Recommended Resources

The following is a list of some of books and websites we recommend. Though the list is far from exhaustive, these are books that have helped us and shape the way we conceive of God, the gospel, the ministry of the church and the Christian life.  It is rare (probably impossible) to find a book in which you agree with literally everything (other than the Bible!), and this list is no exception. We consider these books to be very useful and important and solid, but this list should not be taken to imply that we are in complete agreement with literally everything in every book.
