Books, Books, Books

What books have changed your life, changed the way you think, the way you believe? Chadwick's post spurred me to these thoughts.

Of course I would have to say the Bible, first and foremost! It contains ALL we need for life and godliness. It has all the answers we need to our questions. But most of all, it tells us all God wants us to know, and all we need to know, to live lives glorifying to Him.

That being said, here goes:

1. The Bible
2. Knowing God by JI Packer
3. The Sovereignty of God by AW Pink
4. Revival by Martyn Lloyd-Jones
5. Gadsby's Hymns
6. Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God by JI Packer
7. Desiring God by John Piper

Kinda short, eh? I'll think of others later. What's on your list?

We have all of those on our shelf except Revival (we should get it, huh?) and Gadsby Hymns (though I'm familiar with the words of many of them). I've read 4 on your list. No wonder we get along so well. :) Miss you, Vivi. You remain on my Titus 2 role-model mental list of examples. :) And thanks for that.
How's Deborah Barker these days? do send me an update? I need to call.
