Impactful Books

The Gospel of the Kingdom by George Eldon Ladd has broadened my understanding of the good news we carry into a lost and broken world.

The Prophetic Imagination by Walter Brueggemann has inspired my pursuit of the Kingdom of compassion and justice and my preaching and discipleship of others toward the same.

Desiring the Kingdom by James K. A. Smith has shaped the mission of God and ministry of the church around the good news we carry.

N. T. Wright has provided firm eschatological handles through various books and articles to anchor my faith and ministry

The God Plot by Tim Green honed my view of holiness for my own transformation and the discipling of others as well.
