Desiring God by John Piper
 
Few contemporary works find a permanent place on my bookshelf. John Piper’s Desiring God is a significant exception. Piper’s message is as profound as his style is engaging. His soul-stirring celebration of the pleasures of knowing God is a must-read for every Christian—and a feast for the spiritually hungry. —John MacArthur

Humility:  True Greatness  -             By: C.J. Mahaney

Humility: True Greatness by C. J. Mahaney
 
“A wonderful, sobering, humbling, God-centered, Bible-based book on humility by an author who truly exemplifies it in his own life. I especially appreciated Mahaney’s suggestions for practical disciplines to help us cultivate humility before God. This message will tend to keep us and our churches from self-destruction due to pride, will make us thankful for little blessings in everyday life, and will bring us closer to God.” —Wayne Grudem, Research Professor of Bible & Theology, Phoenix Seminary

Living A Life of Hope
 

Living a Life of Hope by Nathan Busenitz
 
Of the three supreme virtues—faith, hope, and love (1 Corinthians 13:13)—hope is the most neglected.  The volumes that have been written about faith and love would fill a small library, but solid, in-depth biblical studies on hope are surprisingly rare.  That’s why I am thankful for this marvelous work by Nathan Busenitz.  Comprehensively biblical, sound and thorough, yet warm and practical, this is a wonderful resource for pastors and laypeople alike…”  ~John MacArthur

The Joy of Fearing God by Jerry Bridges
 
We all want a deeper, more intimate relationship with God—one that’s characterized by joy. But how does fearing God lead to joy? After all, aren’t we supposed to love Him and live in intimate relationship with Him? Jerry Bridges explores this paradox as he unpacks the biblical promise that God delights in those who fear Him. ~GBI Books
