Disclaimer: Not all the materials held within these books are the viewpoints of our contributors. Despite this, there is some wonderful materials to be gleaned and utilized for the enrichment of your spirit.
I hope you enjoy these brief reviews and that they become helpful recommendations.
Halley’s Bible Handbook ~ Henry Hampton Halley
Halley’s Bible Handbook is a staple Bible study resource as it hold’s historical cultural information, terminology, and study notes for whatever Biblical topic you are exploring. This handbook is all compact so it is easy to carry on trips.
This book is not devotional in nature but as a reference is among the best. I highly encourage adding this resource to your library!
Rightly Dividing the Word ~ Clarence Larkin
Clarence Larkin is known for his informational charts and contributions to 20th century dispensational theology. This resource is one of his most popular resources that explores classic dispensationalism and is helpful in understanding the distinction between Israel and the Church.
In understanding this distinction, the Body of Christ can begin to live within the grace supplied by Gospel of Jesus Christ and to grow, living for His glory!
Full Assurance ~ H.A. Ironside
In this classic work by notable preacher, H. A. Ironside, he highlights the reasons you can be sure of your salvation and the freedom that comes from accepting the finality of Christ’s work. Admittingly, this is not the easiest read as Ironside’s writing can be lofty at times, but that gives all the more reason to slow down and enjoy reading it!
I 10/10 suggest this book and pray it provides peace who need peace with this topic.
Letters to Malcom: Chiefly on Prayer ~ C.S. Lewis
It is a goal of mine to always supply you, the reader, with some C.S. Lewis suggestions as they always have something to offer devotionally! This book was published after the death of Lewis and records conversations with a fictional character by the name of Malcom.
The primary idea behind this book is the depiction of an intimate relationship between man and God. Additionally, it offers some of Lewis’s notes on the condition of the Anglican church and how a more relational outlook on the church would remedy their shortcomings. This book is an excellent book with plenty of contemporary proverbs to live by!
If you are a serious fan of Lewis, I can not recommend this book highly enough!
At the Thone of Grace ~ John MacArthur
Possibly the most devotional-in-nature book on this list, this book of topical prayers by John MacArthur is a great book to guide study sessions and prayer time a like. MacArthur does an excellent job of incorporating Scripture in the prayers so the person prayer does not have to be concerned with prayers not aligned the desires of God.
In some prayers, I disagree on how the Scripture is applied but overall this book is an excellent work and great for group and individual devotionals!
Enriching Grace Commentary of 2 Timothy ~ Jacob Harris
This book is my third work in Enriching Grace’s, Understanding the Faith, series. We delayed the arrival of this work, so that 1 Timothy could be rightly digested in preparation for Paul’s final work preceding his death. We pray you read this work alongside an open Bible and edified, able to stand and “teach no other doctrine.”
Although I may be slightly bias, I recommend this work highly!
This is Enriching Grace’s new compiled notes on Ephesians! It is the first published work by contributor Jacob Harris and is intended to be a very practical look into the epistle. This commentary is now available on Amazon. This is an exciting time in the ministry!
This is the second published work by Enriching Grace and its emphasis is on the epistle of 1 Timothy! It is the second work of contributor Jacob Harris and once again intends to take a look to practical applications of the letter while allowing it to remain within its proper context! Excited for this bit of our ministry to be shared!
This is the recommended read list for the month of October!
Lastly, I hope you were enriched in some way through these suggestions and leave a comment if you have read any of these books or have a comment to make!
