Discipleship resources

The best way to read a book or an article is to grab another person or a group of people and read it together. Talk about what you are learning and learn together. Then the reading really becomes an "excuse" to get together and encourage one another in faith. Below is a list of great articles followed by a list of great books arranged topically. The books range from historical to theological to practical, take your pick. And if you have a book or article you think we should add to the list, let us know!
