These are several of my favorite and most useful reads over the years. Many of these books are close at hand, as I like to refer back to them for insight as things come up in my life and as I am ministering to others.
I wouldn’t include anything on this list unless I personally recommended it to someone, and it certainly doesn’t make the cut if it misrepresents or waters down the gospel.
If you’d like to recommend a good, Bible-based piece of literature, I’d be interested hearing about it!

Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
