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

The writings of Josephus

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
