Recommended Reading

As we seek to be a generation consumed with abandoned devotion to Jesus Christ, which is activated in participation in the global proclamation of the gospel, it is critical that we read books which help cultivate such realities.

We believe that “you become what you read.” This Reading Room is developed with this in mind. The following are some of the best books that are available.

Most of these will be available through Amazon — if you follow the Amazon links provided, a small portion of your purchase will go towards our ministry. Books whose copyrights have expired may also be available for free through online viewing.
