I am still working on this list and will add links....pardon my construction....

The following is a list of resources I have found helpful and encouraging in my life. By posting this list, I do not pretend to have superior Biblical discretion as far as recommending Biblically accurate resources, as I only  graduated from a Bible college with a minor in Biblical studies. I have simply found these authors have good things to say that applied to me.

I may not agree with everything these authors promote, as I tend to believe no single person has complete, 100% correct theology or application. I must examine scripture for myself, letting no other lead me blindly in my faith. I follow Christ and Christ alone.

If an author causes me to hunger for God's Word more, that's good. If an author encourages me to obey God's Word, that's good. But the Word of God must be the final word.

This is not a comprehensive list, just a collection of books that I have read and have felt confident in recommending, one friend to another.
