This past week we talked about building libraries at Crew. Not literal libraries buildings, but each of us beginning/continuing to read books that deeply shape us.
I wanted to list some books that fit into the most important category I mentioned: Books that remind me of the cross. So, spend the rest of your life reading and rereading books about the gospel. I’d read at least 2 of these a year. It’s a mix of old and new.
The Cross of Christ by John Stott
The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney
The Gospel Primer by Milton Vincent
The Cross and Christian Ministry by D. A. Carson
The Atonement by Leon Morris
Death by Love by Mark Driscoll
Pierced For Our Transgressions by Michael Ovey, Andrew Sach, and Steve Jeffrey
The Death of Death in the Death of Christ by John Owen
I’ll think of more I’m sure, but when you get done with those, reread them, let me know and I’ll recommend something else.
