Following is a list of books that are helpful to the Christian and which edify the church. In addition to the ones listed below, please see the pastor’s blog where he lists the most influential books that have impacted him.
Holy Land Bible Atlas, Thomas Brisco
On Being a Theologian of the Cross, Geerhard Forde
God, Heaven, Har Magedon, Meredith G. Kline
Christless Christianity, Michael Horton
Desiring God, John Piper
The Glory of Christ, John Owen
The King James Only Controversy, James White — this book gives a good overview of the ancient manuscripts of the Bible and then shows how the 1611 King James translators did not have access to all the best data. To that end, see the list of newer Bible translations below.
Why Johnny Can’t Preach, T. David Gordon
Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis
Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan
English Bibles Translations:
Holman Standard Bible; this Bible version is especially good in how it translates the Old Testament Hebrew, whereas the work done with the New Testament books does not consistently reflect the same quality.
