When People are Big and God is Small – Edward T. Welch

The subtitle to this book is “Overcoming Peer Pressure, Codependency, and the Fear of Man.”  He does a good job of pointing out all the ways we can fear man and how it affects us.  Fear of man can show itself as sensitivity to peer pressure, the inability to say ‘no’, an obsession over self-esteem, […]

Crazy Love – Francis Chan

If you don’t like being made uncomfortable, don’t read this book.  Chan absolutely obliterates an easy-believism view of Christianity.  He takes on believers who try to simply fit God into their lives rather than making Him the center of all things.  There are great quotes from this book that will make you think long and […]

The Knowledge of the Holy – AW Tozer

Classic of the faith.  This should be in every believer’s library.  The book is NOT a quick read.  The concepts are enormously deep and you’ll be amazed at the level of insight and how one man can come up with such thoughts.  Definitely a book to re-read periodically.  His basic premise is that there is […]

The Prodigal God – Timothy Keller

Did you know that ‘prodigal’ does NOT mean ‘straying’ or ‘apostate’?  Prodigal actually means “spendthrift” or “foolishly generous.” The Prodigal Son was so-called because he blew his inheritance on partying and foolish living.  Hence the title of this book – our God is actually prodigal when it comes to us.  The neat part of this […]

The Reason for God – Timothy Keller

Keller does a really good job of laying out the apologetic for the existence of God.  As a believer you should read this book so you can give an account of what you believe and why (I Pet 3:15).  This is really a book that every non-believer should read, but it’s tough to get someone […]

A Praying Life – Paul E Miller

The best book on prayer I’ve ever read.  If you want inspiration toward a vibrant prayer life and a plan to achieve it, this is a book you must read.  And it’s a book to read multiple times over your life.  If you’re a parent, it’s a tremendous inspiration to praying for your kids.  Can’t […]

Money, Possessions and Eternity – Randy Alcorn

If you want a book that challenges EVERYTHING you think about money and want to be swayed from a western mindset, read this book.  I didn’t agree with everything in it, but it certainly makes you think and makes you evaluate why you do what you do.
