The first one that comes to mind is 'In the Presence of My Enemies' by Gracia Burnham. That's a good book!

Mine are:
The Bible,
Do Hard Things,
Jesus in Blue Jeans,(by Laurie Beth Jones,)

I guess I need to read some more. (Most of my fav. books are fiction.)

I have heard a lot of good things about John Piper, and C. J. Mahaney, but I'm not so familiar with John MacArthur. What else has he written? :-)

We use to go to John MacArther's church in Cal. We are going to return there for a visit this sunday. I really enjoyed: the "Jesus Freaks" books by Dc Talk, "Do Hard Things" by Alex and Brett Harris, and of course the "Bible".

The Bible, Do Hard Things, God Called a Girl (Shannon Kubiak), aside from biographies of men and women of faith, such as Eric Liddell, Amy Carmichael, Hudson Taylor...
