My Favorite 8 Books

BookThis is a simple post, just a list of my 8 favorite (Christian, non-fiction) books of all time.




  1. The Holiness of God, by RC Sproul … An accessible treatment of God’s defining attribute.
  2. The Bondage of the Will, by Martin Luther … The classic Protestant work on “free will,” or lack-there-of.
  3. The Master Plan of Evangelism, by Robert Coleman … A clear presentation of Jesus’ evangelistic methodology.
  4. The Gospel of the Kingdom, by George Ladd … My favorite work on the Kingdom of God and eschatology.
  5. By His Grace and For His Glory, by Thomas Nettles … The book that “allowed” me to be reformed and Baptist.
  6. Desiring God, by John Piper … Piper’s classic volume on “Christian hedonism.”
  7. Knowing God, by JI Packer … A challenge to go beyond knowing “about” God and to actually “know” God.
  8. The Mortification of Sin, by John Owen … My favorite book about the battle of sanctification.

I’d love to hear what (Christian, non-fiction) books would top your list!
