Today I thought I would go through and take an inventory of the books I have read in 2016, give a brief synopsis of each, note some strengths and weakness (or lack thereof), and provide a rating on a 1 to 5 scale. I have only included books which I read either in their intirety or a large enough portion to warrant inclusion. Top picks will have their rating displayed in blue. Books are not listed in any particular order. Some of these books can be found in our bookstore. If you are interested in a title, but cannot find it in our store, please message us as firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to secure a copy for you.

My Book List
by George Battey
If you had life to live over again, what books would you read again – knowing what you know now? What books have been the most enjoyable, the most helpful and the most influential to you? If your house were burning down and you could only save a few books, which ones would you snatch from the fire? If the government out-lawed Christianity and you had to hide a few precious books which were the most valuable to you, which ones would you hide? My list is below. I do not regret buying these books nor taking the time to read them.
Books To Build Around
by Nathan Battey
I am often asked by brethren for recommendations for books to begin building their library around. So, I have put together a list of books covering a wide variety of subjects that provide what I believe to be a solid foundation for studying the Bible. Hopefully in the future we will add similar lists compiled by different preaching brethren for your consideration.
If you need any help finding any of these books for purchase, check out our book store or feel free to contact me.
