    I am a self confessed book addict. :D I wonder what books we could recommend to any new Christians who might come to the board, even if they are not members but browsing I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of books we would recommend to our more recent brothers and sisters in Christ.

    Blessings

    It seems a bit "heavy" for mosy new Christians in the 21st century.

    "Pursuit of Holiness" by Jerry Bridges is an amazing book on the practical aspects of sanctification.

    Key lessons for new Christians, IMHO.

    Good devotional like "Morning and Evening" by Spurgeon would really help a new believer get into the Word and understand it.

    Know Why You Believe by Paul E. Little
    Knowing Scripture by R.C.Sproul
    Studying, Interpreting, and Applying the Bible by Walter Henrichsen and Gayle Jackson

    Imitatione Christi by Thomas a Kempis.
    Those not fluent in late medieval churchlatin ought to consider using an English translation.

    What?

    A Bible study series by Navpress

    Growing in Christ

    This simple series of studies reviews basic doctrine and encourages memorization.
