Top 10 Books

This list of books is not in any particular order and might change at any given time.  However, these books had significant impact on my life when I read them.

Desiring God by John Piper – When I read this book it was one of the deepest, most convicting books I had ever read.  It challenged me theologically and practically.

Power Through Prayer by E.M. Bounds – This is one of the first “grown up” books I ever completed.  It was one of the books that made me realize reading was worthwhile.

The Master Plan of Evangelism by Robert Coleman – Not only was reading this book a game changer for me, it was a wonderful gift to get to meet Robert Coleman in person during a significant study time of my doctoral work.

Jonathan Edwards on Revival – To not include a work of Jonathan Edwards in this list would be ridiculous.  While this is not necessarily his most significant work, it is profound in many ways.

Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God by J.I. Packer – This book helped me understand that the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man were not in opposition but instead were great friends.

Soul Winner by Charles Spurgeon – This book is my favorite of Spurgeon’s works and challenged me significantly in sharing the gospel.

Follow Me by David Platt – Of course Platt’s first book, Radical, was a thought to place on this list, however, I believe Follow Me was more thorough and enriching overall.

Let the Nations Be Glad by John Piper – Piper is the only author on here twice and while I hesitated to do that I was incredibly challenged by this book to see my responsibility to the nations.

Attributes of God by A.W. Pink – Having a bigger view of God has allowed me to understand my desperate need of Him.  This tiny book helped give me that big view.

The Insanity of God by Nik Ripken – Throughout the stories in this book I started even wondering if I was a Christian at all – not that I doubted my salvation but simply because the faith of these believers was convicting to me.
