In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Twelve Ordinary Men
by Dr. John MacArthur
Learn all scripture has to say about the apostles and what historical accounts revealed
about them. Jesus took every day men, just like us, and shaped them into leaders
of the church. Every apostle had a different purpose in Gods plan, each doing their
part. Some major, most minor, but important none the less.

The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel
by Dr. C.F.W. Walther
A timeless classic from the father of the Missouri Synod. Back in 1884 he gave seminary
students Friday night lectures. This is a collection of 39 those lectures. Seminary
students to this day are still reading his lessons. You can also benefit from a great
piece of work.
The Author uses his own spiritual experiences as a backdrop to examine what led him
to a relationship with God that was rooted and anchored in the Gospel..

Samson and the pirate monks
By Nate Larkin
With no-holds-barred honesty and poignant storytelling, Nate Larkin introduces a
model of community and friendship that is reinvigorating men's ministry across the
country, a model he calls The Samson Society. Too many men see the biblical hero
Samson as their model for manhood--a rugged individualist of the highest order. Yet,
Samson's solitary successes were eventually overcome by moral weaknesses. Larkin,
through the story of his own past and the stories of those in The Samson Society,
offers a radical, refreshing alternative.
By Robert Koester
As Christians make transitions through life, they often begin to examine their lives
and faith in Christ more closely. They may ask, "Am I living fully for God?" "Am
I putting my faith into practice?" "Am I as pious or devout as I could be?" "Am I
completely focused in my relationship with God?" Sadly, even Christians are not.
Even as Christians get older, new temptations and challenges arise that cause them
to continue to search for piety in life. According to author Robert Koester, "We
are confident that the answers to our need for sanctification are all found in Scripture,
and this book will aim at finding some of those answers."
Courageous - The Movie
An excellent movie about the journey of a group of men who finally start living their
faith. Can’t say too much, don’t want to give anything away. Well worth your time
