Recommended Reading. Reading is essential to the Christian walk. Reading establishes rhythms in the life of a believer that deepens their relationship with God. Of course, the Bible should be the primary source for anyone seeking intimacy with Jesus. However, we also grow in our relationship with God through the thoughts and stories of others. This reading list changes from time to time; however, from classics to more contemporary works, these are some of my favorites:

  1. Pastor Brian, Im interested in if youve read “Radical” by David Platt, and if so your thoughts. It seems to go along with the parable of the rich young ruler.

  2. I have read or am in the process of reading five of those you have listed. I will need to look up the others! God bless you Brian. Thankful for your words of challenge and encouragement in your blog posts.
