The following sites have information on Christian books and other resources to help you support your Bible study. Remember that these are only tools to help you. We are called to discern for ourselves what is true by studying it and comparing it to the Bible.
The following links may be helpful in pursuing getting your own Christian material published.
Below are some books I personally recommend to help you on your journey to understand God and change your life to be more like He desires for us.
An Allegory for the Christian’s Journey Through Life
- The Pilgrim’s Progress, from this world, to that which is to come is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature, has been translated into more than 200 languages, and has never been out of print.
Studying the Case for Christianity as Truth
- Christianity on Trial, by W. Mark Lanier, explores whether or not the Christian faith holds up under scrutiny? What does science tell us about the plausibility of a god? Can we trust the alleged eyewitness testimony of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus?
- Has God Spoken? by Hank Hanegraaff provides compelling proof of the Bible’s divine inspiration.
- Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, by Nabeel Qureshi, describes a dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity including the friendships, experiences and investigation that led to conversion.
- Stealing From God: Why Atheists Need God To Make Their Case by Frank Turek shows how many atheistic arguments, instead of disproving God, reveal that He actually exists.
- The Facts on World Religions (Facts On Series) by John Ankerberg, John Weldon, & Dillon Burroughs) delivers informed viewpoints, insightful arguments, and a scripture-based Christian perspective on issues that impact our world. The series also includes other books like The Facts on Islam, The Facts on the Mormon Church, and The Facts on Jehovah’s Witnesses.
- The Third Day by Hank Hanegraaff examines factual evidences from the fatal torment and empty tomb to Christ’s appearances and transformation in a way that builds Christians’ confidence in sharing the truth of the gospel.
Drawing Near to God
- Radical Reliance, by Joseph M. Stowell. God alone can sustain and satisfy our souls. Do we know this reality? Do we thirst for it? When God is at the center of our lives 24/7, this is radical reliance – total trust – and it’s the way God meant it to be.
- The Pursuit of God, by A.W. Tozer. To have found God and still to pursue Him is a paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religious person, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart. Let A. W. Tozer’s pursuit of God spur you into a genuine hunger and thirst to truly know God. Consider also God’s Pursuit of Man and The Knowledge of the Holy.
- Transforming Grace, by Jerry Bridges leads us through a study of the grace of God in all it’s abundance and helps people to properly understand the relationship between grace and obedience to the laws of God.
Prayer and Hearing From God
- Experiencing God, by Henry and Richard Blackaby, is a modern classic that has sold millions of copies worldwide. Experiencing God is based on seven Scriptural realities that teach us how to develop a true relationship with the Creator. By understanding how God is working through us even as we try to fathom His ways, we can begin to clearly know how to relate to Him.
- Experiencing Prayer with Jesus, by Henry and Norman Blackaby, takes you into what many aren’t experiencing in their prayer life – intimacy with God. Experiencing Prayer with Jesus is not simply more information about prayer, but rather a leading into a life-changing encounter with Christ.
- Hearing God’s Voice, by Henry and Richard Blackaby, is for those who are ready to listen. Henry Blackaby and his son Richard help those who are listening to discern the voice of God, to identify ways He speaks, and to respond to His revelations of His will.
- The Invisible War, by Chip Ingram: Beneath our tangible landscape lurks an invisible spiritual realm where unseen battles rage. It’s real. And it’s dangerous. Remove the blinders and gaze into the unseen world. It’s going to be a journey inside the very folds of our Bibles, a journey that will teach us about our greatest foe, Satan. Although this lying thief comes to “steal, kill, and destroy,” God details in His Word the battle plan to uncover Satan’s cunning deceptions and to resist his sinister schemes.
- The Apocalypse Code, by Hank Hanegraaff: Breaking the code of the book of Revelation has become an international obsession. The result, according to Hank Hanegraaff, has been rampant misreading of Scripture, bad theology, and even bad politics and foreign policy. Hanegraaff argues that the key to understanding the last book of the Bible is the other sixty-five books of the Bible—not current events or recent history and certainly no any complicated charts.
Understanding Difficult Scripture
- Is God a Moral Monster? is an engaging read in which Dr. Paul Copan helps us to make sense of the Old Testament God.
Application for Daily Living
- Anger: Handling a Powerful Emotion In A Healthy Way, by Dr. Gary Chapman addresses the emotion of anger – what it is, where it comes from and how to handle it in a healthy, godly way.
- The 5 Love Languages, by Gary Chapman, shows us how to keep our marriage relationship fresh and growing amid the demands and conflicts and just plain boredom of everyday life.
- The Five Love Languages of Children, by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell, helps parents to learn how to show love in a way that each child understands… quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, physical touch.
- The Love Dare, by Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick, personally leads you through daily devotionals, records your thoughts and experiences, and ends each day daring you to perform a simple act of love for your spouse
