beach reads

I have three books that I want to delve into in a week. They are very different books, but none of them really deal with church growth or any other seminary reading. Mclaren's book "Everything Must Change" is one that I have mentioned on here before. I haven't touched it in a week. It seems like it will get better soon. It is riddled with theory, systems and structures. More on this in my next post. He does bring up the major global crises of our day and believes that the ethic and example of Jesus will catalyze a solution.
The Shack is fiction. I haven't read a fiction book in years. (DaVinci Code was the last one I read) I just wanted something to get lost in. It's on the NewYork Times Bestseller List. I really don't know what it's about but it is supposed to have a Christian bent to it.
A Problem From Hell is a book I picked up about a year ago and just haven't had a chance to look at. It examines our country's foreign policy and suggests that we have had the exact same response to every worldwide happening of genocide...We have gotten our people out and let it happen. This is not a Christian book but it deals with some controversial moves that today's global empire has made. This will be an interesting read.
What is the best book you have ever read?
