A "Must-Read" List for Christ Followers

Here recently a Pastor that I have a lot of respect for, Dr. Jack Graham; Senior Pastor at Prestonwood Baptist Church, put out a "Must Read list for Pastors," and he went on to say that this is a great list for any person who claimed to be a follower of Christ. It has been a great guide in my library and I hope it will assist you in building yours as well.

During my time at Prestonwood, I saw Dr. Graham as a great leader and one of the key priciples of his leadership was his desire to always be a learner. He always had his nose in a book and he encouraged us to do the same. It's been a valuable lesson in my life and mininstry and one I'm very thankful for.
