The Bible is clearly the most important resource one can use to grow in their faith. (2 Timothy 3:16)
In addition to the Bible, though, I firmly advocate for reading books and doing Bible studies written by Christian authors.
I am thankful for the way God has used various authors to teach and challenge me as I have learned what it means to live out my calling as a disciple of Christ. I’d encourage you to read some of these books if you are interested in learning more about what it means to live a life of passionate pursuit of God. The following resources have helped me enormously as I have grown in my faith.
