Hi Isaiah,

What a great question. I’ll answer this on the grounds that you share some of your favourite reads in response?

James KA Smith’s series, Cultural Liturgies:

  • Desiring the Kingdom
  • Imagining the Kingdom
  • Awaiting the King

NB, these are dense to work through, but incredible tools for discipleship and thinking through personal and communal transformation. His popular work is more accessible: You Are What You Love

Other personally formative books were the following:

  • Lectures to my Students - C.H.Spurgeon
  • Humility - Andrew Murray
  • Generous Justice - Tim Keller
  • The Cost of Discipleship - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Books Helpful for apologetics/evangelism

  • A Secular Age - Charles Taylor
  • Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview - William Lane Craig & J.P. Moreland
  • Seven Types of Atheism - John Gray
  • Can We Trust the Gospels? - Peter Williams

Thanks for such a great question! Please send me things you’ve enjoyed.

Cheers,
Alex
