Books Books Books

I love reading! I read a lot. There have been many books that have impacted my life, and I want to share them with others. (Please note that inclusion here does not necessarily equate a blind acceptance of the entirety of the text and its position on various matters; it reflects my belief that the book has positively impacted my own life somehow, and may be beneficial to others!)

Sad to have to point this out, by the way, but in response to some questions I’ve had:

– no thanks, I am not interested in scanned and illegally distributed books.

I have arranged them roughly by the category of reader that I think would most benefit from the text, though this is my own opinion and certainly not meant to be authoritative! Some books may appear more than once as they fit more than one category. I will update this page from time to time!

For reference sake only I have included links to some online bookstores that, at the time of writing each individual book reference, sell the books in question.

  1. […] Where do we arrive at an understanding of these meanings? I am going to, over the next few days, attempt to point to some of the meanings behind Christmas. I cannot completely reveal it, nor would I wish to. As you read, I encourage you to pray and ask God the Father to cause the Holy Spirit to guide you in understanding His inspired Scriptures. I also encourage you to explore the Scriptures given, whether through reading other Bible translations or perhaps considering some of the books given in the recommended books list. […]
