Normally you wouldn’t put Bible Study, golf, art, and motorcycles together, but those are a few of the things I most enjoy. I love the Word of God and sharing the unsearchable riches of Christ with my people. I’m not a very good golfer and have learned to enjoy it in spite of my ineptitude. Art is another area in which my love exceeds my ability. I’ve done a few pieces that could never attain the standard I hold as to what constitutes "fine art". My Harley-Davidson is a 2001 Fatboy 1340 V-Twin, and I love to take it out on sunny days and on short trips. Listed below you’ll find my recommendations for of few of the resources that I know, use, and love.

On Being a Servant of God, by Warren W. Wiersbe I recommend that every believer read this book. Dr. Wiersbe shares with pastors and ministry leaders what he wishes he had known about ministering to others when he began his own Christian pilgrimage. He also gives perhaps the best definition of Christian ministry I've heard. Want to know what it is? Click the link below to get the book and find out...

In His Steps, by Charles Sheldon Originally published in 1896, this wonderful story that explains what it means to follow in the steps of Christ. It focuses on a church congregation upended by the challenge to live out a calendar year centered on one question: "What Would Jesus Do?" and later sparked the popularity of WWJD bracelets in the mid-90's.

The Knowledge of the Holy, by A.W. Tozer I have said before that if there was only one book besides the Bible that I could take with me to a deserted island, it would be Knowledge of the Holy. It is as inspiring as it is informative. Considered by many to be one of the great Christian classics, Knowledge of the Holy eloquently sets forth the majesty of God in his most glorious attributes. If you’re like me, you will come to treasure this work and will return to it, again and again, to feed your soul.

Knowing God, by J.I. Packer Consider this book by the late J.I. Packer as a systematic theology whereby he formulates an orderly presentation of the God of the Bible. Here you will discover the great difference between knowing about God and possessing true knowledge of him. I would consider this Packer’s greatest contribution to his spiritual legacy. If, as Tozer says, the most important thing about you is how you perceive God, then this book is a must read.

The Prodigal God, by Timothy Keller Timothy Keller is considered by some as a modern day C.S. Lewis. I would concur with that assessment. Having read most of what he has written, I can say that The Prodigal God is, hands down, my favorite. This is one of those books that opens your eyes to see your relationship to God in a brand new way. The Prodigal God will plunge you into the ocean of God’s love and immerse you in the depths of his grace such as you’ve never experienced.
