Recommended books for a pastor in his 20's

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
