"What tools are to mechanics, books are to preachers" -Alan Black

As the summer season, minus the heat, is drawing to an end, it is time to embark on another list of books to dive into during the fall season. Another large list is before me, but I know and understand that when I look back on these books that are helping build my library I will be better prepared for the work that God has placed me in. Alan Black said, "Just as no mechanic can do an effective job without adequate tools to perform precision work, so no pastor can ever hope to expound the Bible without good books."

With that being said, here is the fall reading list:

1. Moral Choices-Scott Rae

2. The Mission of God-Christopher Wright

3. Readings in Christian Ethics-David Clark & Robert Rakestraw

4. The Gospel for Real Life-Jerry Bridges

5. Ethics as Worship: Readings for Christian Ethics Theory and Practice-Mark Liederbach

6. When China Rules the World: The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order-Martin Jacques

7. In Spite of the Gods: The Rise of Modern India-Edward Luce

8. Learn to Read Greek New Testament-David Alan Black

9. Using New Testament Greek in Ministry-David Alan Black

10. A Survey of the Old Testament-Andrew E. Hill and John H. Walton

11. Church Planter: The man, the message, the mission-Darrin Patrick
