Have you ever read a book that set your mind and heart on fire? That radically changed the way you viewed life, read Scripture, or interacted with God and others? All of the books below did this for me.
I have previously called them “Burning Books,” not because they must burned, but because they branded themselves into my mind. They set my mind on fire and my heart ablaze. The ideas they contain smolder in my bones, shed light on the Scriptures, and help bring life to the world.
If you underline books and scribble in the margins while you read, these books have marks on nearly every sentence. They answer a question you have always had, solve a dilemma you have faced, or help with an issue in a way you have not found anywhere else. These books change the way you think, ignite your passion for a purpose, and gave you an “Aha!” moment that sends you in a new direction.
The books below have done all these things for me. These are some of the book that have helped form and change my theology. These are the books I recommend most.
Note: more books will be added to the list as I think of them (or read them). If you have one you think should be on the list, let me know in the comment section below.
