rrthumbTell the Truth: The Whole Gospel to the Whole Person by Whole People by Will Metzger is a very helpful book that both doctrinally and practically aids the reader when it comes to personal evangelism. This book has been around for several decades and this most recent edition testifies to its enduring value. I found it very helpful in my own quest to be a more effective evangelist for the Lord. (This title is not available for Kindle at the time of writing.)

Decision Points by George W. Bush is a fascinating read. Like many, the media tended to prejudice me against many of this president’s decisions. This book gives some wonderful insights into his thought processes with reference to things such as leadership, family and war. But what has thoroughly blessed me is his forthrightness about the gospel and how Jesus Christ changed his life. You may not have always agreed with his decisions, but as far as I can discern from what he has written, his faith in Christ is real and therefore relevant to many of his policies.

Killing Calvinism: How to Destroy a Perfectly Good Theology from the Inside by Greg Dutcher is a must read for those who love the doctrines of grace. Its premise is that many who hold to these doctrines (also known as “Calvinism”) often give the doctrines of grace a bad name by their behaviour and by a subtle but dangerous shift of focus from God to a systemised system of doctrines. Greg Dutcher is a pastor who writes with a heart for the sheep and especially for the Shepherd. I found his style both easy and yet painfully pointed. If you know any Calvinist who needs to be put in a cage, then this book should accompany him! Read it and you will understand what I mean. (This title is available in Kindle format from Amazon.com.)

A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain and God’s Sovereignty by Joni Eareckson Tada is a very helpful, insightful and mature look at suffering in a very broken world. If you are in pain or know someone who is, then this book will prove to be of great benefit. Even if (at the moment) you are pain-free, read and be further equipped to help your brothers and sisters as they undergo suffering at the hands of the God who is sovereign. (This title is available in Kindle format from Amazon.com.)

Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices by Mosab Hassan Yousef is a book I could hardly put down. An incredible story of the son of one of the founders of the terrorist organisation Hamas, who spent ten years working as a spy in Palestine for the Israeli government. But what is most remarkable is that this man who was steeped in Islam became a Christian. It is a remarkable account of the grace of God. I found it helpful in understanding something of the dynamics of what is happening in Palestine as well as the fact that Islam is so often more an issue of culture than of conviction. This book will give you hope. (This title is available in Kindle format from Amazon.com.)
