Books That Have Helped Me On My Journey

These are just a few of the books that have influenced my life through the years and are currently impacting me. I point these particular books out because they have had the most impact, aside from the Bible, on my thought, life, and practice of the Christian faith.

Please check out my Amazon Store here. You might find something you like.

There have also been some great professors and pastors who have influenced my life and thought that have not written books, but are just as influential. I have included a partial list of them at the bottom of this list. I include them as a way to honor them and their influence.
