This is by no means an exhaustive list. It is simply a list of books that I have found useful. This list only contains books and tools that I personally have read or utilize. This list is organized based on a book’s primary category, to show where a book fits with what is regularly written about on Living By Christ.


Each title is also linked to the book on amazon for your convenience. These are affiliate links, which means I make a small commission at not extra cost to you. Your purchase of resources through any affiliate link on the site helps to support this ministry and is greatly appreciated.

PLEASE NOTE: Just because I have read these books and recommend them, does not mean that I agree with every word or action spoken, written, or performed. I simply enjoyed the content and found it beneficial to my walk with the Lord, and hope that it will do the same for you.
