An essential quality of every leader, teacher, speaker, and writer is to be well read. You’ll often hear writers advise other writers to read good books. You’ll hear people say, “Leaders are readers.” We wholeheartedly agree.
But it can be difficult to determine what to read. After all, there are new books published every day, and scrolling through instagram can lead to several more orders on Amazon. How do we know where to start and which books are “essential”? Enter The Legacy of Faith Library. This eight-volume set features nineteen books written by authors you see quoted all the time.
In college, my professors often assigned readings from authors like Augustine, Spurgeon, and Edwards. At first I was intimidated to read these legends of the faith. These men wrote a long time ago, and I expected old English and archaic sayings. However, I found that it is often easier to read the words of these authors themselves than the words of others writing about them. Our authors also love reading these men of the faith. Now in my job as an editor, I’m often looking up these classic works to complete endnotes in the back of our Bible studies.
The Legacy of Faith Library includes Confessions and City of God by Augustine; Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, The Pilgrim’s Progress, and miscellaneous works by John Bunyan; Heretics and Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton; God Glorified in Man’s Dependence, Christ Exalted, Freedom of the Will, and Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God by Jonathan Edwards; 95 Theses and The Bondage of the Will by Martin Luther; Humility, The Master’s Indwelling, and Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray; Lectures to My Students and All of Grace by Charles Spurgeon; and a selection from Sermons on Several Occasions by John Wesley. Not only do these books contain all of these works, they would also look beautiful on your bookshelf. You know we all dream of a fancy library—this set gets you one step closer!
Right now you can preorder The Legacy of Faith Library with an amazing discount. We admit, it is not an impulse buy, but these classics would make a beautiful gift for your graduate or an encouraging investment in your growth as a believer, teacher, and student of God’s Word.
