Wooden Bookshelves


We don't have our own church building, but I would still like the opportunity to share books that I have found helpful, or that I am working through. Here, you can peruse my shelves electronically as I make recommendations to you.

Respectable Sins

By Jerry Bridges

This book will pierce you in places you didn't know existed, and fill you with the gospel in ways you didn't know you needed it. I've quoted from this book twice in my sermons.


Knowing God

By J. I. Packer

The whole book is great—a classic. Although, I must say chapter 19 ("Sons of God") was one of the most important chapters I've read in a long time. 


God is the Gospel

By John Piper

When I first read this, I completely changed the way I understand the gospel, and why it's so precious. If you're only going to read one book by Piper, this is it. 


It's All About Jesus

By Randy Alcorn

If you like quotes about Jesus, here's your book. Alcorn is known to read wide, and he shows it here. Quotes about Jesus are taken from a wide range of people—living and dead.


The Cross He Bore

By Frederick S Leahy

As Good Friday approaches, perhaps you'd enjoy this extended meditation on Christ's suffering. It's very, very moving.


A Quest for Godliness

By J. I. Packer

I'd particularly point out chapter 11, titled "Witness of the Spirit in Puritan Thought". This gave me much needed clarity on how Christian assurance relates to our faith.


Live like a Narnian

By Joe Rigney

If you love Lewis's Narnia books, then this book will teach you to breathe Narnian air. It's a great tool if you want to go deeper (perhaps, with your kids) into Narnia and learn about this world, from that world. 


Trinity Hymnal

Great Commission Publications

This is the hymnal we use in our services. It's not standard practice for a person to flip through a Hymnal these days—but, try it. It's edifying!
