Recommended Books


Only the Bible’s content is perfect.  All other books are limited. While I endorse the following books, please understanding that there are ideas in these books that I disagree with, and maybe you will as well. However, taking the Bible as the final authority in all matters, and using discernment, I have found these books to be particularly helpful. May God bless you with wisdom and discernment as you study.
