I’ve been getting a bunch of requests for book recommendations for the New Year.  I love that people want to read and learn about our awesome God! Below is a list of the 25 books that jump to my mind when I think of things that have shaped my life.  There is no particular order to this list and there are certainly many books that I could add (and probably should add and take a few others off). I do think though that this represents a pretty wide spectrum of authors, time periods, styles and subjects.  Whether you can go through this list this year, or if it will take you 10 years, I hope these books would help you grow in your understanding of God’s unchanging Scripture, causing you to love Him more deeply and live for Him more faithfully.

Happy Reading!

Pastor Jeff
