  1. I see we share several favorites. I read My Utmost for His Highest every morning. Learn so much from that humble and wonderful follower of Christ. Also love Mere Christianity, and the Pursuit of God by Tozer. Three giants in the Christian faith. So looking forward to getting to know you better on Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads. Blessings.

    1. Look forward to getting to know you also Christine. Thanks for following. :)

  2. My Utmost for his Highest is Awesome. I also love the Pursuit of God. I would like to recommend - if you like both of those - The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation John. I have a couple of Jerry's books on my e-reader, but haven't read them yet.

  3. I've read some that you've listed. Thanks for sharing.
