Books I Love

Here’s a list of books that I love and I hope that you’ll love them too. I have no financial interest in any of the books or other resources that I recommend on this site.

Theology and Christian Living

Book - Glorious mess

Glorious mess
by Mike Howerton

Mike is a glorious mess. I know because I identified with so many of the same silly mistakes and struggles that Mike has experienced. You’ll be uplifted, you’ll laugh out loud, but most importantly you’ll get solid biblical guidance. For example, Mike’s discussion about the importance of obedience is the best I’ve ever read or heard.This book was a delight to read and has earned a spot on the top of my most favorite Christian books list.

Book - Parables

Parables: The Mysteries of God’s Kingdom Revealed Through the Stories Jesus Told
by John F. MacArthur

Understanding the parables of Jesus is a great way to learn the gospel. As Pastor John MacArthur puts it, “a parable is an earthly story with a spiritual meaning”. The thing I love about parables is that they illustrate the gospel in a way that is most helpful for visual learners like myself. Through the book Pastor MacArthur works though a number of different parables whiles incorporating the culture and surrounding people and themes into every chapter. This increases your understanding far beyond what you could achieve by just reading the parables directly from the bible without the supplemental information that the author brings to bear.

Book - Hpergrace

Hyper-Grace: Exposing the Dangers of the Modern Grace Message
by Michael L. Brown

Learn how the glorious truth of grace being polluted by errors, leading to backsliding, compromise, and even the abandonment of faith.

Book - Clean

Did you know that 50% of Christian men struggle with porn addiction? Just imagine how wide spread it must be among secular men. This book, coupled with a lot of prayer, will help you break free of this addiction.

Word plus Life

Word + Life : 20 Reflections on Prayer, the Christian Life, and the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ
by Kevin Halloran

I’ve been following Kevin Halloran’s blog for a while now, and have come to know his writing as being biblically sound, thought provoking, insightful, and concise. His eBook, is the best of his best writings. It’s a short book, so one could gulp it down in one sitting if they so choose to, but I think you’ll get the greatest benefit from it by treating it as a daily devotional, where you read a short chapter and then meditate on what you’ve learned. You can also use each of the 20 chapters of the book as a personal or group bible study. However you choose to use it, if you’re anything like me you’ll want to keep it handy so you can read it over and over.

Book - The Questions Christains Hope No One Will Ask

Book - Cold Case Christianity

Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels
by J. Warner Wallace

Mr. Wallace is a cold case homicide detective and Christian apologist. He also hosts the website and podcast. As an atheist, he studied the scriptures using the same techniques he would use as a cold case detective. He became a Christian as a result.I highly recommend it to everyone, regardless of where they are in their spiritual life.

Book - Who is Jesus Really

Who is Jesus Really?: A Dialogue on God, Man, and Grace (The Coffee House Chronicles)
by Josh McDowell and Dave Sterrett

The facts of Christ’s historicity, resurrection, and that he claimed to be God are all proven by both the bible as well as plenty of sources outside of the bible. All of this is woven into an engaging story-line about a group of Christians who have coffee shop conversations with atheists. I learned a lot and it was an enjoyable read that I couldn’t put down.
