    Brothers, We Are Not Professionals by John Piper (A must read for pastors!)

    A Beginner's Guide to Expository Preaching by Stephen McQuoid (Helpful brush-up for expositors)

    Spurgeon: A New Biography by Arnold Dallimore (Great Intro to Spurgeon)

    Just finished The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney. Great little devotional work.

    I try to always be reading a book for the soul and a book to help my preaching. I'm finding great affection for Christian Biography. I'm getting more into regularly reading something to brush up about pastoral ministry also. And I am regularly reading theology. Piper and Dallimore combine much of these at one whack! :D

    I have finished a delightful novel called "The Number One Ladys Detective Agency" which is delightful, fresh and highly original. It is set in Botswana......

    Also an autobiography of a Master Mariner of British extraction who was in the Merchant Navy. The account of the capture during WW2 is well done and the tedium of over 4 years as a POW of the Germans. I had never realised the enormous casualties sustained by the merchant Navy of UK, over 30% of the MN were killed during this period.

    I'm reading The death of death in the death of Christ by John Owen... Actually written in the 1684... From a reprint put out by The Banner Of Truth Trust.

    I would also like to acknowledge rsr... Who we on the Baptist History Forum know as Stephen... The reason I say this is he mentioned this book and it seemed something I would be interested in reading. The synopsis of the book for those interested in the unusual title... Is that the doctrine of universal redemption is unscriptural and destructive of the gospel.

    I know many times I forget to thank those who have helped me and especially when it comes to a good book to add to your library. I may not read the books that everyone recommends but it is a good place to find recommendations for those on various topics... So get off this computer and curl up with a good one [​IMG] ... I know when I sign off that is what I do... It helps me get a good nights [​IMG] ... Brother Glen The Primitive Baptist [​IMG]

    Preach! Your so well read. You have picked somoe excellent books. I just finished myself "Five views on Law and Gospel", and then my second reading of "The God of Promise and the Life of Faith (Hafemann)". Soon though, I wish to read "The race set before us" by my man Schrein-Dog, as I enjoy everything he writes.

    "Why Preach Against Sin?" By John R. Rice. I'm enjoying it. Although at times I get convicted! I'm also reading my Bible. Proverbs and will start I Corinthians in the morning {Just finished Acts today! I love that book!} I just finished a book by Lori Wick {A Christian fiction writer} called "The Rescue." It was really good. And I'm going to see if our church book store has a book on prayer in school {like a sermon on it} since I have that big report due!

You have got to grab hold of "The Race" and soak it in. It is so concise.
