Here is my confession: I have trouble communicating at a popular level. I often hear that speak over people's heads.
In an effort to remedy that situation, I am going to start reading more lay level books and less academia for awhile. I recently read one lay level book, and there were times I thought my head was going to explode. (But there were times it was really inspiring.)
I am very fond of John Ortberg and Chuck Swindoll on the lay level. Other than that, I can't really think of anyone.
Can you help me out? Who do you enjoy reading on a popular level?
