughts on 9/11 on Sunday, but I wanted to come back to it for one more post.

Over the past 10 years, I have read some really amazing books about the events of 9/11. And more importantly about the way God has worked through the tragedy of 9/11.

I highly recommend them!!!

The Gospel and September 11 by David Platt
Pastor David Platt preached this message on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. It's a powerful message and will challenge you to look at biblical truth about God, suffering, tragedy, and the hope we have in Christ.

As the Towers Fell: Stories of Unshakable Faith on 9-11 by Lisa Chilson-Rose
This was written by my boss in New York City. Fantastic!

God @ Ground Zero by Ray Giunta and Lynda Rutledge Stephenson


God's Grace from Ground Zero: Seeking God's Heart for the Future of Our World by Jim Cymbala and Stephen Sorenson

Firehouse by David Halberstam
This book features the crew of FDNY Ladder 35 / Engine 40 and details the lives of the 11 men lost on 9/11. If you want to know what it was like, read this book. [Note: This is not a Christian book. It's been a while since I've read it, but I think the language may be pretty rough in a few places.]
