This week I have been working on a new Book Recommendation page. You can view it by clicking here. For the most part it is completed, even though it will always be a work in progress. I will be adding new books as I read them, so check back often.
The books I recommend on this page are ones that have influenced and taught me many things about the Christian faith, so I want to recommend them to you in hopes that they will teach you as much as they have taught me throughout the years. I have read almost every book on this page, so be assured it is not a page I put together off of a list somewhere. And I want to assure you the ones I have not read come highly recommended from friends whose lives have been touched as they have read these books. As a result, I felt comfortable recommending them, as well as placing them on my personal reading list. I just need to find the time to get to them.
When you go to the Book Recommendation page, you will be greeted by a bunch of book covers, which are broken down into categories. If you would like to learn more about a book, or purchase it, just click on it. When you do, you will be redirected to Amazon.com’s page for the book. There you can read reviews or add the book to your cart.
In order to get you started, I want to provide you with a quick list of my personal favorites. Of course, all the books on the Book Recommendation page are excellent and are highly recommended, but there are some that have resonated with me more than others. Here are those books:

My name is Mel Everingham and it looks as though you “stumbled upon” by God’s decree, the Truth so very obfuscated in this nation set up in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s to denigrate God’s Sovereignty and elevate man’s hegemony over his “own” world. I was born into a war zone myself, the Godless American home. Through trial, tribulation and unmitigated immersion in my own total and absolute depravity, God had the fully unmerited mercy on me which brings his compassion and capacity for love and forgiveness to such an ineffable quality. I was saved while using the 12 steps in AA to emerge from my alcoholic process of slow suicide.
As a young man I had been given no guidance unto manhood and I was raised by women after the monster deserted us. I dabbled in Baptist Arminianism which the monster had beaten us into conformance unto the image that we carried as a family for the time he dwelled in our home. I survived, barely, through to 32 years of age when I was broken fully to the nothing that I am…….. without Hm.
I was Justified in 2003 as the entirety of my old identity went up in the “Consuming Fire”
Isaiah 33:14 (ESV) 14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling has seized the godless: “Who among us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings?”
Terror no longer reigned in my heart, but faith; annihilation no longer was the name of my destination on the horizon, but hope; absolute separation from God and narcissistic wargames were no longer what guided my interactions with others, but love.
I am married now and studying for a Doctorate in Biblical Studies. I certainly appreciated your book list including some of the Puritan hearts God chose to inscribe the Reformation’s great advance in righteousness through. Shortly after Justification, Our God led us to an ARP Presbyterian Church here in Hendersonville North Carolina, away from the Arminian Baptist hallways of fear, and the doctrine of man’s sovereignty.I was given the great honor of being the conduit through which God drew my wife-to-be, to Christ Jesus; she having the standard broken home as well which led her to denounce faith as I had. I am teaching her through the Westminster Confession of Faith Right now and she has grown so much Casey. After I found the True Faith Christ Graced us to receive, grounded in God’s Sovereignty, I finally knew that the God of the Bible matched the Reformed Theology implicitly. I am going to follow your Blog as it seems we are on the same “page” and if you get a chance Casey take a look at mine if you wish…I just got up and running but did a lot of work on it from a Reformed Perspective on current events and theology from a Reformed Theology Perspective…I have just announced it to my Church Family:
God Bless You Brother!
Thank you for sharing your testimony. Always exciting to hear how one came to faith. I will check out your blog. Thank you for reading mine.
