As Iron Sharpens Iron, by Howard and William Hendricks

Respected authors Howard and William Hendricks show that the most dramatic spiritual and personal growth often happens through the influence of a mentor.

The Barnabas Way, by John Sloan

John Sloan explores an untapped secret of spiritual life that invites God's personal, intimate presence throughout each day. The secret is simple, but not necessarily easy: when we reach out to others, God draws near to us. This truth is vividly illustrated in the life of Barnabas, the New Testament model of an encourager.

Bound for Glory, by R.C. Sproul, Jr.

R.C. Sproul Jr. reminds us that God has a plan for the family, and more specifically, for us as men to be the leaders of our households. He encourages us to develop Godly character in our lives, to make God’s Word known in our families, to help our wives and children grow and flourish in their Christian lives, and to take responsibility for the testimony of our family to others.

Called and Accountable, by Henry Blackaby and Kerry Skinner

God has chosen and appointed each of us to bear fruit that will last for eternity. This truth is found on almost every page throughout the Bible, and it is an expression of the very heart of God. When this truth grips your heart, you are never the same again.

The Church of Irresistible Influence, by Robert Lewis

A city set on a hill, inescapably visible. A lit lamp brilliantly illuminating the darkest room. With compelling metaphors, Jesus described the church and its impact on the world. And indeed, filled with the Holy Spirit, the early church demonstrated a spiritual energy and depth that transformed the surrounding culture. Don't let your church settle for less!

Jesus Up Close, by Skip Heitzig

Pastor Skip Heitzig presents seventeen colorful, in-depth character studies of people who met and interacted with our beloved Savior, the radical Son of God. Through these studies, we get to see Jesus up close and personal. From a paralytic to a prostitute to the apostle Paul himself, we learn that Jesus meets us wherever we are. When He does, He changes us deeply.

Knowing God, by J.I. Packer

There's a difference between knowing God and knowing about God. When you truly know God -- who He is, what He desires, and how He loves you -- you have the energy to serve Him, boldness to share Him, and contentment in Him.

Knowing God Through Fasting, by Elmer Towns

What is fasting? What is its purpose, and how does it work? Elmer Towns describes how fasting brings you closer to God, and he discusses the benefits that come when we deny our bodies and feed on the Bread of Life!

Lifestyle Evangelism, by Joe Aldrich

Dr. Aldrich helps us become a magnet for the Master by showing us how to establish common ground with the unsaved, build relationships, and live a life that exemplifies the character of Jesus.

Life Wide Open, by Dr. David Jeremiah

Dr. David Jeremiah opens our eyes to how we can live a life that exudes an attitude of hope and enthusiasm... a life of passion... a Life Wide Open for God!

The Ministry of Intercessory Prayer, by Andrew Murray

A prayer classic by Andrew Murray that unlocks the secrets of intercessory prayer. It will not only strengthen your own faith and energize your time with God, but through the lessons taught in this book, you will learn how to intercede for others with tremendous results!

Overcoming Overload, by Steve and Mary Farrar

Steve Farrar, author of Point Man, encourages us to examine the beliefs that drive us to distraction, and how to trade them in for practices that restore our strength and vitality.

Point Man, by Steve Farrar

Point man is a military term used to describe the lead position for a patrol. The point man leads the rest of the team around snipers, ambushes, traps and other hostile situations, keeping them safe until the journey is over. If the point man makes a wrong decision it could cost the entire team their lives. Steve Farrar uses this illustration to demonstrate the importance of a man’s role within his family.

The Power of a Praying Husband, by Stormie Omartian

Learn how a praying husband can powerfully lead his family!

The Purpose Driven Church, by Rick Warren

The thesis of this book is that explosive church growth can occur when church leaders stop thinking about church-building programs and shift their focus to a "people-building process" involving fellowship, discipleship, worship, and evangelism.

Renovation of the Heart, by Dallas Willard

Dallas Willard presents the tools necessary for spiritual formation. Spiritual growth doesn't just happen; you have to work at it. This book is for those who are sincere about spiritual growth and making the effort to become more Christ-like.

Sanctuary, by David Jeremiah

This 365-day devotional will enable you to find moments of refuge in the presence of God. Each daily reading features a Scripture passage and insightful comments from Dr. Jeremiah that will jumpstart your morning and give you something to meditate upon during the day.

Twelve Ordinary Men, by John MacArthur

John MacArthur brings you face to face with the disciples as you've never seen them before. When you take a fresh look at the disciples, you'll be faced with a stunning fact: the men the Savior chose were ordinary. Hopelessly human. Remarkably unremarkable. But they were available and obedient to the Master's call.

Wild at Heart, by John Eldredge

John Eldredge invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. Through vivid imagery and an exploration of the passion and fierceness in the heart of God, this book will give you the courage to be what God intended you to be: passionate, alive, and free.
