More books that every Christian should read:

The Holiness of God - R.C. Sproul
When was the last time you trembled in the presence of God? When was the last time you were bowed low in humility before the greatness of our God? When was the last time you felt compelled to lift adoration to your Maker? If it's been awhile since you felt this way, you may want to consider reading this book.

Sproul begins the book with a story, communicating a very personal, and sobering encounter he had with the holiness of God. He then begins to explain what it means that God is holy. He explains the staggering meaning behind the cry of 'Holy, Holy, Holy' found in Isaiah 6, and paints a picture of the prophet Isaiah cursing himself for his lack of holiness. Sproul shows the glories of our transcendent God, and the vast differences between us and our Creator. He examines the fear of God, the burning justice of God, and what it means to have peace with God. Finally, Sproul concludes with an exhortation to Christians, calling them to be holy as their Father in heaven is holy.

This book truly is a must-read book. It is destined to be a classic of the Christian faith and will serve as kindling for the fires of your love for God. Special thanks to Justin Taylor for this recommendation.

In Light of Eternity - Randy Alcorn
Does the thought of heaven seem boring to you? When you think of heaven, do you think of harps, clouds, robes, and distant choirs of angels singing in the background. If so, you really need to read this book. It will drastically change the way you think about heaven. In this short, easily readable book, Alcorn helps us to understand what heaven is really going to be like. He makes it clear that heaven is going to be anything but boring! Here's a quote to stir your longings for heaven:

When we arrive there, heaven will immediately feel like home because we'll instinctively connect it to all we longed for an occasionally caught magical glimpses of while on earth. But in heaven we won't just look back; we'll look forward to and anticipate all that's ahead of us there. The longer we're in heaven, the more memories we'll make and the more our home will be...home.
This book made me long for heaven, may it do the same for you!
