RESOURCES FOR STUDY AND GROWTH

We here at West End Baptist Church like to read books that help us in our understanding of the Bible and biblical concepts. We place the Bible as our number one resource for all guidance and wisdom for living a biblical life that is pleasing to God and gives Him all honor and glory.

However, as humans we realize that looking to those who are older and have more knowledge than we do is a good help in understanding certain passages in the Bible.  Therefore, we have put together a list of books that will aid you in your bible study and Christian walk. Each quarter we will list 10 new books, and you may view our past suggestions here.

Dead Theologian Society

These men fought the good fight and kept the faith winning their hard ran race. These men shaped church history and turned the world upside down with their biblical teaching and preaching. These men and their works are worth getting to know, because it was these men who dared to go against the worldly flow and preach Christ and Him crucified. Thank God such men lived!
