Books I Recommend

There are many books that have impacted my life in a great way, but several stand out above the rest. Two great works by John MacArthur effected me in ways that will last for the rest of my days; one of those is Ashamed of the Gospel, the other is The Gospel According to Jesus. I highly recommend them for your library.

With small congregations struggling to keep their doors open, and larger churches competing for their share of the unchurched market, many are looking to new techniques to draw bigger crowds.

In Ashamed of the Gospel, John MacArthur offers a biblical analysis of the user-friendly philosophy of ministry and church growth that is sweeping through many congregations.


What did Jesus mean when He said, “Follow me”?  Twenty years ago John MacArthur tackled that seemingly simple question and provided the evangelical world with the biblical answer.  For many, the reality of Jesus’ demands has proved thoroughly searching, profoundly disturbing, and uncomfortably invasive; and yet, heeding His words is eternally rewarding.

The 20th-anniversary edition of MacArthur’s provocative book has revised and expanded the original version to handle contemporary challenges.  The debate over what some have called “lordship salvation” hasn’t ended—every generation must face the demands Christ’s lordship.  The Gospel According to Jesus remains eminently relevant for the Christian church, and intensely practical for every Christian.

    Yes, I was privileged to have read Dr. John MacArthur’s book, Ashamed of the Gospel. In it I learned much of what it should be the biblical way of raising biblical, God-honoring churches. May God continue to use you and Dr. MacArthur for His glory
