In Light of Eternity

The Ravenhill bio is inspiring, encouraging, helpful, greatly enjoyable.  Easily in my top 5 all time biographies. I will read this again someday. I just gave my copy away, and sent one to another shepherd I love and want to encourage.

Spiritual Depression

This Lloyd-Jones book is about helping people that struggle with different kinds of sin (not clinical depression). I have a friend with a masters in Christian counselling who says this is the most helpful book he has ever read on being a people helper – specifically helping them with the common struggles of sin people deal with.

BONUS: if an elder doesn’t like to read, the hardback (pictured) comes with an audio CD of the sermons on which the book was based.

The Reformed Pastor

This book by Richard Baxter is the best book I have read on pastoral work. It’s very, very instructive, challenging, encouraging, inspiring.  It’s an easy read – keeps your attention and will definitely build pastoral care and ability in a willing life.Plus it’s an incredible story of a local move of God through a willing shepherd of people.
