Great Books

I love to read, but my favorite reads are often older books.  I like to go back in time and hear the voices of men and women of God who are living close to His heart.  I tend to be a little skeptical of more current writings, especially when I see one hot topic that every current author writes about.  It always makes me wonder if they are hearing from God or following the market.  Call me suspicious.  That said, there are a number of current authors that I enjoy greatly.  This list will grow over time, and I will try to keep it organized to make sense.  I will list titles under the author’s name for easy reference.
