Today I got to thinking about the most influential books in my life outside the most important book, the Bible … The theme that keeps coming back is Romans 11:36 – “For from him and to him and through him are all things.  To him be glory forever and ever.  Amen.”

  • The Doctrine of God – John Frame
  • Desiring God – John Piper
  • The Pleasures of God – John Piper
  • The Sovereignty of God – A.W. Pink
  • The Holiness of God – R.C. Sproul
  • Chosen by God – R.C. Sproul
  • Willing to Believe – R.C. Sproul
  • Total Truth – Nancy Pearcy
  • The Institutes of the Christian Religion – John Calvin
  • The End for Which God Created the World – Jonathan Edwards
  • The Freedom of the Will – Jonathan Edwards
  • Religious Affections – Jonathan Edwards


  1. Pastor Dave, I came across a book by the puritan (at least I think he is a Puritan), Thomas Watson. It is entitled, The Mischief of Sin. Know anything about it?

  2. Yes, Thomas Watson was a Purtian; one of my favorites as a matter of fact. Mischief of Sin is a great book. I read it back in 94′ and have been devouring his works ever since! I’ll bring it to church and you’re welcome to borrow if you like.
