Danny Akin has put together an expanded and updated list of books for building your theological library. This thing is a beast at 47 pages long, but we are all indebted to Dr. Akin for his diligence in this. I appreciate the quote below from his website.
Books are to the minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ what tools are to the carpenter: the essentials of the trade. A call to ministry is a … Continue reading

The list below can serve as a resource for any of you looking to study this book of OT prophecy. Some of you may also have some other resources you would recommend, please feel free to do so.

On this site, we have often lauded the values of reading and books. In fact, in my own life, I would definitely consider books and reading to be one of my great and favorite pastimes. With summer comes time for many of us to dig in and read on vacation and at other times. In fact, Al Mohler has posted his summer reading … Continue reading

Staff Your Church For Growth is a book that pastors should read early in their ministry because it gives great insights for the ways that staffs should … Continue reading
I heard and read alot about Why We’re Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be), long before I ever actually read the book. In all honesty, though I am interested in the subject matter (that of the Emergent Church Movement), I had my doubts that the book could live up to the hype.
