The following books are rooted in biblical truth that genuinely cultivates deep spiritual growth.

We want to point you to resources that will help you effectively exalt the Savior in spirit and truth, use your spiritual gifts to edify His body, and grow in compassion to share the gospel with those without the hope of Christ.

What you read is crucial; what you choose not to read is also extremely important.  Don't poison the well.

"Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world" (I John 4:1).

We hope you will read with discernment, learning to "know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error" (I John 4:6).
