There is no greater text than God’s Word.
God’s Word: Life Application Study Bible:
We would love to resource you with some great books that will help you grow in your personal faith with Jesus Christ. But there is no book that replaces the depth and the power of God’s inspired Word. Any book that you may pick up can be of great help and will teach you and encourage you. But they are only supplemental to the only permanent power-giving source of life, God’s word. So we encourage you to make daily bible reading a #1 discipline in your life. Let everything else be secondary.

Leadership Essentials: Greg Ogden
Maybe you’ve shied away from leadership because you don’t know what it will involve, or you feel too unsure of your own abilities. But your leadership is needed! In every sector of society, from families to businesses to churches, leadership roles remain empty, waiting for people willing and able to step up and make wise decisions that bring positive change. And, in a world with priorities vastly different from Christ’s, Christian leaders are especially needed to point people to him.

A.K.A, An organized guide to the whole bible.
Systematic Theology: Wayne Gudem The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology, that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the Word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introduction to systematic theology has several distinctive features: – A strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching – Clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum – A contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today – A friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect – Frequent application to life – Resources for worship with each chapter – Bibliographies with each chapter that cross-reference subjects to a wide range of other systematic theologies.
Paradoxology: Why Christianity was never meant to be simple: A compelling argument for why believers should welcome Christianity’s tough paradoxes and difficult questions, allowing them to better understand their faith
The Christian faith is full of apparent paradoxes: a compassionate God who sanctions genocide, an all-powerful God who allows horrific suffering, a God who owns everything yet demands so much from his followers, a God who is distant and yet present at the same time. Many Christians have big questions that their faith seems to leave unanswered, so they push them to the back of their minds, for fear of destabilizing our beliefs. But what if the tension between apparently opposing doctrines is exactly where faith comes alive? What if this ancient faith has survived so long not in spite of, but precisely because of, these apparent contradictions? What if it is in the difficult parts of the Bible that God is most clearly revealed? This book makes a bold new claim: that the paradoxes that seem like they ought to undermine belief are actually the heart of vibrant faith, and that it is only by continually wrestling with them—rather than trying to pin them down or push them away—that Christians can really move forward, individually and together.
