An Incomplete List of Helpful Books

Here are some books that have helped form me, inspire me, or change my thinking. It is by no means comprehensive, and it is certainly not up-to-date. I’ll figure how I want to handle books as resources. There can be no underestimating the usefulness and power of a good (or even bad) book. Of course, all the reading and learning aren’t worth anything outside of an experience with the living God that creates a living word in you.

[Minister’s Disclaimer: I don’t necessarily agree with everything in all of these books, and I don’t necessarily recommend this to every reader.]


These are some books I read while in undergrad, that were really in my pursuit of God. These are mostly in the order that I read them.

The Irresistible Revolution, Shane Claiborne

Mere Discipleship, Lee Camp

Reading Paul, Michael Gorman

Cost of Discipleship, Bonhoeffer

Eat this Book, Eugene Peterson

The Feast, Josh Graves

The New Testament and the People of God, N.T. Wright


Grad School

These are just a few books from my first semester of grad school that were stellar. This needs updated in a big way!

The Cross in Our Context, Douglass John Hall

Surprised by Hope, N.T. Wright
