Book List

The following is a list of books that I would suggest to any and all people involved in or considering serving God in World Evangelism.  I am in no way implying that I agree with all that is written in these books.  Each person who would consider a position that is so important should be able to “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”  Eat the meat and spit out the bones.  At least one of the books is a secular book and has some inappropriate words but the things to be learned are well worth the reading of the book.
