influential books

one of the things i enjoy most about the internet is the amazing wealth of resources available for free. today, i got to thinking about some of the books that have been the most influential in my own formation as a follower of Jesus (in addition to the bible), and checked to see what i could find online. i was gratified to find a number of my favorite books. here they are, with links, for your reading pleasure.

what books has God used in your life?

happy new year!

"the object of a new year [observance] is not that we should have a new year. it is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes…. unless a man be born again, he shall by no means enter into the kingdom of heaven." g.k. chesterton
in 2009, may we experience the transforming presence and power of God that makes all things new!

therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!
2 corinthians 5:17
