The Christian Ministry
by Charles Bridges
Written in the 1800s, this book is as on target with its message as if it was written yesterday. It is a powerful treatise on the role and responsibilities of the minister of the Word of God. It ought to be a must-read for anyone considering the ministry or already in it. While not an easy read, it is a must-read.

There have been thousands of books written on the topic of prayer, but I can’t think of one that is more balanced, insightful and practical as this one. Prayer remains one of the most difficult aspects of the Christian faith for most believers. But it doesn’t have to be. This in-depth look at a very deep topic makes prayer accessible and approachable for all who are willing to make it a priority in their lives.
The Deep Things of God
by Fred Sanders
The Trinity. Most of us would say we believe in it, but have no idea how to explain it. Even fewer know what difference it makes in our everyday lives as believers. But there was a time when the doctrine of the Trinity was more than an academic topic. It had real-life implications for Christ-followers and was deeply linked to the Gospel message. Understanding the role of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the divine plan of our salvation, sanctification and ultimate glorification is essential to grasping its full implications.

If you’re looking for an easy read, this is not your book. But if you want to be pushed and prompted to think deeply about the topic of holiness, this could be just what you need. A collection of essays written by a host of individuals who are far smarter than I will ever be, this book explores the sometimes forgotten doctrine of sanctification. Rather than offering pat answers and simplistic opinions, this book will challenge your thinking and cause you to wrestle with one of the most important aspects of our Christian faith: our ongoing spiritual maturity.
