from Randy Alcorn
Recently I was asked to recommend some books for a pastor in his twenties to read.
It's tragic that many Christian adults, including many current church leaders and even some pastors, are so immersed in popular culture and so undisciplined that they do not turn off the television and devote themselves to daily study of God’s Word and reading of Christian books centered on God’s Word. I hope this list might encourage you to go out and find some good books to read as you start the New Year.
This is the list of books I came up with:
The J. I. Packer Collection (Packer’s best) compiled by Alistair McGrath
Exegetical Fallacies by D. A. Carson
The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God by D. A. Carson
God is the Gospel by John Piper
Their God is Too Small: Open Theism and the Undermining of Confidence in God by Bruce Ware
Why We’re not Emergent: By Two Guys Who Should Be by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck
Young, Restless and Reformed: A Guide to the New Calvinists by Collin Hansen
Doing Theology With Huck and Jim: Parables for Understanding Doctrine by Mark Shaw
