Good Books

that should be in every believer's library...
or at least on your "to read" list!

Are you looking for good books to read, but are not sure which ones are worth reading? You don’t want to waste precious time reading books unless they are doctrinally sound and spiritually edifying. Here is a suggested reading list. Of course, reading good, Christians books should never be a substitute for reading THE BOOK, God’s Holy Word, the Bible.

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. (Psalm 138:2)
