Recommended Reading

We are quite persuaded that the very best way for you to be spending your leisure time, is to be either reading or praying. You may get much instruction from books which afterwards you may use as a true weapon in your Lord and Master’s service. Paul cries, “Bring the books” — join in the cry.” 
― Charles Haddon Spurgeon


Reading books can not only inform you, but transform your mind and your heart.  In an age of technology, less and less people are reading books and are opting for screen time in their leisure.  At Redeemer, we encourage you to have less screen time and more book reading.  We also encourage you to not pick any book whose title seems interesting, but rather to ensure that what you are reading has enduring value for our present age, and also for many years to come.  We hope that these resources will be as helpful to you as they have been to us.
